Wolfville, NS – The Wolfville Tritons Swim Club is pleased to announce that it has been awarded $2,000 for coaching education and development through the General Motors Making Dreams Possible Grant Program.
In an effort to continually enhance Canada’s community sport programs through coach training and developmental activities, 100 grants of $2,000 each through the Making Dreams Possible program were available to be awarded to local sport organizations for youth aged 5 to 18.
“The GM program is a great opportunity for small, grass-roots sports programs to get the financial support needed for coaching education and development,” said Tritons Head Coach, Chris Stone.
“With this grant, we’ll be able to help our newer assistant coaches start their coaching education, while our veteran assistants will be able to further their knowledge of the sport.”
Not-for-profit community sport clubs, associations and/or leagues for youth participating in Olympic or Paralympic sports were eligible to apply for a community-coaching grant. Organizations must also be affiliated with their respective provincial or territorial sport organization or national sport organization. Complete eligibility information is available at www.coach.ca.
The community coaching grants will be awarded twice annually. The Coaching Association of Canada (CAC) is responsible for the administration of Making Dreams Possible.
The Wolfville Tritons Swim Club is a member of Swim Nova Scotia, the provincial sports organization for competitive swimming in Nova Scotia, and a member of Swimming/Natation Canada, the national governing body for swimming in Canada.
