Women in Coaching Apprentice Coach Program

Team Alberta has an opportunity to include 2 female apprentice coaches in the Women in Coaching Apprenticeship Program.

The Apprenticeship Coach Program is a cost-shared program made possible through the partnership of the Canada Games Council, Sport Canada, Coaching Association of Canada, Aboriginal Sport Circle, Provincial/Territorial Coaching Coordinators, the 2023 Canada Winter Games Host Society, selected Provincial/Territorial Sport Organizations, Apprentice Coaches and the Sport, Physical Activity and Recreation Branch.

The Apprentice Coach will be part of the sport’s Canada Games coaching staff (in addition to the number of positions listed in the 2023 Canada Winter Games technical package).  Travel to the Games as well as accommodations and meals in the athlete’s village will be provided.  Team Alberta will provide a walk-out uniform and include the apprentice coach in all Team Alberta events.

If your organization is interested in submitting a candidate, please refer to the attached Women in Coaching Apprenticeship Program Application Procedure and Guidelines.

If you are interested in applying for this program, please contact Biathlon Alberta’s General Manager, Elmar Heger, before December 20, 2021, at elmar@biathlon.ca to discuss the process. Biathlon Alberta will have to nominate the coach to the provincial government.
