2023 Canada Winter Games Team Coach Applications - Now Open

Canada Winter Games is a multi-sport event held every four years representing the highest level of National Competition for young Canadian athletes. The PEI 2023 Canada Winter Games will be held February 18 – March 5, 2023, and will offer Pre-Novice level competition in Singles, Pairs, and Dance, as well as Special Olympics. CWG is an excellent opportunity to experience a team environment, larger than figure skating, as athletes attend Opening/Closing Ceremonies with all Alberta athletes…often making friendships that last a lifetime.

These opportunities would not be possible without the commitment from Team Coaches, who are selected every four years to join our Section athletes.

Coaches are invited to apply for two positions (one Male and one Female Coach) for the 2023 Canada Winter Games in Prince Edward Island.  We are seeking coaches with an NCCP level of National In-Training or Higher.

Deadline for Applications is NOON on Wednesday, August 31, 2022
