Athlete Leadership Opportunity
This is your chance to be involved in shaping sport in BC
Want to be more involved? Join the BC Athlete Voice Athlete Council
The Vancouver chapter of the BC Athlete’s Council is looking for dedicated enthusiastic go getters to join the team.
What does the council do? We have an impact on issues affecting athletes in the province.
The Athlete’s council is active in supporting athletes in finding funding, advice, as well as connecting athletes with other athletes. The council plays a critical role in keeping athlete issues in the focus of key decision makers, including funding groups, within the sport system.
What is the Commitment? Meetings require 1-2 hours per month, accessible from anywhere.
BC Athlete Voice recognizes that all top athletes naturally lead very busy lives. Our Athlete Councils are set up to fit within your busy schedules. Meetings are often conducted via Skype or teleconference. There will be some opportunities for face to face meetings and networking opportunities as well.
What are the council positions?
We are looking to comprise a committee which includes:
A Vice Chair
And 5 Members at Large
What are the council’s goals? Our short term goals include:
Establishing an Athlete Gala which promotes and recognizes the great work of BC Athletes.
Setting up an Athlete Mentor Program which pairs up experienced athletes to share their wisdom with up and comers.
Creating an Athlete Grant which can assist athletes with funding to support their athletic goals
What is the next step? Attend our meeting this November to learn more.
