The New Brunswick Sports Hall of Fame has partnered with New Brunswick’s most accomplished athletes and sport builders to inspire and excite youth to participate in sport.
Youth inactivity is becoming an ever-increasing problem in our society. Left unchecked, it will lead to unprecedented levels of obesity and vast increases in chronic disease. In response, the New Brunswick Sports Hall of Fame is making New Brunswick’s most accomplished athletes and sport builders available for visits to grade 6 classrooms around the province.
Presentations feature the inspiring personal stories of the Sports Ambassadors on their road to success. They will talk about the obstacles they had to overcome and their achievements in the world of sport.
In addition, teachers are provided with pre-visit activities to introduce the students to the New Brunswick Sports Hall of Fame, as well as post-visit activities and projects related to student participation in sports.
The key objectives of the Sports Ambassadors program are:
- To promote the benefits of sport participation.
- To inspire youth to participate in sport through the delivery of compelling personal stories delivered by Sports Ambassadors.
