Coach New Brunswick’s Above and Beyond Coaching Grant

After much consideration and evaluating how we can best serve the coaches in our Province, Coach NB has decided that as of March 31, 2018, the Grant program will no longer be offered. Coach Education is funded through different avenues in our province (see list below).  I encourage you to speak to your Provincial or Local Sport Organization, which has a responsibility in supporting the development of their coaches to see how they can assist you and/or speak to your Provincial/Regional Consultant for more information about the grants listed below

It is the Foundation’s policy to award grants for those specific sports approved for competition at future Canada Summer and Canada Winter Games.  They support Athletes & Coaches.

With this funding program, the Foundation wishes to encourage the development of amateur sports by offering financial help to athletes, coaches, major officials and sports organizations towards their pursuit of excellence.The Foundation inspires to increase exposure of New Brunswick athletes at the national and international level.Financial assistance for athletes, coaches and officials who participate in sports that are part of the Canada Games (winter or summer) will be our first priority.  Eligibility; priority will be given to the Restigouche/Chaleur & Residents of other parts of New Brunswick .  They support Athletes and Coaches.
