Coach New Brunswick’s Women to Watch Grant

Coach NB is dedicated at decreasing barriers that may result in impact women in their ability to reach their full coaching education goals. The Coach NB Women to Watch Grant Program is a key initiative that will provide financial assistance to women coaches looking to advance in their coaching pathway.

Grants will be awarded to women coaches in the Province of New Brunswick to assist them in further developing the skills necessary to attain a higher level of coaching or increased level of coaching experience. The grant aims at helping to offset cost associated with their coach development (i.e., course/event fees, travel, childcare…).

The grants applications will be accessed bi-annually with a maximum of $1500 being disbursed per fiscal year (max $500/recipient).  The grant will remain open throughout the year closing on February 15th until the start of the next fiscal (April 1st).   Click HERE

Canada Games Foundation

  • The Canada Games Saint John FoundationThe purpose of the Foundation is to support athlete training so that they are able to pursue excellence in sport. Athletes must have the potential to be among the best in Canada, have demonstrated dedication to their sport, have special needs not covered through regular program funding, and must not be subsidized by national programs (i.e. hold a national card). 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.
