  • As exciting as new buildings and facilities are, the 2019 Canada Games will owe its success to one thing more than anything else… volunteers.  It will take about 5,000 volunteers to ensure everything runs smoothly.  It’s a massive effort the likes of which Red Deer has never seen.  But the Canada Games team is absolutely confident that the people of Central Alberta will come through.  In fact they wouldn’t have bid on the games if they weren’t sure the public would support them by volunteering.

    While hundreds have already signed up in the months and years leading to the event… now is the time for everyone to fill those 5,000 critical jobs.

    With 10 months to go before the games start, the 2019 Canada Winter Games has opened a Volunteer Centre for anyone interested to come, ask questions, become informed, and even sign up to help out.    The Volunteer Centre’s fist day is  Saturday, April 21.  There’s an open house from 10 am to 2 pm. CEO Scott Robinson fills us in.

  • The Alberta Sport Development Centre – Central (ASDC-C) is pleased to announce that the ASDC-Central Female Athlete of the Month for April 2018 is Samantha Gagnon.

    Samantha Gagnon is an 18 year old, grade 12 student at Notre Dame High School, Red Deer resident and a competitive Volleyball athlete.

    Samantha (Sam) comes from a volleyball family with both parents having played university and professional volleyball, with her father having represented Canada in the 1992 Barcelona Olympics in Volleyball. Sam played the past two seasons with the Senior Volleyball Team at Notre Dame High School, the past 5 seasons with the Queens Volleyball Club, and this past summer (2017) was a member of Team Alberta (17U age group) that competed at the USA Volleyball High Performance Championships in Florida.

    An excellent student/athlete, Sam excels on the court, in the classroom and is an accomplished musician and fluent in French.  Sam has been part of ASDC-Central’s Athlete Enhancement Program since 2016 and is part of the Gold level program for athletes who have committed themselves to their sport and their training.

    Gagnon’s club team is pushing hard for a medal at the upcoming provincial final tournament, which might be the end of the road for many other grade 12’s.  Not Gagnon though.  Samantha has signed on to play with the UBC Okanagan Heat in Kelowna next year, where she will major in Business.

    Sam’s strong work ethic, her undeniable athletic abilities and her training experiences with ASDC-Central will ensure that Sam continues to grow, develop and succeed in her Volleyball career!

     

    Congratulations to Samantha Gagnon, ASDC Athlete of the month!
