SportLink – Greater Sudbury Sport Council is currently accepting applications for two (2) one year contract positions. The positions are funded by the Ontario Trillium Foundation, 12 month projects created to undertake research on how to build capacity within amateur sports groups in Northern Ontario.

Helping to foster more active lifestyles, the goal of this initiative is to assist in the training and certification of coaches, officials and volunteers, in a variety of sports, with the impact expected to reach the lives of more than 80,000 people in Northern Ontario.

The end results should create higher quality programming and infrastructure to support physical activity, using current technologies at our disposal, with an emphasis on training across all sectors.

The contract positions will be responsible for:

- researching the various opportunities that technology might present, specifically in working with the likes of Contact North, allowing reach throughout Northern Ontario

- developing recommendations and implementing alternative options in terms of the types of training models currently being utilized

- work hand in hand with the SportLink Executive Director, looking for areas to grow the scope of the project within the OTF guidelines that have been presented, all while doing so in a cost effective manner

- tracking of the reach of the project, both directly via a count of new coaches, officials and volunteers that were trained, but also through the extended reach that the additional training provides

- prepare an end project report, outlining key accomplishments, targeted goals and their each, identifying the challenges that remain and offering suggestions on how best to overcome these hurdles



- degree or background in Sports Administration

- business and/or management experience

- candidate should be a self-starter with plenty of initiative

- strong communication skills, both written and verbal

- understanding of the structure of the not-for-profit sector in which the large majority of

amateur sports operates
