Meet today's #MissionStaffSpotlight
Name: Joel Houseman
Mission Staff role: Hockey (male and female)
While Joel has been involved in Saskatchewan Games and other sporting events, this is his first time as Mission Staff for the Canada Games. We asked him a few questions, and this is what he had to say.
Q: Why did you want to be Mission Staff for the Prince George 2015 Canada Winter Games?
A: I wanted to be part of the Canada Games, I am really excited to go and experience an Olympic type event.
Q: Any words of advice to our Team Sask participants?
A: Work hard, have fun, and enjoy the experience.
Mission Staff are volunteers for Team Sask who act as a liason between the team and the host society. They will do their best to ensure that all of the logistics around your time at the Canada Games run smoothly, allowing the athletes, coaches and managers to focus on competition. Mission Staff will handle the orders of boxed lunches, call transportation if a bus is running behind, inform the team of important information regarding the Games, etc. Most importantly though, Mission Staff are there to cheer you on and support the team.
Make sure you say hi to the Team Sask Mission Staff; it will make their day!
