Cheryl has been involved in Saskatchewan Games at a sport level, and Canada Games as a parent, but is a rookie when it comes to Mission Staff for Canada Games. Check out what her answers were to our questions!
Q: Why did you want to be Mission Staff for the Prince George 2015 Canada Winter Games?
A: I love the idea of a multi-sport games. I want to make sure the athletes get the very most possible out of the games experience.
Q: Any words of advice for our Team Sask participants?
A: For the athletes and coaches I just want to say relax and have fun. Try your best but 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!
