Introducing today's #MissionStaffSpotlight
Name: Jennifer Robinson
Mission Staff role: Short Track Speed Skating and Synchronized Swimming
Jennifer has been part of Canada Games as a coach for Team Sask, but never as a Mission Staff. See what she has to say about herself! (Coaches, don’t miss the advice she has to give!)
Q: What other Games have you been involved in, and in what capacity?
A: Western Canada Summer Games – Coach, Swimming. Saskatchewan Summer Games – Coach, Swimming. Alberta Summer Games – Coach, Swimming. Alberta Winter Games – Zone 8 Director.
Q: Any words of advice for our Team Sask participants?
A: I would encourage the coaches to enjoy the experience and please let Mission Staff know how we can assist them as they prepare their athletes for competition prior to the games and throughout the games.
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!
