I have corporately sponsored the BC Football Conference (BCFC) – the junior league made up of six teams – McKinnon Player of the Game. I designed and delivered a workshop to the teams to help them learn job search skills. The workshop is called “Overview of the Hiring Game – How to Build Your Playbook to Get Hired!”
Working with Scott Ackles, General Manager of the 2011 Grey Cup Festival, Christine Nicolls, Manager of Volunteers, and the other Volunteer Committee’s Managers, I was the Chair for the Volunteer Orientation and Training committee. We were responsible to write the Volunteer Training Manual, handle the logistics for the training weekend, collect door prizes, and I delivered the training to the 500 volunteers.

It has been my pleasure to have attended three Grey Cup Games in Vancouver and participated in two Grey Cup Parades.
I am very excited to be asked to be a part of the BC Provincial Football Association Host Organizing Committee for the International Federation American Football (IFAF) 2017 Women’s World Tackle Football Championships held in Langley June 24th – June 30th. Six teams competed in the championships, USA defending the Gold Medal, Canada defending the Silver Medal, Finland defending the Bronze Medal and three teams first games, Australia, Great Britain, and Mexico.
There are 45 dedicated players in each team who will be lacing up their cleats, strapping on their shoulder pads, throwing on a helmet and hitting the field to play the game they love – tackle football.
It is a pleasure to support world class Women’s Sports!
