As a leader in delivering amateur and high performance sport to Calgarians, Repsol Sport Centre is proud to honour its athletes with a total of $16,250 this year, funded by The John Currie Amateur Sport Legacy Fund. Under careful deliberation and criteria examination, the LPSS Bursary Committee designated 18 amateur athletes to be recognized and financially rewarded for outstanding athletic achievement in support of their future training and competition goals. The honourees are a mix of Olympic hopefuls, veterans and up and comers, representing 8 sports. There are 5 men and 13 women ranging from 13 to 37 years. Further, 83% of the recipients train 19 hours a week or more, and proudly call Repsol Sport Centre their home.
We are very proud of our continued partnership with The Parks Foundation and their $55,000 in financial support under the Amateur Sport Grant committee that allowed further investment into our new Aquatic Digital Display Board. Our Sport Partner teams were so excited about it, we put together a fun thank you video to spread the cheers and acknowledge our partnership.
