The TeamNL Chef Team will be hosting virtual presentations for anyone who has a personal interest in the 2022 Canada Games in Niagara. We ask that you please forward this information along to your athletes, parents & guardians, and team staff and encourage them to feel free to share the link to anyone they feel may wish to attend.

“A Day at the Games” will provide key information to participants and their families to gain an understanding of what it is like to be a part of our Team NL contingent. We will discuss a typical day at the Games as well as services available to the athletes. Canada Games is a unique experience and this information will allow our athletes to be best prepared when we land in Niagara Falls.

Out third and fourth sessions are scheduled via Zoom as follows, approximately (1hr.15 mins):

Space on the call may be limited but we will schedule additional sessions as the need arises. EVERY participant will have an opportunity to attend. We look forward to seeing as many of you as possible early July, 45 days to the games.
