Air North GOAL Fund

OVERVIEW

 

Air North, Yukon’s Airline, is pleased to announce the GOAL (Giving Our Athletes a Lift) Program. 

 

Under this program, Air North provides travel certificates to athletes who are members of a Sport Yukon Member Organization. Each travel certificate entitles the athlete to one

flight segment for the purpose of competing in a recognized sporting event outside of the territory, including competitions, training, try-outs, and tournaments. 

 

These travel certificates will be allocated to athletes at the choosing of Air North with consideration based on:

  • Caliber and/or significance of the event or training to the athlete’s sporting career

  • Other sources of funding available to the athlete

  • The athlete’s demonstrated commitment to:

    • Sport and healthy living

    • Community involvement

    • A yearly training program

 

INTAKE for this funding program generally occurs annually in August, so please check back later to apply.
