A Message from the Executive Director
Sport Yukon has undergone significant organizational changes over the past few years, the positive impacts of which we are already seeing. We're better positioned to advocate on behalf of our members, provide meaningful supports, and champion sport in the Yukon.
This past year marked a sort of rebirth for sport in the Yukon. As we emerged from the global pandemic, our members could once again program to their full capacity, and our athletes were able once again to train and compete at home and abroad. Between three major games, a litany of regional and national competitions, and a general rebounding from COVID, it was clearer than ever that sport was back - but also that it needs our help. Our Members Meeting in November 2022 was both productive and illuminating, and allowed us to come together not only to identify issues, but to generate collaborative ideas to address the challenges faced by Yukon sport organizations.
For our part, Sport Yukon has engaged more actively in advocacy work, lobbying municipal and territorial governments to include sport stakeholders in capital planning processes to help address the facility shortage we face.
Our staff has expanded, now including a dedicated Sport Tourism Coordinator who has been hard at work establishing partnerships and resources to assist our members in mounting successful sport tourism events.
As we continue to grow and find new and better ways of supporting our members, we encourage you to reach out, engage with us, and contribute your ideas and perspectives about our direction and initiatives.
We're here for you!
