The New Brunswick Sports Hall of Fame and New Brunswick’s most accomplished athletes and sport builders inspire and excite youth to participate in sport. Youth inactivity is becoming an ever-increasing problem in our society. Left unchecked, it will lead to unprecedented levels of obesity and vast increases in chronic disease.


In response, the New Brunswick Sports Hall of Fame is making New Brunswick’s most accomplished athletes and sport builders available for visits to grade 6 classrooms around the province.


These FREE presentations feature the inspiring personal stories of the Sports Ambassadors on their road to success. They will talk about the obstacles they had to overcome and their achievements in the world of sport.

During their visit with a Sports Ambassador, students are invited to ask questions, to explore, and to reflect on what they are hearing.

 

The presentation is meant to achieve four goals, as follows:

  • Students will be inspired to participate in sport

  • Students will learn about the benefits of sport participation

  • Students will learn about provincial athletes and sport builders

  • Students will learn about the NB Sports Hall of Fame

Would you like one of our great ambassadors to come to inspire your student?​
