Toronto, Ontario – Ten Canadian high-performance coaches and their Olympic hopeful athletes have each received a $10,000 grant for coach development through Chevrolet’s Making Dreams Possible Program, while 51 community clubs each received a grant of $2,000 for coaching training and development activities.
The grant marks the fourth year of Chevrolet’s commitment to provide a competitive edge for Canadian athletes through coaching excellence, directly supporting more than 27,000 coaches and approximately 250,000 athletes in 183 communities across the country.
