INS Québec launches its mentorship support program for high-performance coaches
Quebec’s sports federations will be able to receive support from Institut national du sport du Québec (INS Québec) to implement development activities through mentoring. Thanks to the Government of Quebec’s $50,000 investment, the pilot project will allow coaches from five different sports to participate in the support program over the next year. This program is coordinated by INS Québec and is aimed at fostering the professional development of coaches who are in the process of or likely to hold head coach positions on national teams.
According to Marc Schryburt, Vice-President, Performance at INS Québec, “These mentorship activities are designed to drive coaches who are about to ascend to positions on national teams,” he explains. “By fostering the transfer of knowledge between mentors and mentorees, we also ensure that the next generation of head coaches are highly qualified.” »
