The INS Québec honoured 46 newly retired athletes

On September 30th, the Institut national du sport du Québec (INS Québec) and the Ministry of Education and Higher Education highlighted the athletic career of the 46 Quebec athletes who announced their retirement in the last year.

Gathered at the Universel Hotel in Montreal, the athletes received their personalized hockey jersey, a small honour to our national sport, to highlight the transition toward their post career.

The athletes were also invited to use the services of the national program for development and total wellness Game Plan. Game plan’s main goal is not only to offer support and guidance to athletes at the very beginning of their career but also after their career by offering services in health, education, career development and skills development.

By paying tribute to them, we are not only recognizing the sacrifices, the doubts, the victories, the perseverance that make an athlete but we are also recognizing the emotions they make us feel.

Thank you!
