These casual lunch & learn events are a great opportunity for Coaches and Sport Administrators to learn from presenters in various fields and network with other coaches. We meet every 2 months, usually on the 2nd Thursday of the month. There is no fee to attend; however, if you'd like a bite to eat, that's on you. We wish we could treat our community coaches to lunch every time we meet!
The results are in! The City of Kamloops conducted surveys in 2018 to create a Recreation Master Plan for the City of Kamloops. This important planning document will help guide the delivery of recreation services in the city and provide refreshed priorities for investment into facilities and programming.
Join us on Jan. 24th as Linda Stride, City of Kamloops Health & Sport Development Supervisor, takes us through the results that have been compiled by the consultants.
