Our Present and Future

 

Sport Yukon has evolved greatly since its inauguration in the 1970s and it's growing ever-still with the present and future in mind – all in an effort to serve the territory's sport community better. 

 

We are a small, but mighty, team of dedicated individuals working on behalf of athletes and sport organizations. Sport Yukon is a support system, a network of peers and professionals, and a resource for information and funding to maximize your capacity and further your goals. 

 

Our new vision includes us being the hub of sport in the Yukon – from information on programs and funding, to expertise in sport tourism and event bidding, to a proven channel of communication and advocacy with government, Sport Yukon is at the centre of it all.

Meet the Team 

 

It doesn’t matter that we’ve been around for decades. What matters most is what we do today.

The best way to serve our sport community is to have great people who love their jobs. 

Talent and skill go beyond balancing budgets, acquiring lists of certifications or organizing world-class events. We live and breathe what we do, and we have the injuries to prove it. We’re enthusiastic and take pride in doing the best we can do for Yukoners.
