Besty was the Director of Olympic Affairs for the Canadian Olympic Committee for 9 Olympic Games. Between these 2 guys you can talk to who you need to talk to anywhere in the sport world. Jim Kyte for the professional aspect, and Besty for the National Sport Organization aspect.

That is how I got my internship, I got their contact info and set up a meeting. Some people in my class are with the 67's, Hockey Canada, Football Canada, Moss Mellien, Diving Canada, Rugby Canada, Soccer Canada, etc, etc. The list goes on and on.

Hope this helped a little bit!
Hey Thank you so much, I really appreciate it.

This really gave me a better insight, and direction as to what I would like to do.
I was just wondering what the requirements were to get into the sports management program at Algonquin. I was debating between doing my master's in sports management at UofO, or Algonquin. What program do you think is better?

Thanks,

Sounds like your doing really well for yourself, congrats and keep it up!
