Through support from the City of Kelowna, PacificSport Okanagan, and ValleyFirst (a division of First West Credit Union), the Community Sport Delivery Program (CSDP) has been created to support the staffing needs (i.e. Head Coach, Administrator) of Local Sport Organizations and assist in the delivery of local sport participation and performance initiatives. These paid positions will ensure the provision of a wide range of programs and services to athletes, coaches and volunteers from the grassroots to competitive levels that align with the Canadian Sport For Life (CS4L) Model.
Funds will be dispersed to Local Sport Organizations through a two-year funding cycle starting spring 2015. The intent of these funds is to provide seed money for new staff positions in order to build capacity within the local sport system. The Community Sport Delivery Program will be administered by PacificSport Okanagan, on behalf of the City of Kelowna.
