Jul 29 2014 - ANB Mentorship Camp Recap
As part of the 2014 ANB Mentorship Program the three apprentice coaches recently took part in a three day camp held in Saint
John from July 21st to 23rd.
The three coaches involved, Jennifer Butler (Bathurst), Wendy Randell (Moncton), and Kathleen Kiely (Fredericton), got to take
part in a number of on track sessions with HP Coach Jason Reindl and were also able discuss coaching related matters over meals
and during classroom sessions. While countless topics were discussed a few recurring themes included planning and periodization,
event technique, skill acquisition, strength training, nutrition, and mental skills.
“It was a jam packed, informative three days, with hands on activities at the track and gym, and great discussions on a great
variety of topics, both on and off the track! A very personalized , enriching and enjoyable three days!” - Jennifer Butler
"I highly recommend the ANB Mentorship Coaching Clinic for any coach as it is another avenue to learn and add more information
to your toolbox. Jason challenged us not only during the camp but also months leading up to it. I Learned a lot.” - Kathleen Kiely
“Taking part in the ANB mentorship program has been a great experience. Lots of opportunity to stretch and grow as a coach.
Thanks to Jason and ANB.” - Wendy Randell
“I could not be happier with how this first coaching camp went. All three of these coaches were focused on learning over
the three days. The amount of sharing and group discussion was purposeful and clear. Everyone came away excited to head back to their
coaching situations with new ideas. This was a great development for ANB,” said HP Coach Jason Reindl.
As part of the Mentorship Program the three apprentice coaches have one more task before the program wraps up.
This task will incorporate everything that has been discussed over the last 4 months requiring the coaches to set up their initial
plans for next year.

The Canadian Francophone Games are among the largest gatherings of Canada’s French speaking youth. In addition to encouraging hundreds of young people to exercise their talents in one of three sectors (arts, leadership and sports), the Games showcase cultural pride, self-confidence and leadership abilities in a friendly competitive setting. Since the first Games in 1999, no less than 20,000 people have been involved. Included: extraordinary encounters, an exciting francophone experience and a schedule rich in festivities.
The Canadian Francophone Games are a French Canadian Youth Federation initiative, supported financially by Heritage Canada.
The French Canadian Youth Federation relies on the partnership with an Organizing Committee (host city) to put in place the logistics and program for the event. The Games are held during the summer months every three years. A contingent of 1,200 participants and more than 750 volunteers, are expected for every Games.« Les athlètes de la province ont su encore une fois se surpasser », affirme Gabriel LeBlanc, directeur technique d’Athlétisme Nouveau-Brunswick. « Nous avions une équipe avec énormément de tallent et de profondeur, et les athlètes ont su performer au-delà de nos plus grandes attentes ».
