Canadian scholarship program connects with the Commonwealth

The southern African country of Botswana wants to up its game in the area of organized sport, and Brock University sport management student Michael Small has pitched in to help out. For four months last fall, Mr. Small worked as an intern with the Botswana National Olympic Committee and the Botswana Athletics Association, assisting the organizations to roll out their new training program for coaches. He booked venues, prepared budgets, organized catering and created post-session online surveys for participants. He also helped create a website for the athletics association and set up its Facebook and Twitter accounts.

“These initiatives help these nations use sports to address local concerns and broader social issues,” said Lisa Kikulis, an associate professor and chair of the department of sport management at Brock. “At the same time, they’re building the next generation of sports leaders.”
