Nike Grand Prix Track Event

Dec 21, 2011 | Uncategorized

Please note we are still accepting applications for girls’ teams only. The deadline has been extended to February 3, 2012.

School Sport Canada is presenting the first ever Nike Grand Prix, a track event in Toronto from May 10-13 involving students from all over Canada. This is not a national championship, but an opportunity for student-athletes from across Canada to gather together in a cultural, educational, and competitive forum.

Each province and territory in Canada is permitted to send one boys’ and one girls’ track and field team to this event. Each team will consist of 13 student-athletes and two coaches from the same school (smaller schools with less than 13 interested students may combine with another smaller school to form a team). Teams will have the opportunity to take part in a weekend of activities in Toronto that involve tourist attractions, educational panels, social activities, and a one-day track and field meet to showcase the student-athletes of Canada.

The Nike High School Grand Prix is open to students from Grades 10-12, and will be a one-of-a-kind experience commemorating school sport in Canada. The aim is to:

  • Inspire excellence in high school athletes
  • Unite student-athletes from across the nation
  • Celebrate the sport of track and field in Canada!

Teams will be chosen by a committee of educators based on leadership, school involvement, track and field experience, and their response to the following question: What does your team expect to learn from participating in the Nike Grand Prix and how will your team use the experience to positively impact your school and its track and field program?

Interested schools are asked to apply by February 3, 2012.
