Legacy of the 2012 NCCWMA

The hosting of these games reflects an immediate return on the investment made to redevelop the Canada Games Stadium at UNBSJ. The stadium was a legacy of the 1985 Canada Summer Games in Saint John to which the NCCWMA 2012 will add a legacy of its own. Equipment: Most of the equipment used at the Canada Games Stadium is from 1985. It is very outdated and needs to be brought up to today's specifications and standards. This equipment is also used by all schools when hosting many local and provincial events. As a result, the new equipment will serve the youth/athletes of greater Saint John and the province. Specifically, investments will be made in: · Upgrades to high jump equipment · New pole vault mats · Computer/timing equipment for electronic photo finish and instant results reporting · Repairs and upgrades to hurdles & steeplechase equipment · Additional cage equipment for safety around throwing event areas · Competition grade shot puts, discus, hammers Facility Enhancements: With the renovation, the stadium is one of the best in Atlantic Canada. However, there are several items that will improve it and equip it properly for this international event as well as future regional and national events. These enhancements include: · Provision of an additional throwing event zone and associated cage equipment · Enclosure of the photo timing platform for better use during inclement weather · Addition of some video display terminals for results reporting · Improvements to the PA system The money invested by government and sponsors will ensure our stadium is equipped to meet the full needs of our sport and better serve other sports. It will make Saint John a leader in track and field. Officials Development: In the lead up to this event our club will be working to train more officials for track and field. Officials are critical to the success of this event and any future events hosted in Saint John. The 2012 NCCWMA is a key opportunity to expand our officiating base and upgrade current officials. Hosting Experience: Our community already has a long history of event hosting. Each time we host, we have the opportunity to strengthen those skills. With the NCCWMA we are building on the skills attained through our own experience of hosting the national masters in 2007. Many of our volunteers also bring experience from the 2010 Jeux de L'acadie. The skills and experience gained in 2012 will go on to assist us in future bids. Youth Development: A Youth Camp will be included in this event. Many of the top master athletes also coach and a select number of them will be invited to attend and assist at this camp. The organizers along with our provincial sport body, Athletics NB, will host the camp for the 3 days prior to NCCWMA 2012. This event will allow young athletes to improve in their sport and also help coaches to learn from other coaches. These youth will also be encouraged to stay on and volunteer at the event giving them an appreciation of the volunteer effort behind such an event. We see opportunities to reach out to neighborhoods of Saint John to offer this opportunity to some of our vulnerable youth. All of this will contribute to a great opportunity to teach our young athletes more about their sport. Promoting Wellness: Finally, the athletes who will attend this event span ages 35 and up. Many are top athletes for their age. Most of them will be here just to improve, set a personal best and share the fellowship of the sport with other active people. They exemplify the ideals of "sport for life". Having them in our community interacting with our youth along with the opportunity to promote participation in this event by Maritimers is a great chance to promote wellness and healthy living. The message will be simple. "Anyone can do this, so come and challenge yourself".
