Sport Calgary CEO: Celebrating Our World-Class Sports City

Celebrating Our World-Class Sports City

Sport is in Calgary’s blood. It brings us closer together, and unites us. We love to play, spectate, train, compete, cheer and celebrate sport.

We live and breathe sport. Calgary has a wealth of facilities and programs that provide affordable multi-sport access to accommodate the active lifestyles of our diverse population.

A proven economic driver, sport and its beneficial impact on families and communities has been proven over and over again.

We are an Olympic city that is comfortable on national and international stages. We should all be proud of our athletes’ accomplishments in Pyeongchang. As part of our Olympic legacy, Calgary is also home to various prominent sport organizations, such as Hockey Canada, Canadian Sport Institute Calgary, WinSport, Canada’s Sport Hall of Fame and the University of Calgary’s faculty of kinesiology.
