Enhancing sport, recreation, parks and wildlife opportunities throughout Alberta.
We are the Alberta Sport, Recreation, Parks and Wildlife Foundation.
WE HAVE A NEW NAME
The Alberta Sport, Recreation, Parks and Wildlife Foundation is now officially operating as ‘Alberta Sport Connection”. The exciting new brand, obviously much shorter and more focussed, appears colourful and modern. The standalone icon, with the blue triangular ‘A’ , represents the sport development system from the broad base ‘grassroots’ up to the pinnacle, our world class athletes. Represented in green is a ‘S’, symbolic of a dynamic swirling sport community, and a ‘C’, which represents Connection, and our commitment to all partners in the sport delivery system.
With a revised mandate to focus on sport delivery, we have embarked on a process to develop a new vision: “ Alberta, the premier sport delivery system in Canada”; and a new mission statement:” To enhance, advocate, and inspire participation and partnerships as Albertans strive for excellence in sport”.
Look for the new logo when you are out at one of our upcoming events.
