Sponsorship Opportunities

For this event to be successful, we are relying on the assistance of dozens of volunteers and the support of the business community. If you can help by contributing funds, goods or services, your business will benefit from improved visibility, and you will be recognized as a supporter of amateur sport in our community.

The Canada East Short Track Championship is intended to be the focal point for athlete preparation for speed skaters in the Training to Train stage of development. This event provides a meaningful, high profile and developmentally appropriate end of season competition that is a source of motivation and opportunity for recognition of the best developing skaters. This event serves as the primary introduction to national competitions where skaters represent their province or territory.

Skaters compete in single year, gender specific divisions of 16 skaters each. Girls from ages 11 to 14 and boys from ages 12 to 15 are eligible to compete. Each participating branch (Province or Territory) is eligible to send a minimum of two skaters to compete in each division.

We invite you to review the enclosed sponsorship package and consider selecting the sponsorship level that is most appropriate for your business. If you do not wish to make a donation within a Sponsorship Class, we would gratefully accept any contribution that you are able to provide.

There has been unprecedented worldwide interest in speed skating generated in recent years. This interest in Canada is fuelled by our phenomenal success in the international arena including Olympic games and World Cup successes. Canada has proven to the world that it can, and does dominate this exciting sport. In order to further promote the event and showcase speed skating athletes, we will be inviting Olympic and World Cup athletes to participate in the many events throughout the weekend providing both competitors and fans with an opportunity to meet these successful athletes. Their attendance will help to raise the visibility of the event and increase PR opportunities.

We are confident that this event will attract a large contingent of spectators and participants. We need your help to make this event a success. Please plan to be part of the excitement, and show your support for our young athletes by making a commitment soon. Please contact us at sponsorship@cest2017.ca.
