Learning with Professionals

 

Many of Prospect’s clients are die hard fans of Calgary’s sports teams, especially the Stampeders!  It goes without saying that it’s an exciting day in Prospect’s Variety Sports program when one of our heroes comes to work with us! Rob Cote of the Calgary Stampeders spent the afternoon with Prospect clients, teaching us some of the fundamentals of football and talking about how an athlete lives a healthy life. We learned how to properly throw and catch a football, and what it takes to become a professional athlete. It was a good lesson for us to learn about all the employment skills Rob must develop and maintain in order to be a professional athlete.

Once Rob taught us, Prospect clients taught him one of the games we invented and play all the time! We ended the afternoon by challenging Rob to a race. We told him to have no mercy, in case one of us could come close to catching him. No surprise that Rob easily won.  We sure had fun trying though!

Prospect’s Variety Sports is a program that provides clients the opportunity to learn about and experience different sports. We work to promote positive attitudes, healthy relationships and healthy lifestyles while also developing essential skills that will assist our participants in accomplishing their personal and employment goals.

Thanks Rob for coming!
