Next Wave Future Elites- June 2023 A hot summer day at Bluefield High School saw some of PEI’s premier young athletes come together to train and learn under one roof. The day started off with the athletes listening to a presentation from PEI’s own Sarah MacEachern, who spoke to them about the physical and mental resilience that it takes in order to represent Canada on a national level. Sarah represented Canada at the 18U World Championships for women’s ice hockey where her and her teammates would capture a gold medal.
The Future Elites were learned from: Meagan Ferguson, a mental performance consultant Colin MacAdam, UPEI’s track and field coach Nancy Fong, registered sport dietician Tara Costello, certificated mindfulness instructor Strength and Conditioning coaches - Nick Lund, Owen MacWilliams and Shawn Francis. Randy Goodman, physiotherapist and Athlete Health and Performance Director
The day was full of fun and laughs for all and it leaves us excited for our next opportunity to host PEI’s Next Wave Future Elites!
