Kile Jones – Professional  Triathlete to be keynote speaker at the 10th Annual SPORT AWARDS Oct 22nd.

One of the biggest rewards of becoming an Olympian has been the opportunity to share my journey and encourage people young and old to set goals and follow their dreams.

Whenever I speak to a group I always make a point of emphasizing the need to not only dream big but to pursue it with determination and perseverance. Success doesn’t happen overnight and I think it’s very important to share with kids the amount of work required, the many ups and downs, the obstacles to overcome and sacrifices along the way. I want them to know that these bumps in the road are to be expected with such a big dream and they are, in a way, what makes achieving dreams so special.

Community Outreach Initiative

In the Spring of 2016 Sport Oakville commenced a Community Outreach Initiative with an objective to become more familiar with all the member associations’ programs. Secondly and equally important, Sport Oakville wanted to meet the administrators, coaches, volunteers and athletes and obtain a better insight on how well they are all making their respective sport an integral part of living within the community of Oakville.

In 2017 the Sport Oakville Community Outreach with the member associations will continue along in seeking out new non-profit sports organizations that wish to benefit from the programs (i.e. Sport Grants, Children’s Festival, Recognition Awards). In partnership with member associations and future partners the goal is to identify potential new program ideas and opportunities for growth and engagement.
