Kennedy and McNeil – Commentary on Responsible Coaching Movement

Monsters roam the earth, and Larry Nassar was a monster. The doctor for USA Gymnastics and Michigan State University was sent to prison for the rest of his life on Wednesday for molesting hundreds of girls, and 156 of them stood in the Michigan courtroom to give victim impact statements, and stare the monster down. Every one was a shattering example of damage, of strength, of courage. MORE

Sheldon Kennedy, Co-Founder of Respect Group, will be the guest speaker at the WolfPack’s fourth Annual Scholarship Breakfast on Thursday, September 28th, and he will host a special screening of the documentary Swift Current the evening before.

Kennedy commented: “I think these events give Respect Group and TRU an opportunity to show collective leadership within the University sports community. Beyond that, I think it sets the stage for Kamloops to demonstrate to other Canadian cities why being the Tournament Capital of Canada comes with a responsibility to really be the best.” Ken Olynyk, Director of Athletics and Recreation said “Having Respect Group (Sheldon Kennedy) come on as a sponsor for the men’s soccer nationals speaks volumes about the connection and importance of the work that is so imperative in sport, the workplace and our community.  I know Sheldon will have a great message for our WolfPack Scholarship Breakfast and truly understands the connection between sport and life.” The USport Men’s Soccer Nationals will be hosted by TRU at Hillside Stadium November 9-12th.  Information on that event and the 4th annual WolfPack Scholarship breakfast are available on the TRU website: www.gowolftpack.tru.ca
