The Canadian Olympic Committee, Canadian Paralympic Committee, and Classroom Champions are proud to partner together to bring you Team Canada Champion Chats, a program that empowers millions of Canadian students to embrace and take on challenges, prioritize mental health, achieve goals, and ultimately, be a champion in their school, home, and community!
Team Canada Champion Chats incorporates three different four-week curriculums that each culminate in a massive, nation-wide live chat featuring Team Canada Olympic and Paralympic athletes sharing their journey and experiences.
Each Team Canada Champion Chat curriculum will focus on a theme that encourages a growth mindset in and out of the classroom. This will include a discussion around topics such as goal setting, perseverance, mental wellness, inclusion, and diversity.
The Canadian Olympic Committee (COC) is responsible for all aspects of Canada’s Involvement in the Olympic Movement. The COC’s Canadian Olympic School Program (COSP) seeks to create excitement for the Olympic Movement in the classroom and throughout the school.
