Are you a former Canadian Hockey League or National Women’s Program player? Are you looking to kick-start a career in the sports industry? Apply for a 2014-15 Ed Chynoweth Internship now!
Hockey Canada, in partnership with the Calgary Foundation and the Canadian Hockey League, launched a new internship program in the 2011-12 season aimed specifically at alumni of the Canadian Hockey League, National Men’s Team Programs and National Women’s Team Programs who are pursuing careers in sports administration, communications, marketing or development.
The Ed Chynoweth Internships are made possible through a generous contribution from the Daryl K. Seaman Canadian Hockey Fund. The internship was established in 2011 following the passing of Ed Chynoweth, who served as the long-time president of the Western Hockey League and Canadian Hockey League. He was also a director of the CHL, team owner, pioneer, and one of the most influential men in junior ice hockey in Canada.
The internships are based out of the three CHL offices (Ontario Hockey League, Quebec Major Junior Hockey League and Western Hockey League), as well as Hockey Canada’s offices across the country. They are awarded annually to outstanding college or university graduates or current students who are pursuing a career in sports administration, marketing, communication or program development and have previously played in the Canadian Hockey League or within Hockey Canada’s national teams programs.
The three internships that the Canadian Hockey League and Hockey Canada are currently accepting applications for are:
Applications will be reviewed starting in August, with recipients to be named soon after and all internships set to start prior to November 2014, with completion scheduled for June 2015.
