The training will be led by National Amateur Wrestling Champion and Alberta Provincial Wrestling Champion, Corey Robinson, who currently resides in Halifax, Nova Scotia.   Corey combines his passion for sport, as an elite athlete and coach, with his desire to give back to youth in his community and pass on his knowledge of public speaking and his experience of becoming a positive role model.

Once trained, these athletes have the opportunity to be part of a network of elite Youth Athlete Role Models inspiring thousands of youth across Canada.
