News & Advisories
Canada Games Park
Located adjacent to Brock University’s main campus and within walking distance from the Athletes Village, Canada Games Park (CGP) is the home to new state-of-the-art sport facilities in Niagara.
These facilities include the Walker Sports and Abilities Centre, consisting of two NHL-sized ice-boxes (one seating approximately 1200, the other about 200), a Sport Performance Centre (6,000 square feet), the Brock-Niagara Health & Well-Being Centre (10,000 square feet), a suspended 200m indoor track, sport offices (8,000 square feet), and a multipurpose fieldhouse featuring four (4) gymnasiums that can be configured into a centre court, containing approximately 700 telescoping permanent seats, and are all designed to be accessible for parasport.
Six competition beach volleyball courts, a cycling pavilion and storage facilities for outdoor sport equipment, and a 400m track-and-field facility are located outside of the Walker Sports and Abilities Centre.
After the 2022 Games, CGP will be open to the community and provide opportunities for all, regardless of age or physical ability. CGP will leave a lasting legacy for the community and has been built as a result of Niagara hosting the 2022 Canada Summer Games.
In recognition of a generous $3-million donation gifted by the Walker family, the 210,000 square foot sport-and-recreation building at CGP was named the Walker Sports and Abilities Centre, along with the north entry plaza, which is known as the Walker Founders Plaza.

Volleyball Canada is requiring that all individuals involved with the sport across the country take the new safe sport training module, available via the Coaching Association of Canada website.
As of April 1, 2020, anyone associated with a Sport Canada-funded organization must be trained on conduct to prevent and address maltreatment. This includes coaches, referees, parents of youth athletes, high-performance staff and contractors, officials; and all administrative staff and volunteers whether they may have direct contact with athletes or not.
Through the adoption of VC’s Pan Canadian Safe Sport policies, all Provincial/Territorial Association registered coaches, referees, staff/contract members and volunteers, are required to take approved Safe Sport Training. VC also currently mandates training for parents of Youth National Team Program athletes, however, PTA’s currently implement safe sport training requirements for parents of youth athletes in their province and it is not currently included in the Volleyball Registration System and is not a requirement for registration for National Championships.
The safe sport module is a free, 90 minute eLearning module that gives all participants the tools to recognize, address, and prevent maltreatment in sport. The module aligns with the principles of the Universal Code of Conduct to Prevent and Address Maltreatment in Sport and meets Sport Canada requirements for Safe Sport education.

All coaches, staff members, volunteers, referees, team staff members and Integrated Support Team (IST) members involved in VC domestic competitions are required to have completed a criminal record/police check issued within 36 months of the activity being attended. These requirements apply to all disciplines.
