FCA Sports celebrates Canada Day with ‘The Pro-Athlete Experience’

Sarah Chaudhery, Swayze Waters, Ryan Mulder, and Sean-Michael Stephen to encourage and empower student athletes at upcoming ‘Canada Day Together’ event

June 6, 2022

TORONTO — Fellowship of Christian Athletes Canada (FCA Sports) is proud to celebrate Canada Day by launching the highly anticipated “Pro-Athlete Experience” to the “Canada Day Together” event in Mississauga on July 1, 2022 from 2-7pm ET. The unique event offers a select number of student athletes ages ten-16 to spend one-on-one time with one of four former professional athletes and learn what it really means to go pro and play with purpose.

The athletes featured in the experience include Canadian Olympian Sarah Chaudhery, former Toronto Argonauts football player Swayze Waters, former pro-hockey player Ryan Mulder, and former pro-rugby player Sean-Michael Stephen.

FCA Sports Divisional Vice President Hans Ostrem stated, “This year we are launching something new as an addition to our FCA Sports Experience on Canada Day! FCA Sports partnered with Domino’s Pizza and asked these amazing four former pro-athletes to engage one-on-one with student athletes and share how they learned to play with purpose within their sport and lives. We believe that playing with purpose means knowing and understanding that God created every person for purpose. What an opportunity to have these professionals engage, equip and empower the next generation!”

The event last took place in 2019 — before the pandemic — and saw over 9,000 people participate in the Canada Day festivities. Now open to the public again, FCA Sports leadership expects more attendees than ever before, especially with this Pro-Athlete Experience.
