Hello From Halifax!

by Brandie Adams, SIRC Reference Librarian

The SIRC Mobile Resource Centre is up and running at Coach House in the Delta Barrington. Partnering with Coaches of Canada our goal is to connect with Canada Games coaches by providing a fantastic lounge for them to use over the next few weeks. To help make this happen Wayne Parro (Coaches of Canada) and Brandie Adams (SIRC) headed to the Chef de Mission meeting early this morning to raise awareness of Coach House and the resources they could access.

What is available at Coach House?
  • Coaching publications from FIT, Routledge, HK, CAAWS,
  • Meeting area (comfortable chairs, couches and tables)
  • Wireless!
  • Coaches of Canada information
  • TVs (follow what's happening around the world)
  • SIRC Reference Librarian to answer questions
  • Coaches of Canada speaker series (to be announced soon)
With Wayne or Brandie around there is often lively conversation. This afternoon we had a great chat with a NB Coach on continuing education programs for coaches in Canada. We hope that you stop by to visit the Coach House.
