Supporting the Goals and Dreams of Amateur Athletes.


About      Bursary Recipients    Application       Support


The John Currie Amateur Sport Legacy Fund, supporting the goals and dreams of amateur athletes, awards bursaries annually to athletes with financial need, who train in Calgary.

In 1983, Calgary hosted its largest amateur sport competition, the Western Canada Summer Games, at the Repsol Sport Centre, the flagship facility of the Games. At the conclusion of the successful event, the Games established a Legacy Fund of $250,000 with Repsol Sport Centre to support amateur athletes and amateur sport.

Inspired by this commitment to amateur sport, Repsol Sport Centre raised funds from generous donors to increase the value of the Legacy Fund to $1 million, and named the fund in honor of John Currie, community champion and President of the 1983 Western Canada Summer Games.

The Legacy Fund plays a vital role in supporting talented, high performance athletes in their competitive journey, and every bursary award has an incredible impact on our athletes, creating new opportunities for sport excellence.
