Sport Hosts

Our sport hosts enhance the user/visitor experience by providing an available and friendly presence to sport field and facility users. 

The Town Centre Stadium is a very popular sporting hub that welcomes a variety of user groups involved in sports like soccer, field hockey, lacrosse, football, and track & field.  The venue also provides a location for special events of all sizes.

Sport Hosts will help create a positive experience for all by answering questions at an information booth, and guiding users through the use of a park map and information sheet. This is a great opportunity to get involved with the Coquitlam Sport Community!

Email the Program Coordinator to get involved.
