Inspiring Canadians in the Classroom

CLOSURE - effective March 16, 2020

Effective March 16, 2020, we have closed our museum to the public until year-end. Though our physical museum is closed, Canada’s Sports Hall of Fame is committed to the integrity of our programming. We will continue to operate our online and outreach education programs as well as our community travelling exhibits when restrictions are lifted and it is safe to do so. Even though we are not able to gather in person at this time, the team at Canada’s Sports Hall of Fame will continue to look for new and innovative ways to connect, inform and inspire all Canadians in the coming months. Stay tuned!

It is our plan to offer Beyond the Win presentations and Virtual Visits starting this Fall to schools. Please email programs@cshof.ca for more info.

Virtual Visits are FREE education programs allowing students from across Canada to experience our rich sporting heritage from the comfort of their classroom. In only 45 minutes, students engage in a curriculum-aligned, interactive education program featuring a presenter in real time with videos, galleries, artefacts and more!

Our aim is to build Canada through sport by making the inspiring stories of Canada’s Sport + Spirit Champions™ accessible to students on a national scale. We want to provide youth with a values-based, educational experience, showing them that sport is a critical backbone for diversity, inclusion and accessibility.

Sports and the Canadian Champions

Values: Resilience, Courage, Integrity, Perseverance, Innovation, Determination

Explores innovations in sport through the stories of some of Canada’s top Olympic and Paralympic athletes, such as Tom Longboat (athletics), Beckie Scott (cross country skiing), Donovan Bailey (athletics) and the 1964 Bobsled Team (bobsleigh), and how these Hall of Famers are going “beyond their wins” to give back to their communities.


Sports and the Canadian Identity

Values: Courage, Determination, Focus, Passion

Explores the notion of identity by encouraging students to consider the role sport plays in defining who we are and what lessons we can learn from Canadian athletes throughout history. Featured Hall of Famers include Marilyn Bell (swimming), Silken Laumann (rowing), Abby Hoffman (ice hockey and athletics), and Maurice Richard (ice hockey).

Technology Requirements

  • Reliable internet connection (10 MB minimum).
  • Computer, projector, or monitor so your class can see the presentation.
