The 2017 Canada Summer Games program, launched in July 2015, gives selected coaches opportunities to participate at various identification and development camps between August 2015 and May 2017.

These coaches will help develop and recruit athletes that are eligible for the 2017 Canada Summer Games in Kenora, Ontario. Working with Technical Director, Mike Purcer, the coaches will analyze the progress of the team and help develop a 24 month athlete development program to ensure a successful Team Ontario. All coaches will work with the team until March 2017, when the final coaching staff of the 2017 Canada Summer Games will be named.
