Ambassadeurs

Dskate Ambassadors Program

Beginning in 2019, Dskate is excited to introduce JDRF Canada as a proud supporting partner of the Dskate Ambassador Program. This new partnership will allow Dskate and JDRF the wonderful opportunity to offer graduating Dskate Hockey players and T1D mentors alike the opportunity to become Dskate Ambassadors.

Dskate prides itself on providing our players and families with an unparalleled experience and the best care and support possible. In order to achieve the leading standard of support for our #T1DHockey players, we aim to provide the young boys and girls of Dskate with age appropriate role models and mentors.

Bridging the gap between our on-site medical professionals and in a position to relate to the players, the Dskate Ambassadors are asked to embrace the opportunity to help guide the young boys and girls at Dskate through the highs and lows of gaining independence in managing their diabetes.

An extremely fulfilling experience, being a Dskate Ambassador allows young adults living with Type 1 diabetes the opportunity to give back and help their young T1D counterparts benefit from their experience, understanding and friendship.
