Being fortunate enough to be related to one of Canada's greatest athletes, Lionel Conacher, I was exposed to sports by my father at a very young age.
Lionel "The Big Train" Conacher participated in 5 professional sports during his career, NHL Hockey, CFL Football, Baseball, Lacrosse and Boxing. Lionel is a member of the Hockey Hall of Fame, Canadian Sports Hall of Fame, Canadian Football Hall of Fame and Canadian Lacrosse Hall of Fame. The Big Train was voted Canada's greatest athlete for the first half of the twentieth Century (1900-1950). He won 2 Stanley Cups with Chicago and Montreal and won the Grey Cup with the Toronto Argonauts. The Canadian Press gives the Lionel Conacher award annually to Canada's male athlete of the year which was awarded to Sydney Crosby in 2010.
In order to reach these levels of success takes more than just natural athletic ability. Lionel was absolutely committed and dedicated to his training and development while maintaining his passion for sports. It is these core values Conacher Athletics strives to instill in each and every athlete it trains. Once an athlete understands what it takes to "Be Great" their dreams can be realized.
I assure you that all of our staff possess these core values and know what it takes to "Be Great". I am very proud to be a Conacher and thankful for the opportunity to share in this exciting journey with your athlete.
