Q: Why the #FutureStars campaign?

A: In partnership with high schools from across the country, U SPORTS is able to showcase the best up-and-coming student-athletes in Canada each month through #FutureStars, highlighting incredible people, achievements and performances. There are thousands of stories to be told in Canadian high school athletics, and this program allows us to share them monthly.

Q: Can I select an athlete more than once?

A: Yes! Athletes can be selected multiple times, and will receive a digital certificate each time that they have been chosen as their school’s athlete of the month.

Q: What if an athlete of the month plays more than one sport?

A: For a multi-sport athlete, please choose the sport that best represents why they were selected as the athlete of the month. Any additional sports that they play can be added in the respective athletes’ bio section.

Q: Does U SPORTS promote the Athlete of the Month winners?

A: U SPORTS will feature the chosen winners on its national website, the #FutureStars site, as well as on all of its social media channels. Additionally, each winner will have a player page that is easy to share for the athlete, their school, family, and friends.
