Dage Minors handed Commonwealth Games intern role by BOA

New role: Dage Minors, who has been appointed as the Bermuda Olympic Association’s Commonwealth Games Federation eqUIP Intern

The Bermuda Olympic Association has announced that Dage Minors has been appointed as its Commonwealth Games Federation eqUIP Intern.

During this 12-month, part-time assignment, Minors will assist the BOA with special projects, general administration and other preparations for Bermuda’s participation in the 2022 Commonwealth Games in Birmingham, England.

The eqUIP internship programme was created and is funded by the Commonwealth Sport Foundation to assist Commonwealth Games associations to enhance their administrative and project management capacity through the temporary addition of personnel who have studied in a field related to sports administration at college/university, and who have an interest in the Olympic movement.

Minors holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Sport and Recreation Management, and a Master of Business Administration degree in Leadership from Franklin Pierce University.

The former elite Front Street Mile champion is a member of Bermuda’s athletics team, and was a six-times All-American and two-times Academic All-American in college.

He served as assistant athletics coach at Franklin Pierce, and previously interned with the Department of Youth, Sport and Recreation. Minors is also a paraeducator in the Ministry of Education.

“It is our pleasure to welcome Dage to the BOA as our Commonwealth Games eqUIP intern,” said Branwen Smith-King, the BOA’s secretary-general, who will be Minors’s direct report.

“With his educational background in sports administration, and his experience as a competitive track and field athlete, he will be a valuable addition to our staff as we work to prepare Team Bermuda for upcoming games, including Birmingham 2022.

“We’re extremely happy to have him on board, and we’re appreciative of the Commonwealth Games Foundation for creating and funding a programme that enables us to receive much needed administrative assistance, while helping provide valuable experience to young professionals in our community.”
