Chino Argueta is the Sports Coordinator for the Spence Neighbourhood Association (SNA). Chino is a newcomer to Canada from Guatemala since 2005.  In the last year of his university studies, he did a far-reaching research study in the use of sports as a tool for conflict transformation and trauma healing.  Through his work at SNA, Chino has witnessed first hand that sports provide athletes with an opportunity to participate and learn basic skill development, sportsmanship, teamwork, and leadership.  These life skills not only provide them with an opportunity to succeed on the court or the field, but in their personal lives as well.
