Wednesday August 12th: Leading the Way: LGBTQI2S Inclusion in Sport

12:00pm EST / 9:00 PST

This workshop provides sport leaders, including coaches, athletes, officials, with the opportunity to understand what LGBTQphobia is and how it can hurt their organization. From understanding lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, intersex and two spirit (LGBTQI2S) language and dealing with sensitive issues such as same-sex relationships amongst teammates, to reviewing policies and practices to ensure they are equitable, this session allows for an open and honest conversation about LGBTQphobia and the important role sport leaders, including coaches, can play in making sport more accepting of sexual and gender diversity.


Wednesday August 26th: Long Term Development Considerations to Actively Engage Women and Girls

12:00pm EST / 9:00 PST

The Canadian Sport for Life movement and use of long-term development (LTD) pathways are improving the delivery of sport and physical activity in Canada. However, many bumps, roadblocks, and dead ends exist along the LTD pathway for girls and young women. Discussion will focus on several key issues central to supporting girls and young women as athletes and leaders, including training environments, injury prevention, role models, and “on- and off-ramps”. Practical recommendations will be provided for coaches, recreation leaders, teachers, and sport administrators.


Wednesday September 14th: Influencing Change

12:00pm EST / 9:00 PST

Whether influencing change in your organization, across the sport and physical activity system, or more broadly in society, this workshop will provide participants with theory and practical tools for success.
