Gilmore Junio will host the awards banquet, where we will celebrate the contributions and accomplishments of the 2017 Sport Recognition Award recipients and the 2016 Athlete and Team of the Year Award winners.
2016 was a banner year for women and sport in Canada, but statistics reveal that we are still far from having a sport system that is fair and equal for girls and women. Where do we go from here? This session will provide a review of the current landscape and the key factors that are informing CAAWS’s (Canadian Association for the Advancement of Women and Sport) vision as the leading voice for women and sport in Canada. Through discussion, participants will have a forum to explore the major themes and to provide input to the strategic direction for women and sport, both nationally and provincially. Participants will leave with greater insight into the landscape and opportunities to advance this topic in 2017 and beyond.
Before coaches can maintain their certification, they need to be certified! In the competency-based NCCP, coach conversion rates from “trained” to “certified” status continue to be a focus of the partnership. This session will look at sport examples of effectively preparing coaches with the required skills and knowledge to get evaluated. As an added bonus, see how the Locker VIP Reports can be used to support this process.
*Participating NCCP Certified Coaches and Coach Developers will receive 1 NCCP PD Point!
Join us for the Closing Luncheon as we celebrate the achievements of provincial Event Hosts and Alberta’s Olympian’s and ParaOlympians. Mark Tewksbury will host this event and will be sure to share his experiences and tell a few stories from Rio 2016! You won’t want to miss the closing of the 2017 Alberta Sport Leadership Conference!
