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!
This session will examine how the Alberta Sport Development Centres (Calgary and Capital Regions) have successfully implemented a sport science program across the diverse provincial sport system. Details will be shared on the strategic partnerships that have been established and why this program achieves outcomes related to both the Alberta Sport Plan and other provincial & national objectives. Shared experiences from both the ASDC’s and the PSA’s perspective, will highlight how these partnerships have been able to enhance the sport science services available to Alberta’s identified athletes and coaches. A short Q & A will end this session to provide other PSA’s with an opportunity to explore these types partnerships.
In this presentation, Richard will share how Nova Scotia’s “Get More from Sport” project came about. Richard will focus specifically on how Sport Nova Scotia took innovative steps to redefine collaboration between key PSO’s (Soccer Nova Scotia and Hockey Nova Scotia) and what role AFL played in this process.
Richard will then address how National organizations like Hockey and Baseball Canada, in collaboration with AFL engaged in leveraging the bold “Get More from Sport” campaign to further promote physical literacy and LTAD principles across Canada.
The purpose of this presentation is to spread wise practices to create a “new normal” for sport in Alberta by identifying and engaging the real decision makers and by working together for greatest impact.
