The Athlete Development Matrix (ADM) provides a sport curriculum that will ideally lead to training processes that are intentionally designed to meet stage appropriate objectives. Assessment should provide evidence that athletes have improved in relation to identifiable objectives of LTAD and the ADM. This session will highlight meaningful competition as a vital form of assessment and evaluation of athlete outcomes, aligning competition with the sport curriculum (ADM) is a clear priority for LTAD.
Sport organizations and teams benefit from looking back and assessing their performance. If done properly it provides an opportunity to celebrate success, encourage the continuation of effective behavior and, possibly most importantly, address what is standing in the way of organizational goals. In this workshop participants will learn how effective assessment can take place in the world of sport where stakes are high, egos are in play and resources may (or may not) be limited. Learn how to create a simple framework that allows you to plan, grade and celebrate!
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.
Injury is a clear threat to quality sport programming and a lead factor in sport withdrawal for young people in Canada. Where, when, why and to whom injuries occur in recreational and high performance sport remains largely unknown. In the modern environment where basic technology allows instant sharing of information across the globe it is unacceptable that collectively we do not know a simple count of how many concussions, ACL, or broken arm injuries occur in organized sport programming in Canada. Further, the lack of granular information precludes organizations from implementing strategies to create safer pathways to performance and improve the overall experience of the athlete. Preventing injury is not about eliminating the fundamentals of the activities, but rather enhancing the strategic operation of the organization to provide the best possible outcome for athletes within the parameters of that activity. Measuring injury is the first step that leads to control and eventually to improvement. If you can’t measure injury, you can’t understand, control or improve it. This presentation will highlight a Canadian solution – Play Safe Injury Tracker – that leverages today’s technology to provide a free web-enabled platform for sport organizations to address the gaps described earlier. The online tool was developed through extensive multi-sector consultation and has been successful in tracking injury at multi-sport and single sport competitions. Together we can build a national injury surveillance strategy to enhance the Canadian sport system and drive quality experiences for all participants.
