The Canadian Sport for Life movement and use of long-term athlete development (LTAD) pathways are improving the delivery of sport and physical activity in Canada despite all the barriers. Learn more and gain strategies for tackling this topic!
Presented by Sydney Millar, join CAAWS on learning about the bumps, roadblocks, and dead ends that exist along the LTAD pathway for girls and young women, and gain strategies to overcome them. The webinar will be presented on March 24th at 1:00pm - 2:00pm EST.
Building on CAAWS's popular publication Actively Engaging Women and Girls: Addressing the Psycho-Social Factors, this webinar will identify a number of 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.
This session can be delivered as a 1 hour webinar, or in-person as a stand-alone event or as part of a conference, AGM or other gathering of sport and physical activity stakeholders. In-person delivery provides an opportunity to further discuss the issues, share local successes and challenges, and identify opportunities and next steps. Contact CAAWS about hosting a webinar for your organization or about facilitators in your region.
