NCI Task 19 – Canadian Sport Systems

The workshop will involve a summary overview of the Canadian Sport System through the lens of the coach, in particular, a coach with the capacity to exercise leadership in the system. In an interactive format and with the intent to promote systemic change, the Task Group will consider ways to improve the sport system and society’s support for sport and coaching. Task participants should come with their own ideas about how to promote change and to contribute to making Canadian sport all that it ought to be. Coaches will leave the workshop with a greater appreciation for how to navigate the sport system, how to access resources in the system, and how to use their own skills and position to make sport better
