Topic:

Are you Delivering Quality Sport?

Many coaches are still navigating the many facets of diversity as the learning continues for overall inclusion. We will explore the learnings in coaching a diverse group of athletes, which some may be indigenous in our sport clubs and groups. Michelle Webster from the Namgis First Nation, will walk through the culture, values and lifestyles of indigenous populations and how we can be the best coaches that provides a supportive environment for all.

Join us on May 9th and bring questions for open discussion! This is sure to be a great conversation!
