CS4L Communities - 2013 Pre-Summit
~ Co-hosted with CPRA
It was an incredible day full of passionate, dedicated and informed CS4L Champions from across Canada. Based on the energy, creativity and productivity in the room, there is no doubt that the CS4L movement is taking hold in communities throughout our nation. With continued collaboration we will achieve our goals of healthier communities, connected citizens and physically literate youth. We look forward to continuing to support your efforts and learning from your challenges and successes.
Below is a testimonial from Cindy Crapper, Recreation Services Coordinator for Sport for Life with the City of Vancouver:
"As a delegate from the Conference, it was inspiring to be around so many Canadians who are talking the same language. Those conversations seem to spark/ignite motivation and passion levels as other delegates too want to make a positive contribution using the CS4L model together, as a nation collectively, creating one vision, one system, one country.
The pre-Conference session could be described as the CS4L Leadership Team, gathering our voices from Recreation, Sport, Health and Education, and organically evolving the system in the root of our neighbourhoods. Instantly, I felt a great sense of gratitude for the Vancouver Sport Strategy, the Sport Network and the VSN Physical Literacy Advisory Team who have been working on a Neighbourhood Activation Plan in two neighbourhoods in Vancouver. I couldn't wait to come back to Vancouver and share the new documents: "Becoming a Canadian Sport for Life Community: Building an Activation Plan that works for your Community" and "Building enhanced collaboration between recreation and sport" with our Team. One more step closer to becoming a CS4L champion city and aligning our implementation of LTAD into Recreation with Sport, Health and Education -- teammates behind the driving forces at building an activation plan together to build active healthy families in our community. I can't help but mention, the riveting presentation 'I thee Rise' by John Herdman. Electrifying story with exceptional delivery was felt by all who were there.
Looking forward to the International Physical Literacy Conference in Banff, Alberta.
Thank you CS4L! It was very exciting to meet everyone in person. Lovely vibe from the whole crew!!"
