One month to go until the CS4L Summit (Richard Way)
Happy New Year to you all! I hope you had a safe and happy holiday season. With the New Year rolling in we are less than a month away from the 2012 CS4L National Summit and the first ever World LTAD Symposium!
Remember, today is the last day to register and get the regular rate; don’t miss this opportunity! Today is also the last day to book your accommodation at the Hilton Lac-Leamy under the special Summit rates.
If you have already registered, don’t forget to log in to your registration account and choose your sessions to ensure availability.
We have some great panels lined up for the Summit this year including Leadership Team member Carolyn Trono moderating a session on Provincial/Territorial LTAD implementation. With the growth of the CS4L Movement we are seeing more and more P/TSOs creating implementation. In this session you will learn about effective strategies and next steps for some of the leading P/TSOs in the country.
The Train to Win panel, led by Dr. Stephen Norris, is always a highly attended session and we expect this year to be no different. With Scott Livingston from B2ten and Stephane Barrette from Cross Country Ski Canada, this panel will provide some cutting edge information about Canadian Train to Win programs.
Finally, with an international flair and a teaser into what you will find at the World LTAD Symposium, the Sport for Development panelists will discuss how they have use Sport for Life as a development tool around the world.
We are excited about this year’s Summit and look forward to the opportunity to learn and share the fantastic work that is being done across the country.
See you in a few weeks!
