A look back at Speed Skating Canada’s LTPAD implementation process from 2003 to present. Strategy and process for guiding organizational change and stakeholder buy in.
As Rally Cap became an immediate success after its first year of implementation, membership has requested a program to follow the steps of Rally Cap. This new program will be piloted in 2010 with the intention to roll out in 2011 and will be presented to the general public for the first time at this workshop. This presentation will also update you on other initiatives that have captured Baseball Canada’s attention over this past year as well as immediate impact on our sport.
While not all girls and women aspire to be elite athletes, sport participation can still play a valuable role in their lives. From tweens and teens to mothers to Senior Games participants...this session will discuss key issues and considerations relating to girls’ and women’s participation to enhance opportunities and engage this target group. Resources and tools available from CAAWS, the Canadian Association for the Advancement of Women and Sport and Physical Activity, will be shared.
This session will explain the different tools and mediums Synchro Canada has used different to make the LTAD understandable and accessible to as many coaches, parents and athletes as possible. It will focus on the development of the LTAD Stage-Specific Manuals and the LTAD Web Practice Planner and how both of these tools will help make the LTAD philosophy a seamless part of an athlete’s development.
CAPL is being pilot tested on 10-12 year old children in Ontario. There are 4 core domain areas, physical activity, fundamental motor skills, physical fitness, and knowledge, awareness and understanding. Results indicate that it is feasible to administer this new tool in the school setting and it is very well received from teachers, principals and students.
