TEN REASONS TO ATTEND THE 2017 PETRO-CANADA SPORT LEADERSHIP SPORTIF CONFERENCE

The Petro-Canada Sport Leadership sportif conference (#SLS17) is Canada’s conference for coaches, researchers, sport executives, and administrators. Organized by the Coaching Association of Canada, the annual conference consists of three days of learning, professional development, and networking with the top minds and leaders of the Canadian sport, business, and education communities. Here are 10 reasons to attend #SLS17, which takes place in Calgary from November 2-4 at the Westin Calgary. 

  1. The power of connecting. 500+ sport influencers will be in Calgary. See old friends, make new connections.
     
  2. Access to an international list of speakers, including Masamitsu Ito (Nippon Sport Science University), Kristen Dieffenbach (West Virginia University), and John Bales (ICCE).
     
  3. It’s time to celebrate! Cheer for Canada’s coaching stars at the Petro-Canada Sport Leadership Awards Gala!
     
  4. Improve quality sport opportunities for newcomers and underserved youth. Carolyn Trono and a panel will share insights and solutions of their ongoing journey in delivering quality sport to the Syrian refugee community and other newcomers in Winnipeg.
     
  5. Embrace disruptive innovation. At the 2017 Petro-Canada Sport Leadership sportif conference, speakers, delegates, and workshop participants will examine how we can harness and optimize opportunities to drive leadership growth and influence positive change in sport.
     
  6. Discover the latest coaching trends. Join some of Canada’s top coach education researchers to discuss how leading-edge studies can provide practical solutions to your coach education needs.
     
  7. Rethink learning. Trevor Ragan, founder of Train Ugly, sees a huge disconnect between what the science says and the way we teach and coach; it is his mission to change that.
