Coaching Association of Canada

Registration for the 2020 Petro-Canada Sport Leadership sportif Conference is now closed! 

This year’s conference theme is Courage by Design. Through a series of engaging keynote presentations and breakout sessions, delegates will be motivated to consider how intentional acts of courage, inclusivity, and resilience can shape positive change in Canada’s sport community. SLS20 promises to:

  • Educate delegates through collaborative and quality breakout sessions with tangible takeaway skills;
  • Inspire delegates with topical and respected keynote speakers;
  • Unite colleagues from sport organizations and energize and broaden potential networks of interest; and
  • Recognize and celebrate Canada’s top coaches at the Petro-Canada Sport Leadership Awards Gala.

Our sport community encompasses daring leaders and courageous change makers. We witness thoughtful acts of inclusivity, resilience, self-care and collaboration, and these examples of deliberate action challenge us to rethink our own behaviours and assumptions.

For growth to continue we need to open ourselves to vulnerability. A more diverse and inclusive structure for all participants must be established at home, in our boardrooms, on our fields of play, and in our locker rooms. Through a series of engaging keynote presentations, breakout sessions and networking opportunities, delegates will be motivated to consider how their intentional acts of courage, inclusivity, and resilience can shape positive change.

Thank you to our sponsors for their support!

Like a phoenix rising from the ashes, so too will the sport system rise from the challenges it has faced this year.
