The True Sport LTAD Matrix identifies ethical literacy as a key component of the overall CS4L LTAD model. Sport is a valuable public asset, one that impacts the community as well as its citizens.
When sport is done right, these impacts have the potential to extend well beyond the commonly recognized health benefits associated with sport, including putting children and youth on a positive life course, building stronger and more inclusive communities, and contributing to economic and environmental sustainability. These benefits are realized when sport is good – when it is value-based and principles-driven. In Canada, we call good sport True Sport.
