The official conference program kicks off on the evening of Tuesday, May 2 with a keynote address and reception hosted by Hip Hop Public Health. Prior to this, we’re offering two full-day pre-conference workshop streams. The workshops are in addition to the conference program and come with an additional registration fee.
- At the New Yorker, join Sport for Life learning facilitator Chris Wright and our Senior Director of Physical Literacy Development, Drew Mitchell, for a dynamic 4-hour Quality Physical Literacy Experiences workshop. Participants will explore Universal Design principles to create, lead and assess quality physical literacy sessions. Stick around for the afternoon session, where Dean Kriellaars – one of the founders and world-renowned experts in physical literacy – will show delegates how to integrate circus arts into physical education, sport and recreation settings. That’s right, if you’ve ever fantasized about running away and joining the circus, this session is for you!

- At the University Settlement Center, we’ll be kicking off the morning with tumble play and martial arts with Pilo Stylin – Sport consultant with the Swedish Budo & Martial Arts Federation. This 90-minute session will explore Swedish Budo & martial arts activities that can be practically integrated into sport, physical education and after-school programs. Next, Ontario Equestrian will be showing participants how to bring equestrian to a gym near you. After this 90-minute interactive session, you’ll be able to teach children how to safely mount and dismount a horse without ever stepping foot into a barn! In the afternoon, join Asphalt Green for their 90-minute session and learn tips and techniques for making the most of short recess periods in hallways, classrooms, cafeterias and more. The workshop will be a hands-on, bodies-on overview of the organization’s Recess Enhancement Program.
