The Indigenous Long-Term Participant Development Pathway resource and Supporting Indigenous Participation workshop is designed to help sport and physical activity leaders and organizations across Canada enhance their understanding about how to support Indigenous participants and athletes in their programming.

The workshop will spend time developing an appreciation of Indigenous culture, and how that culture plays out in terms of engagement and sustained participation through the sport system. It will outline the key elements that need to be considered when planning, developing, and implementing programs for and with Indigenous peoples and communities, including a focus on supporting the physical, mental, spiritual, and cultural needs of the individual to maximize their experience in sport and physical activity. The workshop will focus on how we can adjust the competition pathway and some of the policies within the system to ensure that we create a clearer pathway for Indigenous participants and athletes.

Physical Literacy 101: An Introduction to Physical Literacy
($600 CAD | 4hrs)

Physical activity is a lot more fun when you are physically literate. Now more than ever, physical literacy is being recognized as an important component of best practices in the sport, recreation, health and education sectors within Canada. Unfortunately, not everyone knows or understands what exactly physical literacy is.

The goal of the Physical Literacy 101 workshop is to cover a broad introduction to the concept of physical literacy. During this half-day workshop, you will take part in an interactive session that will help you to define what exactly physical literacy means, and how you can integrate its concepts to improve your programs. We will touch on the Physical Literacy Assessment for Youth (PLAY) Tools and show you how these can be used to track development of physical literacy skills to help participants improve where needed. You will leave with a solid understanding of what physical literacy is and knowledge of how you can encourage continual improvement and development of physical literacy skills across the lifespan

There are numerous opportunities and applications for these tools, including physical literacy awareness for parents and coaches, global and individual tracking of physical literacy, assessing the impact of your programs on physical literacy development and research applications.

Physical Literacy Movement Preparation
($600 CAD | 3hrs)

Physical Literacy Movement Preparation is an enhanced training program performed as a warm up before practices and games to enhance performance and durability.

Participants complete two e-learning modules in preparation for a mentor lead practical in person peer teaching session supported by instructional materials. This training will better prepare the participant to assist in the development of better movement skills in their athletes through a developing physical literacy approach.
