PAST NATIONAL CONFERENCE SUMMARY
Our National Conference is the highlight of the Professional Development Calendar, combining an opportunity to take up to 9 amazing workshops, 4 Leadership Training Program courses, as well as hear a motivating keynote address and take advantage of social and networking opportunities. The Conference ran April 25-27, 2019 in Canmore, AB.
At our Welcome Banquet, Jason Dorland and Robyn Meagher delivered a fantastic keynote. These two former Canadian Olympians shared their personal story and how it led them to coaching with the idea of love as a key intrinsic motivator for athletes. Their coaching methods highlighted putting the athlete in the driver's seat for their own developed and encouraged coaches to be 'small c' coaches instead of imposing themselves in a traditional coaching sense.
All of our Leadership Training Program courses are offered in partnership with our Exclusive Post-Secondary Education Partner, Grace College, who offers a Master's Degree in Athletic Administration using the LTP Courses as prerequisites. The Grace College program can be used across Canada for teacher salary increases based on years of education - and it is completely relevant to your role as Athletic Director!
