Indigenous Communities: Active for Life Workshops

The Indigenous Communities: Active for Life resource and accompanying full-day workshop were created through a national process involving Indigenous sport and physical activity leaders throughout Canada, with the purpose of establishing culturally tailored resources that inspires community leaders to deliver programs that promote the holistic development of their participants.

The resource and workshop support community leaders in the development of sustainable, quality sport and physical activity programs that build collaborative relationships, and re-engage their community members in active and healthy lifestyles.  Upon completion of the workshops, participants will have:

  • Tools, resources, and action plans to support the design and delivery of quality sport and physical activity programs in their community
  • An understanding of physical literacy, which is the development of movement skills, confidence, and motivation to be active for life
  • Ideas to support their participants’ physical, mental (emotional and intellectual), spiritual, and cultural needs
  • A certificate of workshop completion and 3 National Coaching Certification Program (NCCP) Professional Development (PD) points (if applicable)

Registration online is highly encouraged, https://sportforlife-sportpourlavie.ca/catalog_classroom_detail.php?courseid=20  although onsite registration welcome!  This is cost free and open to all that are 15+ in ages.  Please share and invite community leaders, coaches or youth mentors to this fun, interactive opportunity to gain insight on how to create a quality sport program in your school or community.
