Canadian Sport for Life Summit - Messenger Training (Richard Way)
As the 100,000 Canadian Sport for Life Champions campaign continues we are looking at new ways to inspire individuals to take action in their community. At this year's CS4L National Summit we will be launching the CS4L Messenger Program. The Messenger Program involves Champions, such as yourself, presenting to individuals, organizations or groups in your community about Canadian Sport for Life.
At the Summit we will be hosting Messenger Training sessions, which will provide you with all the tools, tips and tricks on how to deliver effective presentations on CS4L and physical literacy.
The Messenger Training will allow all existing Champions to go out into their communities and drive change by inspiring new CS4L Champions! We envision these presentations being given at sport organization AGMs, Parent Advisory Council meetings as well as recreation registration days and any other gathering of parents in a sport or physical activity setting.
There will be four different presentations that you can use when presenting - a general CS4L presentation, a PowerPoint specific to physical literacy, and specialized presentations for both Team Sport and Individual Sport. We think that these sessions and tools will continue to build on the momentum behind CS4L and help all of us get the message out to the local community organizations, groups and clubs. We can't wait to share it with you!
