SIRC at the 2018 Sport for Life Canadian Summit
Wednesday, January 24, 2018 - 09:00
The Sport for Life (S4L) Summit will be taking place from January 23-25, 2018 at the Hilton Lac-Leamy hotel in Gatineau and brings together leaders to enhance the quality of sport and physical activity in Canada. Sport for Life recognizes that quality sport and physical literacy offer rich benefits to Canadian society through improved health, stronger communities, higher sporting achievement, and stronger national identity.
The 2018 Summit will feature more than 75 sessions with upwards of 100 presenters embracing this year’s theme of “Working Together”.
“If we want to give participants in sport and physical activity the best possible chance to succeed, then we must ensure collaboration within the sport system and across the recreation, education and health sectors. Partnership and working agreements are needed at all stages of development. Given multisport athletes are more likely to thrive later in their chosen sport, what are we doing to collaborate at the early stage?” - Sport for Life Canadian Summit
