You are making a difference in the lives of our youth. A successful sport development program will capture, retain, excite and empower our athletes.

Today's youth are faced with so many opportunities and demands for their time. Our role is to give them the options so that they can make the choices that will have a positive impact on their lives, family, community and society. This new multimedia publication, Athlete Pathways, brings together:

  • some of the best practices/programs
  • newest research and results from the field
  • highlights from competition reviews
  • guiding principles related to sport development.

Together we will learn and share ways to develop athlete pathways that achieve excellence, encourage retention and embody the true spirit of sport in Canada.
