Indigenous peoples have often not been included in sport. There is a parallel sport system that is Indigenous-led and is for Indigenous participants. Appreciating the Indigenous sport system and understanding how the two systems can work together will be the focus of this session. Register here.

Financial barriers are a challenge to sport participation. Sport can be expensive and it is beyond the registration fees. This session will share some of the education, understanding and empathy needed in making sport welcoming and accessible to low-income families.
