In 2022, participants in a study conducted by the Research Centre for Gender Equity+ in Sport (E-Alliance) reported that:
“High performance management believes that the harder a coach is, the better we will become” E-Alliance 2022
“As long as we got results, our coaches and high performance directors could act with impunity” E-Alliance 2022
Regardless of where our athletes end up in our sport system, various issues affecting them are increasingly making headlines and contributing to the dropout of athletes. As coaches are not the only ones targeted, the need to consider parents, spectators and violence towards officials are added to the set of challenges that the sport system still faces today.
Do we all have the same understanding of fun in the lives of athletes in every developmental context? Do we speak the same language?
What if we reverse the beliefs, and sport is about having fun?
In this workshop, panelists will critically reflect on how to reverse these archaic traditions and enable athletes to meet their sport goals in a fun environment.
