Aboriginal Sport Circle and Sport for Life launch Aboriginal Communities: Active for Life
Sport for Life Society – Aboriginal Sport Circle and the Sport for Life Society are proud to share with you a new resource for communities on this National Aboriginal Day.
Aboriginal Communities: Active for Life is a culturally-tailored resource that is designed for Aboriginal community members, such as parents, Elders, educators, recreation leaders, and coaches, who value physical activity and healthy living as a vehicle to the holistic development of both the individual and the community.
The nearly 40-page document and its accompanying workshop supports and empowers members of the communities who seek to develop quality sport and physical activity programs.
Over 260 sport and physical activity leaders from across the country contributed to the publication, which received financial support from the Government of Canada through Sport Canada, a branch of the Department of Canadian Heritage.
We would like to thank the many important partners who played a role in the development of the resource. In particular, Aboriginal Sport Circle and Sport for Life would like to acknowledge the Cowichan 2008 North American Indigenous Games Legacy, the Aboriginal Sport and Wellness Council of Ontario, and the Indigenous Sport, Physical Activity & Recreation Council for their contributions.
We hope you find this resource useful. Please share it widely to any of your networks who you think will benefit from this information. If you have any questions or concerns, email email@example.com.
Thank you very much,
Director of Operations & Special Projects, Sport for Life Society
