1. Harassment in Sport blog series – Looking Ahead (Part 3)

CAAWS teamed up with the Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport, the Coaching Association of Canada and Sport Law & Strategy Group to bring sport leaders a blog series exploring the topic of harassment and bullying. It is the hope of these organizations that with this blog series, we can help stimulate conversations about what we want more of and create the space for the implementation of practical solutions that can have a significant impact on the cultural health of sport organizations.

The four part blog series will be published each month, as follows:
Part 1 – Harassment and Bullying – read Blog One: Looking Back
Part 2 – Learning from Best Practices: read Blog Two: Current State
Part 3 – Our Accountability: Blog Three: Looking Ahead
Part 4 – Your say: coming soon!

2. Coaching Girls blog series by Carla Robbins

Read the blog series by Carla Robbins regarding her findings and observations on coaching girls. The three-part series covers social connection in sport, how important role models are, and the role communication plays in a coach/athlete relationship.
Coaching Girls Part 1 – Understanding Female Athletes
Coaching Girls Part 2 – Role Models and Self-Talk
Coaching Girls Part 3 – Communication and Key Take-Aways

3. Actively Engaging Women and Girls: Addressing the Psycho-Social Factors

This resource was designed to increase opportunities for women and girls as both participants and leaders in the Canadian sport and physical activity system. It is a valuable resource for everyone involved in sport and physical activity, and it will support and guide those working with women and girls, so they engage in, and maintain healthy and active lifestyles.
