Thank you to those who joined this year! The presentation videos will be made available in the coming weeks.
The SCRI 2021 theme was The Future of Sport Participation.
Coming out of an unpredictable and challenging year, this event focuses on what’s next for sport. By bringing together Canada’s thought-leadership, cutting-edge research and the desire for change, we can re-envision sport.
What does the future of sport participation look like? Research and life experiences have highlighted the tremendous benefits associated with sport, but they’ve also identified barriers, gaps and new opportunities. So, it’s our job to come together and make sport better by brainstorming solutions with a critical lens on what it means to be truly inclusive, network with well-respected researchers and learn from renowned keynote speakers and panelists.
This event gathers together the sport community, government and sport researchers to share their knowledge and expertise. It is your opportunity to share, discuss, and develop insight into sport participation research. At this year’s conference you can:
- Hear the latest sport participation research
- Visit poster displays and network
- Connect with national and international researchers
- Recruit researchers to assist with your own sport research endeavors
- Share your research gaps, topics of interest and what is keeping you up at night
- Attend workshops
An important part of this year’s event is the Canadian Sport Policy 3.0 Workshop. That workshop will assist with the renewal of the policy set to take place in 2023. The Canadian Sport Policy helps to guide key policy, program and funding decisions. If you are involved in anyway in the sport sector and have an interest in policy development, come ready to participate and embrace the future of sport with us. This session is designed to help set a renewed course for sport in Canada.

In Canada, Sport for Life’s long-term athlete development model (Balyi, Way, & Higgs, 2013), now known as Long-Term Development (LTD) in Sport and Physical Activity, has served as the guiding framework for national, provincial and territorial sport programming since 2005. However, multiple models of sport participation exist in the academic literature and around the world. For instance, the Developmental Model of Sport Participation (DMSP) (Côté, Baker, & Abernethy, 2007) is among the most commonly cited models in the research world. […]
