Session Descriptions:

The theme for this year's Conference is Safe & Inclusive Sport Community Today for a Healthier Tomorrow -- the Okanagan Sport Leadership Conference (OSLC) is designed to provide sport education opportunities and hands-on training experiences. More specifically, the Conference is targeted to:

  • Coaches and Officials at all levels who are seeking innovative training and motivation techniques and want to help their athletes meet their sporting goals;
  • Sport Administrators who are looking for new approaches and strategies for club development and want more for their sport organization;
  • Sport Practitioners (including CFES, BCRPA and CSEP Members) who are searching for “cutting-edge” professional development opportunities and community resource tools.
  • Sport Parents at all levels who are striving to do what is best for you and your child – learning about LTAD, and understanding how Physical Literacy prepares athletes for excellence in sport, while increasing the likelihood of staying active for life.

Keynote Speaker: Jennifer Heil
