Join us to learn about the bumps, roadblocks, and dead ends that exist along the LTAD pathway for girls and young women, and gain strategies to overcome them.

LTAD Considerations to Actively Engage Girls and Young Women
The Canadian Sport for Life movement and use of long-term athlete development (LTAD) pathways are improving the delivery of sport and physical activity in Canada. However, a number of bumps, roadblocks, and dead ends exist along the LTAD pathway for girls and young women. Building on CAAWS’ popular publication “Actively Engaging Women and Girls: Addressing the Psycho-Social Factors” , this session identifies a number of key issues central to supporting girls and young women as athletes and leaders, including training environments, injury prevention, role models, and “on- and off-ramps”. Practical recommendations will be provided for coaches, recreation leaders, teachers, and sport administrators.

This session can be delivered as a 1 hour webinar, or in-person as a stand-alone event or as part of a conference, AGM or other gathering of sport and physical activity stakeholders. In-person delivery provides an opportunity to further discuss the issues, share local successes and challenges, and identify opportunities and next steps.
