SIRC and the Centre for Sport and Law announce partnership

The Sport Information Resource Centre (SIRC) and the Centre for Sport and Law (CSL) have joined forces to offer quality and relevant educational programming to Canadian sport administrators. Topics for the 2010 calendar year include practical and expert-driven advice on management issues including strength-based planning, risk management, dispute resolution, intellectual property, and social media.

“As SIRC continues to focus on connecting sport leaders with helpful and relevant resources, we are pleased to announce a partnership that will see us collaborating to provide professional development opportunities for sport leaders at our office in Ottawa and our new satellite location in Toronto,” said Debra Gassewitz, President and CEO of SIRC.

“We are thrilled to collaborate with SIRC in offering relevant and practical workshops and seminars that sport administrators can apply immediately as they manage issues, seize opportunities, and navigate their ever-changing and complex external environments,” stated Rachel Corbett, one of the founding partners of the CSL.

This partnership emerged out of the positive experience both organizations had when collaborating on two unique workshops in 2008 – “Preparing for Beijing: Are You Dispute Ready?” in April of that year, and “Not Your Normal Risk Management Workshop” in June. Registration for the 2010 workshops will begin in December and will be coordinated online via SIRC. The partnership will see four to six workshops offered per year at each location, on leading–edge topics relevant to sport administrators.
