This past weekend SIRC attended the 4th Annual Coaches Association of Ontario Coaches Conference – The Time Is Now. The conference was attended by almost 300 delegates from across Ontario and was held at the University of Guelph. SIRC participated in the trade show portion of the conference and Amanda Street-Bishop, Information Specialist at the SIRC Regional office in Toronto, presented a Professional Development Workshop on Competitive Intelligence for Sport Coaches.
The Workshop covered:
- Where to find the best coaching resources
- How to optimize your searching techniques, and,
- The easiest way to access Canada’s National Sport Library
The presentation was very well received with some participants following along on their own laptops. The session was interactive and included some great questions from the audience for the SportDiscus™ database on Lawn Bowling, Volleyball drills and how to motivate a team before a game.
Other sessions at the conference included:
- Understanding Your Coaching Style
- Developing Athleticism – The Foundation of Long-Term Sport Success
- Hot Topics in Sport Psychology
- Increasing Leadership Roles For Women
