Sport For Life

Check out the latest SIRC Newsletter on Sport For Life!

Being healthy and active for life is something that Canadians truly care about and this is why we support the Canadian Sport for Life (CS4L) movement. We embrace terms such as physical literacy with its focus on learning fundamental movement and sport skills which build confidence and in turn encourage physical activity later in life. We must remember to keep sports and physical activity fun. Competing to win should come second to learning the skills of the game. Children should also be exposed to a variety of sports to keep their sporting experience enjoyable and to continue being active into adulthood. What Long Term Athlete Development (LTAD) is showing us is that a well planned practice, training, competition and recovery regime will ensure optimum development and promote a positive sport experience.
