Retenir les filles dans le sport et l'activité physique (français)
Date : 
À déterminer


Détails : Des études ont montré à plusieurs reprises que les filles et les femmes abandonnent le sport à un taux beaucoup plus élevé que les garçons. À l’adolescence, une fille sur trois abandonne le sport, contre seulement un garçon sur dix.  Au-delà de l’adolescence, les femmes de 19 à 31 ans font du sport deux fois moins souvent que les hommes.

Dans cet atelier virtual conçu pour les entraîneurs, les responsables des loisirs, les enseignants et les administrateurs du sport, les participants exploreront :

  • les facteurs essentiels pour soutenir les filles et les jeunes femmes en tant qu’athlètes et leaders, notamment les environnements d’entraînement, la prévention des blessures et les modèles de rôle;
  • comment concevoir de manière holistique des programmes répondant aux besoins psychosociaux des filles afin d’augmenter leur participation et leur rétention dans le sport et l’activité physique;
  • des recommandations pratiques pour appliquer les apprentissages dans différents environnements

Conférencier : Femmes canadiennes dans le sport

Speaker: Vicki Harber
About Vicki: Vicki is Professor Emeritus at the University of Alberta from the Faculty of Kinesiology, Sport & Recreation.  Currently she consults with Canada’s Sport for Life team to help advance physical literacy and long-term athlete development while improving the quality of sport across Canada. Experiences from 2 Olympic teams with Rowing Canada, researching the female athlete as an academic, coaching a girls’ soccer team and being a parent fuel her passion for this work. Vicki knows that much more than content knowledge is needed to bring quality sport to life in our country; it is essential to work collaboratively and build relationships grounded in trust and humility at all levels of leadership.  Her greatest joy comes from working with those who are willing to examine the “way things are done” and not afraid to do the right thing for the right reason.

A Courageous Conversation for Coaches

2020, August 19th 

This pandemic is asking a lot of us as human beings, and many of us are feeling uncertain and drained, even as we feel excited to begin to shift from lock-down to Return to Ringette.

As you consider how best to re-engage with the athletes you care about, you might be asking yourself some of these questions:

● How have I been personally affected by COVID-19?

● How do I feel about returning to ringette?

● In what ways can I support my athletes to ensure they are physically, socially, and emotionally ready to return to ringette?

We are inviting ringette coaches from coast to coast to join us for a Courageous Conversation for Coaches.
