    RESPECT IN SPORT FOR PARENTS
    One of the most common reasons coaches, manager and officials of all ages cite for leaving sport is unacceptable parent behaviour. The Respect in Sport Parent program, Canada's only online training and certification program, complements the Respect in Sport for Coaches/Activity Leaders. This program will help define a model of behaviour for all parents and create a more rewarding, safe and respectful environment for everyone involved.

    The 3-year research study conducted by Mount Royal University on the Respect in Sport Parent program tells a compelling story! Click HERE to view this video.

     

    LET'S MAKE SASKATCHEWAN THE MOST PLAYFUL PROVINCE!
    In celebration of Canada's 150th birthday, Saskatchewan in motion is teaming up with Sask Sport, Ministry for Parks, Culture & Sport, Saskatchewan Parks & Recreation Association (SPRA), and the Community Initiatives Fund (CIF) to get Saskatchewanians moving with the ParticipACTION 150 Play List.

    Canada's 150th birthday is an opportunity to celebrate all that makes us Canadian, and being physically active is an essential part of that collective identity. From archery to lacrosse, to wrestling and curling, sport activities have always been integral to everyday life in Canada. The ParticipACTION 150 Play List is the ultimate list of 150 physical activities that make us Canadian. The top 150 activities will be selected by Canadians, and Canadians will be encouraged to participate in as many of the 150 activities as possible in 2017! Voting closes on December 9th. VOTE NOW!

    Let's ensure that Saskatchewan's sport activities are on the list!
