These casual lunch & learn events are a great opportunity for Coaches and Sport Administrators to learn from presenters in various fields and network with other coaches. We meet every 2 months, usually on the 2nd Thursday of the month. There is no fee to attend; however, if you'd like a bite to eat, that's on you.

STAND TOGETHER TO #ERASEBULLYING IN SPORT

A sport environment in which participants - athletes, coaches,volunteers, and officials - are exposed to negative experiences such as bullying can be harmful and cause individuals to quit. 55% of BC sports organizations surveyed know of athletes who have dropped out of #sport because of bullying. That’s why viaSport and the Government of B.C. have launched a new #ERASEbullying initiative for every provincial and local sport organization, and all B.C. citizens.

On February 22, 2017, the sport sector will celebrate the Province’s first Declaration of Commitment to erase bullying in sport across B.C. Learn more about this initiative and how you can get involved at as an organization or individual at www.viaSport.ca/erasebullying
