Upcoming Parkland Valley Workshops
Sports & Recreation: LGBTQ Identities, Myths & How to Create Inclusive Recreation Spaces & Programming
September 11, 2018
National Bank A, Gallagher Centre, Yorkton SK
Description: A recent survey of the Saskatchewan LGBT community found that the community was the most likely to agree that physical activity has a positive impact on mental health, yet 40% of respondents said that they have experienced discrimination in a recreational setting. This presentation will unpack LGBT identities and terminology along with addressing common myths that prevent physical education, recreation, and sport from being truly inclusive. The presentation will finish by highlighting best practices in procedures, policies, and language when aiming to make your workplace, community centre, or even simply a change room a more inclusive space.
This workshop is hosted in partnership with Community Development, Parks & Recreation.

It provides in depth training in the HIGH FIVE® principles of healthy child development so front-line leaders understand what they need to do to ensure each child’s social, emotional and cognitive needs are met.

HIGH FIVE® Quest training is for any supervisor who is responsible for quality assurance and support of programs offered to children in middle childhood. This workshop will provide practical training on the use of the quality assurance measurement tool to evaluate current children’s sport and recreation programs. Quantitative results from these assessments allow organizations to track their improvements in quality programming.

The purpose of this program is to train and mentor young people so that they can practice leading active play opportunities. Once they’ve completed Take the Lead! training, SPRA is confident that the Youth Leaders will have the ability to foster leadership skills within their schools and communities. They will provide more physical activity and active play opportunities for their peers and in the future they will be able to draw upon these skills as they reinvest in our communities.
