Free “Coaching Kids of All Abilities” online training
All kids deserve to have a positive sport experience, regardless of their level of ability.
Coaching Kids of All Abilities is a new online resource designed to provide coaches and leaders with tools and insight to create an inclusive sport environment, where all participants feel like they belong and bring value to the team.
Research shows the majority of those living with a disability do not participate in enough sport or exercise to achieve overall health benefits. Canadian Tire Jumpstart Charities partnered with leading Canadian accessibility organizations to help address this issue by developing the Coaching Kids of All Abilities resource.
Coaching Kids of All Abilities currently includes the following two online modules:
- “Welcoming All Abilities,” which focuses on creating an environment of inclusion for people of all abilities
- “Supporting Positive Behaviour,” which focuses on managing group behaviour when working with kids of all abilities
Register for free using code JSS4L-Z8Y3N5J until February 23, 2019.
After February 23, “Welcoming All Abilities” is $30 and “Supporting Positive Behaviour” is $15. A portion of the proceeds from each module goes towards Jumpstart and partners.
