We all want our communities to be as 'livable' as possible. But what is that? It comes down to how living in a community makes you feel. That intangible that has you finding yourself saying, "Wow, isn't it great to live here?". Community sport helps build great, livable communities. It's the glue that binds them together! So how do we make it work and unleash its full value in the complex world we live in now?
Attend this workshop and find out how you can work with your community sport and municipal colleagues to make sport better for everyone in North Vancouver, and help maintain your community as a great place to live and for people to thrive.
This workshop is a chance for community sport organizations in North Vancouver to come together and explore how they can work together with North Vancouver Recreation & Culture to make sport across North Vancouver communities work for all. We'll learn tips and helpful advice from sport consultant Paul Varian of Capitis Consulting on how to run an effective community sport organization. Then we'll brainstorm as a group key issues affecting and impacting North Vancouver community sport today, including:
- The core principles behind long term athlete development how to keep people participating!
