OCTOBER 6th – Webinar Alert: Do Hard Things: Building Toughness & Resilience
Toughness has long been held as a fundamental key to achieving peak performance. We’ve been taught toughness means bulldozing through—pushing to the point of breakdown—and that showing any sign of weakness is failure. This model of toughness has long been glorified and celebrated. But the truth is, it doesn’t work. Steve Magness flips the script on what it means to be tough, pointing to new research that shows how our understanding of resilience—one that ignores discomfort—is wrong.
This webinar, taking place October 6 at 7:00 p.m. EST, is FREE to all Athletics Canada members.
OCTOBER 13th – Bison Transport Sport LeadHERship Series: She Makes the Call: Officials in Sport
In this first session of the Bison Transport Sport LeadHERship series, our panel will discuss how officiating is a great way to stay involved in sport beyond playing and coaching. We will speak with three female officials who all bring unique perspectives of their time spent officiating. Amy Martin is an official in elite hockey, refereeing at Hockey Canada and IIHF events. Jane Edstrom is an athletics official with decades of experience at the international and Olympic levels. Julianne Zussman’s love and dedication to rugby allowed her to transition from a high-level player to official, and has been reffing at the international and Olympic level since.
FREE LOCKER E-LEARNING – Relative Energy Deficiency in Sport
In this module, coaches will be provided with a basic working knowledge of how prolonged or severe low energy availability (LEA) can eventually lead to Relative Energy Deficiency in Sport (RED-S), including its predecessor the female athlete triad. By the end of the module, coaches should be able to understand the underlying mechanism of RED-S, common signs and symptoms, identify athletes who may be at risk for RED-S, and provide them with appropriate tools to manage and support them.
All of the information in this course is based on the peer-reviewed research found in the Resources section. Specific footnotes have not been used to increase readability. This eLearning should take approximately 1h of your time, depending on how deep you go into the resources provided. Certified coaches will receive 1 PD point upon completion.
This training will be available for FREE in the Coach.ca LOCKER until the end of the year. As of January 1st it will be available for $25.
