Canadian sport organizations looking to manage risks that can get in the way of providing support and resources to their athletes now have access to a free, online Canadian Sport Risk Registry. The Registry is a database of examples of real organizational risks and solutions identified by national sport organizations (NSOs). It also includes a step-by-step template to help organizations identify, work through, and manage different risks.
The goal of the Risk Registry database is to help sport leaders plan for risks that can distract them from achieving organizational goals and delivering the quality of sport Canadians expect. A list of sport-specific examples of risks (e.g., weak communication plans, staff turnover, or lack of depth and balance of sport performance across the country), along with suggestions on how to address those risks, is included. Sport leaders can access the online resource at www.truesportsecretariat.ca/en/riskregistry.
Sport has a positive impact on our lives and communities. It builds character, fosters civic pride and makes us healthier. Renewing the Alberta Sport Plan will help us all harness the power of sport.
The Ministry of Tourisn, Parks and Recreation wants to hear from stakeholders in Alberta sport. Today, they launched an online survey (available at AlbertaSportPlan.ca) to help better understand priorities for sport.
The online survey is the first step in a consultation to create an Alberta Sport Plan, which will shape the direction of sport in our province, help us make the best use of available resources, and help ensure we are coordinating our efforts.
ALBERTA SPORT PLAN
The power of sport in Alberta will not be achieved through government policy alone, rather through the engagement of all Albertans. The newly launched ALBERTA SPORT PLAN is being developed for Albertans, by Albertans - and you have a role to play. It's your call.
