This Spring League, we are launching a project to promote “sport for life”.  With the support of Sport for Life Canada, we will be communicating to you:

  • Our values for Spring League
  • How Spring League fits into long term athlete development, ensuring that players engage in appropriate activities and skills for their age and stage of development
  • The importance of learning how to stay active for life
  • How we can create a positive sport experience 

Throughout the season we will provide different opportunities to learn about these themes, including fact sheets, posters, newsletters, speakers and social media.  Click here for more information
