Aboriginal Coaching Module
- Published: February 11 2019 12:43
Modules for coaches of aboriginal athletes is a professional training tool designed for Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal coaches and leaders who work with Aboriginal athletes. The material in the MEAA has been developed to meet the following objectives:
• to understand the role of sport in Aboriginal communities;
• Understand and influence the community from which the athletes you train come from
• adopt a holistic approach to coaching that transcends the physical dimension of the person and
takes into account their mental (intellectual and emotional), spiritual and cultural dimensions;
• to respond to racism in sport;
• establish a code of conduct for your team that respects differences and addresses racism;
• to help young people adopt healthy lifestyle habits.
Recreational Trails Expansion Program
- Published: January 31 2019 14:28
Nova Scotia has always been a place rich in culture, heritage, sport and recreation. The trails in Nova Scotia contribute much to our quality of life. They enrich our communities and benefit our economy. By investing in trail development and expansion, we realize their tremendous value for Nova Scotians.
The Recreational Trail Expansion Grant Program 2019-2020 is now accepting applications. The program provides funding to community groups, municipalities, Mi’kmaq Band Councils, and ‘not-for- profit’ organizations to develop new trails, expand recreational trails, and perform capital upgrades to existing trails in order to increase opportunities for Nova Scotians to recreate in the outdoors and connect with nature.
The guidelines for the Recreational Trail Expansion Grant program can be found at https://cch.novascotia.ca/trail-funding-programs. The deadline to apply is March 26th, 2019.
