Conversation Matters: You Ask, We Share!

Date: June 3, 2020

Time: 10:00 a.m. MT

The Sport Law & Strategy Group (SLSG) has launched Conversation Matters: You Ask, We Share! free online sessions with real time advice for sport leaders from SLSG Partners Steven Indig and Dina Bell-Laroche. The intention is to give back to the sport community that SLSG has been serving since 1992 by providing effective measures to deal with what might be keeping them up at night. In light of current world events, this week’s conversation will remain flexible, based on questions from participants, and hopefully leave sport leaders feeling informed and inspired to put in place measures to manage COVID-19.

Physical Literacy in a COVID-19 Time

Date: June 3, 2020

Time: 2:00 p.m. MT

It has pushed many activities “online”, which has privileged some forms of human engagement (e.g., virtual meetings) over others (e.g., playing, sport, personal training, manual therapies like chiropractic, massage and physical rehabilitation) during this time. This has exposed many vulnerabilities to the way we do business in fields such as sport, recreation, exercise and medicine. Those fields that can adapt, survive; while those that cannot, are in jeopardy. What does physical literacy practice look like in a COVID-19-disrupted world? Can we adapt?
