Supporting Canadian Athletes

AthletesCAN Leadership Handbook

AthletesCAN firmly believes that in order for athletes to achieve their ultimate potential in sport and impact within Canadian society, Athletes must exhibit leadership, be surrounded by a sport community that upholds fair play and transparency, and that there are effective mechanisms that harness and value the representation of the athlete voice in the decision making processes within Sport.

An interactive, media rich publication, the Athlete Leadership Handbook provides athletes and NSOs* with practical tools and resources for the development and support of athlete leadership, focusing on four mains areas of leadership:

  • AthletesCAN Overview
  • Sport System 101
  • Athletes Leadership and Representation
  • Athletes on Boards

*The Athlete Leadership handbook is designed to address athlete leadership development of athletes and NSOs at the LTAD Train to Compete and Train to Win stages.
