Athletes' on Boards

Over the years, athletes have become increasingly involved at the decision making table and more specifically at the board level. Through invitation, election or appointment, athletes continue to join boards and high performance committees of numerous national and multi-sport organizations. AthletesCAN has recognized the need to develop a specific toolbox of leadership skills to ensure these athlete representatives are effective leaders for their sport.

Athletes on Boards is a web based leadership tool to help Canada’s athletes develop the expertise they need to be strategic leaders in the boardroom. This interactive, searchable online learning tool presents information in a user-friendly manner. From the technical to the tactical, all information is written in the athlete’s voice and can be found on the left menu and expanded to provide more details on each of the selected topics.

This information can be found as part of the Leadership Handbook
