Grants & Programs
Coaches Professional Development Day (Sask Sport Inc)
Mental health is an important issue, and is especially relevant in today's sport world. Stress, pressure and performance standards affect not only athletes but coaches as well, and can put strain on one's mental health and wellness levels. Taking time to prioritize the self and one's energy levels can have a significant impact on being able to ensure that mental well-being is properly addressed. This session is hosted by the Canadian Sport Centre Saskatchewan, and will:
  • examine issues that coaches experience that create stress and disruptions to mental wellness,
  • explore the different ways that mental wellness can be disrupted, and
  • identify tools and strategies that coaches can use to prioritize their mental health
