“What separates Sport Law from others is the people. As we engage with the team on a range of projects from legal counsel & guidance, to crisis communication advisement to policy development to strategy work, no matter what it is, we immediately feel like they have joined our team and have been part of us from the beginning. Sport Law understands sport, they understand sport organizations & the people who give so much of themselves to their sport. We are becoming a better National Sport Organization because we have an extended Rugby Canada’s team to include the team at Sport Law.”

Allen Vansen
Chief Executive Officer, Rugby Canada

“The CCES has benefited from a range of SLSG services over many years. In working with SLSG on the co-creation of resources, facilitation of workshops, exploration of legal issues as well as the development of policies we have found the SLSG team to be knowledgeable, professional, reliable, responsive and a pleasure to work with. They accurately scope the work to be done, establish realistic deadlines and deliver on time and within budget. The CCES would not hesitate to recommend the services of SLSG.”

Paul Melia
President and CEO, Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport

"The team at Sport Law worked with my teammates and I to figure out who we would become after our playing careers. They helped us find our identities and worked with us to become better versions of ourselves post our athletic careers. What you get with Sport Law is not people looking to fulfill a contract. They offer a human touch to help others figure out who they are and how they can fulfill their dreams. When you have people who can step up and be that guide for you, I'm telling you that's priceless … and that's exactly what they did for us. Sport Law helped us with our first step and the direction we needed to go, and we'll be forever indebted to them for that."

Karina Leblanc
Olympian and Head of Women’s Football, CONCACAF

"Ongoing and umpteen collaboration opportunities with the team at Sport Law has enabled us as an organization to unlock tremendous capacity in multiple areas of our governance and our operations.  From their insights into complex legal situations, to their ability to help us lead in areas of coaching and cultural transformation, their team of accomplished professionals has been an invaluable resource for Ringette Canada."

Natasha Johnston
Executive Director, Ringette Canada

“We have worked with Sport Law for over a decade and have come to rely on them for all of our legal needs. Over time we have grown to use their expanding services in the areas of communications, integral coaching, crisis management, and so much more. When the Danforth shooting occurred a few years back and one of our young athletes was killed, we turned immediately to our friends at Sport Law to help us through our darkest of days. They were our companions throughout the entire ordeal helping us communicate to our members, support the clubs, connect with the affected families and ensure we were able to work through this as a small and connected organization. I don’t know how we would have made it through that time without the support from our friends at Sport Law. They are now an integral part of our team and we rely on them for support on all kinds of projects. It’s comforting to know we can turn to trusted partners like Sport Law to do great work and who do so with a sense of humility, humanity and humour. It’s a tremendous partnership that we are really proud of.”

Virtual Sport Leaders Retreat: Fall 2022

-

Due to the demand for customized and sport-specific leadership development training for sport leaders, Sport Law will be offering two Virtual Sport Leaders Retreats this fall. Since 2017, dozens of sport leaders have taken this leadership training and have expressed their appreciation for the transformative impact it has had on them personally and professionally.

In the words of Jodie Bierko, National High-Performance Skating Coach and Certified Integral Professional Coach, “the Sport Leaders Retreat had a transformative impact on me by providing a high trust environment for personal and professional growth while offering a unique setting to connect with other likeminded sport leaders across the country. This also allowed me to hit the reset button with a good reminder to slow down and utilize my strengths, and how to communicate effectively with a mindful, more wholehearted approach. It is a powerful and highly valuable sport leadership program.”

Administrators Edition – October 7 - December 2, 2022

Coaches and Technical Leaders EditionOctober 13 - December 15, 2022

Both will incorporate relevant teachings to expand participants’ understanding of leading and coaching in the 21st century. This virtual design will allow you to integrate the teachings in a more practical and pace-sensitive manner.

Leaders will:

  • Increase self-awareness through the NOVA Profile Assessment Tool. Create a new way to be in relationship with yourself, your co-workers and staff and the people in your life.
  • Identify a leadership topic that you want to explore more intentionally and formalize this through a coaching program, with metaphors to support your transformation.
  • Become deeply attuned and aligned to your personal values, purpose, and the work you do, to more effectively create and lead your teams. Build emotional intelligence and the capacity to lead with authenticity and heart.
  • Participate in group discussions during our virtual leadership huddles and walk away with practical tips that you can practice in between sessions.
  • Work through ‘real life’ situations and strengthen your understanding of the NOVA Profile in dyad conversations.
  • Learn how to communicate in a manner that respects your preferences and that of others.
  • Learn how to cultivate high-trust environments and find creative ways to bring people together.
  • Discuss diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging in the context of coaching the 21st-century athlete.
  • Identify and practice approaches to deal with conflict in a healthier and more inclusive manner.

The Experience: We’re looking for motivated individuals committed to positive change through sport … people who are longing for a better way to lead … people who want to bring elevated levels of consciousness into their work … and people who are ready to challenge outdated mindsets. We need to create brave spaces to help sport thrive. And we need brave leaders to join us. 

Dates:

There will be two One-on-One coaching sessions as well as five 4-hour group learning sessions.

Administrators Edition:
