CAAWS Celebration of Women & Sport


The Lead Thru Sport team attended the CAAWS Celebration of Women & Sport conference, which was a dynamic event to connect the past, the present and the future of women and sport.

An eclectic group of administrators, coaches, athletes, university students, academics, and more gathered to connect, brainstorm, inspire and commit to change. The conference consisted of breakout sessions, plenary presentations, exhibits, a panel discussion and networking opportunities.

Breakout Session Topics Included:

Keeping girls in sport

It was a wonderful day to connect, gain insight into the latest research, and learn about practical solutions for moving forward and advancing girls and women in sport!
