By participating in the 2018 Calgary Teachers’ Convention, WinSport hopes to provide insight into sport programming design and implementation through interactive and informative sessions. This one-day workshop will provide teachers, with the opportunity to experience two of WinSport’s “Learn To” programs, including WinSport’s latest thrust in the area of athletic development and sport science. The goal of each session is to contribute to teacher professional development but sharing fun and engaging sport programming ideas and options that can be brought back into the school setting and used to further build curriculum. The day’s events will also include a presentation on the Spirit of Sport and the LTAD (Long Term Athlete Development) model, both of which are central elements of WinSport’s programming. By participating in the 2018 Calgary Teachers’ Convention WinSport aims to engage all teachers in a unique, experiential day-long workshop at a legacy sport centre of excellence.  88 Canada Olympic Road S.W. Calgary, Alberta
