The Ottawa Sport Council is proud to release a pair of videos that summarize insight from its two most recent Sport Summits – Let’s Talk about Concussions (June 2017) and Grants Demystified (November 2017). The videos capture these valuable information sessions, hosted by subject matter experts in Ottawa.
As an organization that provides leadership to the local sport community, the Ottawa Sport Council works to provide accessible, pertinent educational resources. Our webinars have provided a relevant online resource, helping stakeholders add value to their respective sport programs by making them more inclusive, innovative, ethical and respectful. This new set of videos allows us to bring even more content to our audience, ensuring the values and teachings shared at our Sport Summits aren’t lost to those who couldn’t attend.
