Canadian Sport for Life – A Sport Parents Guide
Our programs are based on Long Term Athlete Development and ensuring every member trains safely, and appropriately so they can be active for life and enjoy Sport For Life! We help our youngest athletes develop their physical literacy and the basic skills needed for almost all sports into athletes of all abilities from casual athlete to high performance. Lions Valley Athletics is inclusive, positive and provides a supportive environment for all of our athletes, including our Junior Members. We ask that all parents help maintain this environment that is conducive to your child’s success. Please Lead By Example and abide by the same Code of Conduct as your young athlete must ensuring a positive experience for everyone involved
