Quality participation is built from an athlete’s positive experiences in sport. Repeated and sustained exposure to quality experiences should contribute to lasting quality participation. Quality experience is built from six building blocks: belonging, autonomy, mastery, challenge, engagement, and meaning. In turn, these six building blocks must be supported with a proper foundation consisting of physical, program and social environments that are welcoming, accessible and supportive. Through this interactive workshop, attendees will 1. develop their understanding of quality participation in disability sport and its building blocks, 2. share practical strategies for creating a proper foundation to build quality experience, 3. formulate a personalized blueprint for creating quality experience, and 4. consider metrics of success.
Participants receive 1 NCCP PD Point
