This is Ontario’s premier sport leadership event! Presented by the Coaches Association of Ontario (CAO) and the Canadian Sport Institute of Ontario (CSIO), the 2021 Ontario Coaches Conference welcomed over 1,600 delegates from all across Canada for this year’s virtual event.

The 2021 theme, ‘Shaping Tomorrow Today’, saw top experts from around the world including acclaimed authors, professional coaches, and sport science leaders coming together provide coaches with tangible takeaways for when sport returns again.
