    Canada’s largest conference for coaches, sport administrators, and their peers, the Coaching Association of Canada’s Petro-Canada Sport Leadership sportif Conference, is returning to Ottawa this year and Stephanie and I are delighted to be hosting the event! 
     
    As Paralympic swimming medallists we’ve both had our fair share of exposure to the crucial role Canada’s coaches and sport leaders play in ensuring that we, and our fellow athletes, have fun, stay fit, compete, and succeed. We’re thrilled to have the chance to share three days with all of you at the Westin hotel in Ottawa where we’ll hear from inspiring minds both inside and outside the sport community working to impact Sport Leadership NOW!
     
    As hosts, we’ve had the privilege of a sneak peek at the schedule and you definitely are not going to want to miss out. We don’t want to let too much out of the bag, but we are personally looking forward to the opportunity of putting some of Canada’s best coaches and leaders in the hot seat as the fan-favourite national team coaches panels return to the conference for the second year.
     
    Our friends at Ottawa Tourism are equally excited to welcome you to Ottawa. As the capital of Canada, the city takes its role of representing the country seriously and you’ll see parts of our country from coast to coast to coast on display in national museums and galleries. You’ll be wowed by the city’s culinary scene and vibrant neighbourhoods, from the ByWard Market district to the hip Wellington West district to the great shopping along Bank Street in the Glebe neighbourhood to the sights and sounds of Ottawa’s Chinatown.
     
    Online registration opens in July (details coming soon) and hotel accommodations can now be booked. All information is available at coach.ca/sportleadership.
     
    We’ll be sure to stay in touch with all the latest information on speakers, who is coming, when registration is open, and any other information we can get our hands on in the lead up to the conference. Be sure to follow @CAC_ACE and www.facebook.com/coach.ca  for information about the conference and coaching in Canada.
     
    We look forward to seeing you in Ottawa!
