We are proud to be a national leader in providing autism training to the sport community

Sport

At Canucks Autism Network, we believe that positive change is achieved through shared knowledge, partnership and collective capacity.

At Canucks Autism Network we recognize that coaches are often overwhelmed when leading diverse groups of athletes in sport. We want to help your sport organization to feel confident welcoming a range of participants in your programs, including those who have autism and related diagnoses.

We can help your organization in a variety of ways, and will work with you to create a customized training program that will best suit your needs.

  • Training & Try-It Workshops

    Train your coaches, showcase your commitment to inclusion, and provide individuals with autism with the opportunity to try your sport.

    Training & Try-It events include a workshop for coaches to learn foundational skills followed by an opportunity to practice the newly acquired skills under the guidance and mentorship of the CAN team. Contact us today to create a customized event for your organization.

Online Training: Supporting Positive Behaviour

Are you a coach who is unsure of what to do when faced with athletes who have a hard time focusing, or are disengaged or disruptive? If so, this training module is for you!

Generously supported by Jumpstart, this module will help community coaches assist and include a range of children with invisible disabilities and behaviour challenges. Stay tuned for the online training module (COMING SOON!) which will help you become a more confident, successful and relaxed coach!
