What’s the difference between sport training and recreation training?

Sport training is designed for local sport clubs, provincial sport organizations and national sport organizations (i.e. baseball, basketball, soccer, hockey, tennis, gymnastics, rugby, etc.). Recreation training is for community recreation leaders teaching swim, skate, fitness, art, or day camps, typically associated with community centres.

What is a community space?

Our vision is that every individual on the autism spectrum is understood, accepted and supported in all community spaces. Canucks Autism Network considers a community space to include any organization that directly interacts with or provides services to the general public.

Community spaces to which we have provided training include: Rogers Arena, Science World, Vancouver Aquarium, City of Surrey & more.
