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 on the autism spectrum 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? If so, this training module is for you!

In partnership with Canadian Tire Jumpstart, we launched the Supporting Positive Behaviour module, as part of the nation-wide Coaching Kids of All Abilities resource.

Supporting Positive Behaviour focuses on managing group behaviour when working with kids of all abilities, particularly those who struggle with engagement in team environments and may have challenging behaviour.
