!MPACT Student Leadership

Given the uncertainty around the ongoing public health situation and how long it will last, the ASAA has made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 !MPACT Student Leadership conference. This difficult decision was made in the interest of public health, and we look forward to hosting again in 2021. If you have already registered we will be in touch to discuss options.

Leadership Training for High School Student Sport Leaders and Advisors

The Alberta Schools’ Athletic Association is excited to announce the hosting of a student leadership initiative. The !MPACT Leadership Workshops are for high school student sports leaders and advisors and will address the topics of leadership, teamwork, sportsmanship, respect, and positive values. The goal of these workshops is to provide a forum for student athletes and adult leaders to discuss relevant topics in educational based athletics and activities. Through interactive group discussions, scenario situations and hands-on activities, student leaders should be able to go back to their schools and implement a plan of action. We believe this is a unique opportunity for you and your student athlete leaders to develop skills that can not only be used in the school setting but can also guide them in all their future endeavors throughout life. We would highly encourage you to take part in this opportunity and we look forward to getting your schools’ registration application.

The 2020 !MPACT Student Leadership Workshop will be held on May 4 & 5, 2020 at Olds College. Information Package now available HERE.
