Sport NL launching Summit event in partnership with Sport Law and The Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport for Hope on the Horizon Tour

April 5, 2023 – In celebration of our 50th Anniversary, we are launching something special: The Sport NL Summit! Sport NL is pleased to be partnering with Sport Law and the Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport (CCES) to bring our members the Hope on the Horizon Tour, an extensive series of workshops – hosted in St. John’s and welcome to all!

In our premier year, the Sport NL Summit will launch on April 28-29, 2023 at the Sheraton Hotel Newfoundland. The Hope on the Horizon Tour workshops will focus on legal and leadership to increase the capacity of sport leaders to manage the complexities of leading an ethically driven and legally sound sport organization.

“What better way to celebrate our 50th Anniversary than by bringing those involved in sport at every level together by partnering with the Hope on the Horizon Tour to launch this event,” said Troy Croft, Executive Director, Sport Newfoundland and Labrador. “We believe it is important to offer quality programs, services, and training to our members and community leaders and when we learned about the opportunity to partner with Sport Law and Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport for this workshop series to come to St. John’s we jumped at the chance.”

The Hope on the Horizon Tour was conceived as part of Sport Law and the CCES’s commitment to meaningfully support the community that they have been a part of for over 30 years. In response to increased expectations on ethically managing and governing provincial, territorial and community sport organizations, these workshops will focus on supporting the leaders that are an instrumental part of the Canadian sport landscape.

“We believe that hope is the one thing that can change everything, which is why we have committed to launching the Hope on the Horizon Tour. We are so excited to bring this national initiative to St. John’s with Sport NL this month for a coordinated effort that connects, educates, and inspires leaders to modernize their business practices,” shared Steve Indig, Sport Law partner.

“The CCES believes in working collaboratively to address unethical behaviours and promoting a values-based approach that will ensure positive sport experiences for all. As part of our commitment to fostering safe and welcoming environments through True Sport, we are excited to support provincial and territorial sport leaders who are integral to making sport better.” said Karri Dawson, Executive Director, Values-Based Sport, CCES.
