We promote sport opportunities for Yukoners, from grassroots to elite levels, ensuring excellence at every junction
Creating a culture where everyone can thrive is a shared responsibility.
Safe and inclusive sport environments make sport rewarding and enriching for all. Safe Sport Training was developed to help anyone involved in sport to promote physical, psychological and social health in line with the Universal Code of Conduct to Prevent and Address Maltreatment in Sport.
Respect in Sport
Sport Yukon believes we must do all we can to ensure sport remains fun, safe and respectful for all participants.
We are committed to empowering our stakeholders with the skills to prevent bullying, abuse, harassment and discrimination.
Since there are varied circumstances in which a concussion can occur, it’s very important for coaches, parents, athletes, teachers and community leaders to be aware of the signs, symptoms, and what to do when a concussion occurs.
Sport Yukon is committed to increasing concussion education and awareness that will assist in gaining the knowledge and skills required to ensure the safety of athletes and participants.
National Coaching Certification
Coaches change lives.
Sport Yukon encourages you and other coaches, leaders and sports organization staff to regularly participate in professional development courses and activities, and update or upgrade your coaching credentials.
If you’re a coach you’re already making athletes and our community better. Earning your next credential will increase both your professional credibility and confidence.
Inclusion in Sport
Sport Yukon enhances opportunities for all Yukoners in their pursuit of excellence and their enjoyment of participation. We model pro-active behaviours and actions to ensure people from all backgrounds, ages and abilities feel welcome, respected and at home.
Being inclusive means we all follow best practices for what sport should and can be so everyone can get the most out of their participation.
