Nike Made to Play Coach Summit Supports TBDMSA
Submitted By Kevin Boston on Thu 11 10, 22
Members, Coaches and Executive Members from youth sport organizations were treated to an exciting day hosted by Nike at the Made to Play Summit on November 4 in Toronto.  Several representatives from the Tottenham Beeton District Minor Softball Association (TBDMSA) attended to learn about how our organization can improve our inclusiveness, diversity and equity programs particularly aimed at keeping girls in sport.

The opportunity was made available as a result of a Same Game Challenge Grant received by the TBDMSA through Canada Women and Sport.  The TBDMSA is always looking for ways to support their Coaches with resources to help them succeed on and off the field.

"The Nike Made to Play Coach Summit was a well-executed event and completely exceeded my expectations,” explained TBDMSA volunteer and parent Brandy Cremascoli. “It was a high energy, interactive approach to teach coaches how to better lead and engage girls in sport.”

After a over two-year hiatus from any in-person training the Nike and host The Center for Healing and Justice through Sport (CHJS) coaches had people from across North America engage in training that left attendees with an arsenal of tips on how to increase the breadth of inclusivity in sport.  Tips included: how to create safe spaces, build team culture, choosing the right equipment, and how use appropriate language in difficult situations.

Brandy also said that she especially liked the saying from one of the CHJS coaches, "Boys compete to connect and girls connect to compete." This small yet powerful quote helped changed her perspective on one way to approach boys and girls in sport.
