Keepers of the Games: This film showcases Lacrosse. Lacrosse was born in Akwesasne Mohawk Territory as a sacred game, traditionally reserved for men. Just off the reservation at Salmon River High in Fort Covington, NY an all-Native girls lacrosse team comes together, seeking to be the first Native women’s team to bring home a Section Championship. But first, they will have to overcome their crosstown rivals, Massena High. As the season comes to a head, the team is faced with increasing ambivalence in their own community and the girls must prove that the game of lacrosse is their rightful inheritance. With more than just the championship on the line, the girls fight to blaze a new path for the next generation of Native women, while still honoring their people’s tradition in a changing world.


Kickstart: On September 12th, the Homeless World Cup will kick off in Amsterdam. Bringing together participants from 70 countries, the annual event puts a spotlight on global issues of poverty and homelessness. Street Soccer Canada, a non-profit that runs a network of over 20 soccer programs at shelters in a dozen cities across the country, has sent a team to the tournament each year since 2004. For the sheltered and homeless individuals who play, it’s a chance to be part of a team. And sometimes that small step is all it takes to get the ball rolling.

Physical Literacy Instructor Program

The Sport for Life Society, Coaching Association of Canada, and HIGH FIVE® have come together to support recreation leaders, coaches, and others in becoming a Physical Literacy Instructor. The Physical Literacy Instructor Program is a blended e-learning and in-person training experience that provides the opportunity for an individual to become a recognized Physical Literacy Instructor. The purpose of the four training modules is to equip front-line physical activity workers with the ability to design and deliver quality programs which effectively enhance the development of physical literacy. Upon completion of the Physical Literacy Instructor Program, participants will be able to recognize, use and implement quality physical activity programs which support the development of physical literacy.
