Central Sport Seeks Input to Understand Inclusive and Accessible Sport Participation and Barriers in Red Deer

Aug 30, 2022

Categories: Blog Central Sport News

Central Sport wants to connect children ages 6-12 in Red Deer to more accessible and inclusive sports opportunities and resources.

From now until October 19, Red Deerians are asked to provide their input through community conversations and an online survey to help Central Sport understand how children and families access sport resources in Red Deer.

The community conversations and survey are part of Central Sport’s inclusivity and accessibility project aimed at opening sustainable, authentic, and meaningful conversations about making sport opportunities, resources, and equipment more accessible and inclusive for all children 6-12 and their families in Red Deer. The project is facilitated by Brandi Heather Consulting and funded in part by The City of Red Deer.

“We are committed to and recognize that to be an inclusive and accessible sport resource for all people in Red Deer, we need to engage, listen, and learn in collaboration with and connection to our community,” said Allan Ferchuk, Central Sport Chair. “We value the input from Red Deerians, which will help us to create more inclusive and accessible sport resources for children and their families in Red Deer.”

In addition to the survey, Central Sport will be reaching out to and encouraging conversations and meetings with, but not limited to, families, educators, community organizations, and caregivers.
