Let’s Open the Doors Wider by expanding our thinking as leaders and seizing opportunities with energy and engagement.


Judy Riege is returning to the RCA National Conference to help us kick things off with a keynote session on Friday, ‘Better: Creators Wanted’. Judy will help set the stage for the rest of the conference, prompting us to lean in and learn so as a community we will work together to be better, with energy and through engagement. 

Cody Royle is joining us to deliver the keynote: ‘Coaches Are Performers, Too’, to inspire our coaches to approach their coaching with a performance mindset for themselves and how leaders can support coach development within their organization.   

During the ‘Future of Safe Sport’ keynote, Allison Forsyth will speak to the direction where Safe Sport is headed in Canada and what we can all do to be part of creating a safe and healthy environment for all participants.
