Lead Like a Girl

August 9 to 11, 2022

Registration Opens June 1st

LEAD LIKE A GIRL is a 3-day experience for girls ages 11-13 built around leadership, life skills and athletics.

Leadership is a skill and like any skill it can be taught. We all have the ability to become better leaders and your daughter can begin right now! Girls 11-13 years old are eligible for this unique learning experience. For only $200 participants will learn from an Olympic Coach about the importance of leadership and how to improve as a leader. They will then be able to witness emerging leaders in action at the Niagara 2022 Canada Summer Games and will participate in fun skill training exercises. Your children will be able to learn valuable life skills while being given the once in a lifetime chance to watch and engage with the Canada Summer Games.


“LEAD LIKE A GIRL: Canada Summer Games Edition” is a unique program for 2022 offered by the Centre for Sport Capacity as part of its Sport Leadership Academy. This 3-day leadership development program is for girls aged 11-13 years who are involved in any level of sport. The program provides an opportunity for girls to “learn to lead” and develop valuable leadership and life skills, all within the context of sport.


The Centre for Sport Capacity is a hub for sport management research, student experiential learning, and practical support to sport organizations in the Niagara Region, across Canada and abroad.


Instruction will be conducted by MVP Full Circle Owner & Workshop Facilitator Margot Page. Sessions will be led by globally recognized experts, athletes, and coaches. See the lineup below!


Participants will learn key elements of leadership and how to apply these elements to themselves and to others. Sessions will surround the themes of ‘Leading Myself’, ‘Leading My Future Self”, and ‘Leading My Community’. All sessions are designed to help participants grow their confidence in sport and life regardless of their current leadership or sporting experience.


Every morning is filled with interactive and immersive sessions built around sport led by our educators. After lunch, participants will be guided to women’s sporting events at Brock University or at the new Canada Games Park located next to Brock. The day closes with reflections on skills and experiences of the day.

On the last day, family members are welcome to join the Closing Ceremony at 3:00 PM where a frameable certificate of completion from Brock will be presented.


Each participant also receives a limited edition Brock- Canada Games commemorative package which includes a reusable water bottle and collector pin.
