Quality Sport Checklist for Communities and Clubs

At its essence, quality sport and physical activity is achieved when the right people do the right things at the right times, which leads to positive experiences for participants. The following checklist is composed of a number of elements that lead to quality sport experiences in any sport program. It has been designed with everyone in mind, including women and girls, indigenous populations, participants with a physical or cognitive disability, and newcomers to Canada. This checklist can be used as a tool by community and club leaders to assess and improve the quality of sport programming in a club or community setting.

From a nutrition perspective, a diet rich in vegetables and fruit, quality protein, and whole-grain foods is important for a strong immune system. There are many nutrients that support the immune system and the best approach is to eat a balanced healthy diet to strengthen your immune system’s ability to fight infections.
