Public Lecture: Participatory Action Research in Rural Sport and Recreation Management
Public lecture for Kyle Rich's PhD dissertation. Abstract: The research conducted for this dissertation involved a participatory action research (PAR) project with the Municipality of Powassan Recreation Committee. Framed with the literature pertaining to sport and recreation development, community development, and rural community studies, the project aimed to explore the perceived significance of sport and recreation and the processes of sport and recreation management, as well as to inform changes to current management and policy making practices within the rural community context. This project also sought to identify strengths and challenges of PAR as well as to explore the processes through which researchers can work with community stakeholders as agents of change within the context of (rural) community sport and recreation management. This lecture will provide an overview of the project and include time for questions and discussion from the audience.

Get involved - sport and recreation
Hi, Zoe here from NDIStv. Getting involved in sport and recreation is a great way to meet new people and stay fit. We’re here at the Disability Sport and Recreation festival in Melbourne today to find out about the great range of sports on offer for people of all abilities. Equal access to sport is important because it allows you to connect with your community, connect with your peers, and I’ve made the best friends through sport that I’ve ever made. It makes me feel included, in that you’re part of a team and you’re part of a greater community. My absolute favourite sport has to be wheelchair rugby. It’s fast, it’s full-contact, it’s strategic and I love how it really challenges people’s perceptions of what someone with a disability can do. Sport in general changes lives. It’s important for everyone to be involved in sport. Remember that it’s not just sports. There are different activities, different physical activities, recreational things that you can do that will get you out, get you moving, get you connected to your communities. For people that don’t have disabilities, include people with disabilities. And also, people with disabilities, have a go. Focus on what you can do, rather than what you can’t do, because there’s all sorts of different sports out there for all types of abilities. Anyone can do whatever they put their mind to. You don’t know how things will turn out unless you try. Well, there is no denying us Aussies love sport, and it’s great to see how accessible so many sports and recreational activities can be. So why not take a look in your community? You’ll be surprised to find how many accessible sports are available to you.

McMaster LGBTQ Inclusion in Sport & Recreation
This video was shot at Victoria Park in downtown Hamilton, Ontario, Canada onSeptember 26, 2015. We serve our McMaster and greater Hamilton communities, offering programs and services, facilities and expertise to support the cultivation of the human potential in each of us - and we aim to be the best at what we do. We recognize the value in offering active invitations, not just open doors, and are commited to leading and learning alongside our community members to build a strong and inclusive community over time. Statement of Dignity & Inclusion As the Department of Athletics & Recreation at McMaster University: We're committed to building a safe and inclusive space where diversity is celebrated. We recognize, value and encourage celebration of the human differences that surround us. We ask all members of our community to participate in fostering this spirit. Any expressions of bigotry, hatred, prejudice or disrespect are inconsistent with the ideals of preserving human dignity and our goal of cultivating the human potential in everyone, and have no place in our community. LGBTQ Inclusion in Sport & Recreation: As leaders in sport and recreation, and as a key player in Canadian Interuniversity Sport’s Pilot Project to Address Homophobia in University Sport, it is important that we expressly note that all members of our community, including lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender athletes, students and staff, are welcome to play, learn and cheer with us.

Learn About Gender Equity for Girls in School & Community Sports: Title IX & AB 2404
Title IX & AB 2404 (Fair Play in Community Sports Act) Short video re: girls' rights to gender equity in school and park and recreation athletic programs - watch & share today! Contact us for more info: http://las-elc.org/fair-play-for-girls-in-sports Thank you to the WLALA Foundation (Funded by Women Lawyers Association of Los Angeles Foundation) for making this production possible. Transcript • Gender equity in sports is required by law. • Know AND EXERCISE your rights! • Why does this matter? Did you know that... • Overall, girls who play sports get better grades and have higher scores on standardized tests than non-athletes. • And athletes are more likely to graduate from high school and go to college than those who don’t play sports. • Research shows, once they start working, girls who play sports in high school go on to earn 7% more than their non-athlete peers. • It’s really important for me to see gender equity in sports. Especially comparing myself and some boy relatives that I have that have gone on to play collegiate athletics. I feel myself saying I can do that, but I’m going to do that on the women’s side of things. I can get the same equipment, I can play at the same facilities, work out at the same facilities, that is my goal. And with title IX, I can do that. • I cannot imagine my life without sports. I would say it would be incomplete; there would be something missing. Having physical activity, having a set time where you do things, it helps you with structure. It just helps regulate my life. • I definitely want to play sports just as much as my brother wants to. Just because we’re different genders doesn’t make anything different. • Title IX is a federal law that applies in California and throughout the nation that says there can be no discrimination based on gender in public schools. • This means no unequal treatment of boys and girls, in educational programs, including athletics. • The law applies to all public elementary, middle, and high schools, including charter schools, colleges and universities. • The law requires looking at the entire athletic program, not just one or two teams, to see whether girls and boys have equal treatment and benefits throughout the program. • For example, girls and boys must have equal: o Field quality o Gyms and locker rooms o Quality and number of coaches o Equipment o Scheduling of games and practice times • The law requires schools to oversee booster clubs, sports fundraising, and donations to ensure equal resources are enjoyed by girls and boys teams alike. • Boys and girls must have equal participation in school sports. • So if there are 1000 students at a school, 500 girls and 500 boys, and 100 students play on school sports teams, then 50 of those students playing sports must be girls and 50 must be boys. • The law also prohibits retaliation against a student, parent, or coach, for example, who talks about Title IX or requests equity in their school sports program. • If you talk to someone, like a principal, because you think your school isn’t following Title IX, you shouldn’t be disciplined for taking action. • Another important law for equity among girls and boys in sports is AB 2404, the Fair Play in Community Sports Act. • The Fair Play Act is a CA law similar to title IX that requires equal treatment of girls and boys in community youth competitive athletics programs hosted by Parks & Rec Departments of California. • The Fair Play Act also applies to private sports programs that use park & rec facilities, like club soccer. • Look around. Does your school or park program treat girls equally in comparison to boys? • If you see inequality in your sports program, take action and speak up! • Gender equity in sports is required by law! • If you need help you can contact: Fair Play for Girls in Sports, a project of the Legal Aid Society-Employment Law Center

Episode #30. In Their Own Words: Disabilities, Sports, Recreation, and Community
This episode follows up on a topic we explored in our April 2017 podcast titled “Enhancing Life Through Sports and Recreation" (https://youtu.be/imSNwj8aEsE). We had a specific focus at that time on people with disabilities. In addition to the usual work-life demands, our friends, family members, co-workers, and neighbors with disabilities have a few more challenges to address on a daily basis. How do they do it? What services are available for them? This episode shines the spotlight on four participants from that program who will tell us what this program means to them and their fellow participants. *Don Bergman *Sarah Williford *Matt Sechrist *Chris Fonner ©Steve Piscitelli. 2017.
