A Vision for Sport Development
In December of 2017, City Council approved the document “A Vision for Sport Development”. This proposed framework includes five themes: Athlete, coach and officials development, Physical Literacy, Sport System Sustainability (Community Engagement) and Sport Tourism.
The sport development team at the Pan Am Centre is committed to providing improved quality of sport and to linking local Markham sport groups to Provincial and National Sport Organizations to align local programming. We follow the principles established by the Sport for Life Society and its Long Term Athlete Development model.
