5 November 2011 / Outsport Toronto holds second SCRUM conference for athletes and organizers

A message from our newest member, Outsport Toronto. We strongly encourage athletes, fans, and all involved in LGBT sport to attend this event which, based on our experience with OTS, is sure to be enriching for all:


I'm delighted to welcome you all to OUTSPORT TORONTO's Scrum 2011, our second annual 'mini-conference' for LGBTTIQQ2SA Amateur Sport and Recreation.

Last year’s Scrum was the first attempt at creating a forum for networking and learning, which, even with its modest agenda and format, drew over 50 people together from across a number of organisations at Buddies in Bad Times cabaret space. We successfully started the process of breaking down silos and providing learning opportunities with two very engaging speakers that night.

This year, we’ve gone further! With only two months to go until the Scrum on Saturday, 5 November 2011, the Scrum 2011 committee has created a solid line-up of sessions covering everything from the accounting and financial controls you need to have in place to ensure your league’s assets are safeguarded to building membership to effectively incorporating young and transgendered participants. We also have a track for those who are not club organisers, but nonetheless participate, and want to get some solid information on peak performance, nutrition, and injury prevention.

Registration is easy through this website. Registration proceeds will go toward covering the cost of the Scrum, with any surplus helping to fund OUTSPORT TORONTO's other activities throughout the year, such as the SportZone at Pride.

I’m excited about this year’s Scrum, and look forward to seeing you all there!

Shawn Sheridan
