Athletes are looking for ways and resources to train at home, in their neighbourhood, and other locations that enable social distancing. LSC has compiled a list and will be updating as information is shared with us.
To help them, the Lethbridge Sport Council has compiled a list of local, provincial and national sports organizations and businesses that are offering sport training resources in alternate ways such as providing on-line resources, Facebook Live or YouTube videos. It is recommended that parents/caregivers be present and supervise child and youth at-home sport activities.
