True Sport Principles

True Sport is a national movement for sport and community.

At the heart of True Sport is a simple idea: good sport can make a great difference. As a proud member of the True Sport movement, SSC believes in the difference that sport can make in the everyday lives of Canadians; to achieve this, sport must first and foremost provide a positive experience for participants. Speed Skating Canada recognizes the True Sport Principles for Sport as a guiding light in defining the sport experience and proudly displays the "True Sport Lives Here" on all events and materials, which embody the principles of good sport common to all Canadians.
