Format: Paperback
Heatstroke is a unique look at the state of amateur sport in Canada. The book addresses an issue that many people talk about (at least once every two years), but few people go further than just talking. Michael Simonson explains how we got into the position that we are in terms of sport funding and provides examples of failed leadership that have decreased the effectiveness of our summer sport programs. Hopefully by knowing the facts, Canadians will stand up for Canadian athletics and demand more from our sport organizations.
