Sport equips all people with skillsets and connections that are foundational. It sharpens our competitive nature, teaches teamwork, builds community identity, and introduces us to mentors who can transform our lives.

Whether kids, teens, adults or seniors, sport keeps us active and engaged, physically and socially. It helps us maintain healthy habits, mental acuity, and of course, relationships with the people we’re playing with. 

Bringing Sport Back

While almost all British Columbians agree in the value of sport, over the past few years, participation in sport has declined across the province, and youth across the country are spending less time getting physical activity from recreation.
