Sport Fund Recipient Spotlight: Annapolis County Athletics

Annapolis County Athletics (ACA) launched their first Run, Jump, Throw, Wheel program for children aged 6-10 in Annapolis County.  With the help of Sport Fund, the club was able to train new coaches and purchase quality equipment to deliver the physical literacy based sessions. Sport Fund assisted the club to deliver the program twice since January 2019, reaching 75 children and a third session is planned with the goal of offering the program at all elementary school in Annapolis County and beyond. 

“Sport Fund has helped our organization by ensuring our coaches have the proper training and equipment to offer this Athletics Canada developed program. It teaches kids the fundamental movements of sport: running, jumping, throwing, and wheeling (for children in wheelchairs).  We love it because it forces the athletes to think about their body positions, focus on breathing and balance-sometimes for the first time” said Annapolis County Athletics President, Steven Young.  Currently ACA has about 100 members who compete during the indoor and outdoor Athletics Nova Scotia seasons and they operate a not- for- profit community fitness center for the public and the club to train in.

Sport Fund supports the growth of sport at the community level by relieving the financial stress associated with start-up costs and equipment. To learn more about how Sport Fund can help your organization, click here
