reSPORT: Finding Creative Ways to Broaden the Playing Field

Throughout the sport world, competitive athletes have one common goal: they’re constantly trying to get better.

Shave a second off a personal best. Develop a quicker first step. Knock down that jump shot more consistently. No matter what the arena, from a local rink to the Olympic spotlight, every dedicated athlete and coach knows there’s always room to improve.

Good sport leaders and administrators feel that same restlessness when it comes to the big picture of sport delivery: if we’re doing decently today, we could be doing even better tomorrow.

That’s the philosophy behind reSPORT, a collaborative effort across Nova Scotia’s sport and recreation sector to find creative ways to make sure all Nova Scotians have equitable access to sport. READ MORE

Sport Brings a Sense of Community

Cathy Burton, Chef de Mission, Team Nova Scotia

It has been an honour to serve as Team Nova Scotia’s Chef de Mission at the 2019 Canada Winter Games. Over the years I have attended Summer and Winter Games as a parent, manager, assistant coach, and head coach. Being Chef de Mission has awarded me time to reflect on the importance of youth sport and volunteering in our communities.

I was recently asked why I spend so much time in sport as a volunteer while not being paid. The question perplexed me.  Although I may not be paid in dollars, you cannot put a price tag on the memories, connections, friendships and sense of community I have experienced over the last 30 years!
