What People Are Saying

The Nechako Nordics would like to thank the Northern BC Coaching and Officiating Development Fund for allowing us the opportunity to certify eight additional NCCP Community Coaches. Without these new coaches we would not be able to meet the demand for Jackrabbit and Ski S’Kool cross country ski lessons this winter.Your support is very much appreciated!

Without this funding, I would not have been able to participate. I am massively grateful to viaSport for supporting by removing some of the biggest barriers to performing at the highest level. I was able to compete without the overwhelming stress and distraction of going into debt to attend this event.

Thank you so much for awarding us the Rally Together sports grant this year! We think it will make a huge impact in our community and will allow us to get into so many more schools this year to help promote the game of lacrosse to elementary aged kids.

Vancouver Speed Skating Club is incredibly grateful for the support of our program from the Community Sport Development Fund and it will inspire our club to think of other ways to reach out to our community and invite participation.
