We reach 14,000 children, youth and adults every year through our facilities and programs, supporting our local community with a range of services that assist in enhancing overall health and wellness, from memberships and personal conditioning to testing and athletic therapy.
How we help
We believe in providing opportunity and access to physical literacy-enriched programming for everyone, including socio-economically disadvantaged community members, which is why we provide the SportStart Grant and free programming through community centres, schools and beyond.
We’re proud to adapt any program to any individual and, with our partners, we also offer five programs per program season that are adapted to specific needs. These programs ensure access to inclusive, quality programming for roughly 25 people each, 42 weeks of the year.
We host the annual (free!) Family Sport & Recreation Festival, providing access for families and individuals to try new sports and activities. An educational tool, the Festival ultimately supports active living, reaching at least 1,400 community members every year.
Physical Literacy Leadership
120 individuals from the local sport, health, recreation and education sectors attended our first Victoria Physical Literacy Symposium, a platform for engaging all sectors in understanding and delivering physical literacy-enriched programming for healthy children. Our leaders present provincially and nationally on physical literacy.
We manage and deliver Commonwealth Legacy funding in support of podium, non-podium and developmental performance athletes and sports teams in the South Island Region, and we provide performance training programs to developing athletes.
No-Cost Facility Access
In an effort to support all of our community members, we offer no-cost memberships to students of the Camosun Centre for Sport and Exercise Education, members of the Victoria Wheelchair Sports Association, and athletes of the Canadian Sport Institute Pacific.
