Together, we transform lives through healthy physical activity & sport.
We help people reach their potential by providing inclusive facilities, education and leading programs for children, youth and adults of all levels and abilities. We couldn’t do this without the continued support of our communities and donors.
Now, more than ever, our community needs access to safe physical activity opportunities. PISE is proud to be open with limited capacity and strict guidelines around COVID19 in place. We are grateful to work with children in our summer camps and have welcomed over 30 children in financial need to participate in camps for free, made possible by the many donors who support our programs. We also look forward to bringing physical literacy enriched programs to schools this fall as the education system values and recognizes the need for safe, high quality physical activity programs for students during this challenging time.
In the fall, we will welcome many youth to train at PISE in preparation for their delayed seasons of sport. We are so grateful to our donors and sponsors for helping reduce the cost of these programs so that more youth can participate during these challenging times for families.
Help reduce the financial barrier for children and youth to participate in safe physical activity programs during COVID19.

- Resurfacing of gymnasium floor and new spectator stands with accessible seating for Camosun College Chargers games, competitions and community events.
- Addition of accessible power-assisted door openers to classrooms, bathrooms and common areas.
