Investing in young athletes impacts many lives. Athletes benefit individually from the team program, who in turn, impact people exponentially upon paying it forward. Financial support enables the Provincial Team to keep making a difference.
Historically, thousands of volunteers have worked to establish Nova Scotia’s Provincial Ski Team – coaches, administrators, managers, officials, and financial supporters. All realizing the value of investing in our young athletes.
The tradition continues. We’ve seen our first generation athletes transition to coaching, watched as their daughters or sons raced, and now we see their children moving into leadership roles. We’re bursting with pride.
Your financial support helps us to develop good people, technically skilled athletes, and many future volunteers.Nova Scotia Provincial Team
Our program invests in people. Examples of our athletes who have moved into coaching roles are in the photo below; along with a few of our second generation team families – choosing to pay it forward.
Research documents the benefits for youth who volunteer, and the importance of connecting youth to communities demonstrating voluteerism. Our program is filled with volunteer leadership and opportunities to partake. Further reading (click this link): “Youth Volunteerism: Research Report”
