North Coast MLA Jennifer Rice spoke to the importance of helping community sports groups remain a key part of the participants that they serve.
“Our government is committed to maintaining a resilient sport sector. This second round of funding through the Local Sport Relief Fund will help ensure sport opportunities remain available in communities so that people of all ages, backgrounds and levels of ability can continue to reap the physical and mental benefits sport offers.”
How the Prince Rupert Gymnastics Association plans to make use of their funding was outlined by President Jackie Touchet.“It’s great to be receiving this grant. Now that people can return to sport, we can’t wait to spring back into action. This funding will help us offer a fine selection of recreational and competitive gymnastics options for all ages as we work to get our programs off the ground.”
