CEO’s Message – Building a Relationship with I·SPARC
Curl BC is very pleased to begin relationship building with I·SPARC (Indigenous Sport, Physical Activity and Recreation Council) to increase the involvement in curling among Indigenous people.
I·SPARC is a provincial organization established with the purpose of improving the health outcomes of Indigenous peoples by supporting and encouraging physically active individuals, families, and communities. The programs and services delivered by I·SPARC are designed to build capacity and increase access to sport, recreation, and physical activity in First Nations communities, Métis Chartered Communities, Aboriginal Friendship Centres, schools, and other delivery agencies throughout the province.
As a first step, Curl BC is interested in hearing from member facilities who would be interested in hosting a Try Curling program for Indigenous communities in their area. Curl BC and I·SPARC will combine to support the program which will hopefully lead to more curlers in your facility. Please contact Kim Dennis at email@example.com if you would like to find out more.
We hope you will encourage your club to join with us in this new initiative and perhaps take a leadership role yourself.
All the best for December and the lead up to the holiday season. Lots of great events occurring around the province culminating in the combined BC Mixed Doubles and Safetek Profire BC U18 Championships being hosted by the Victoria Curling Club from December 27 to 31. Fantastic to see 16 teams entered in the U18 and 20 teams in the Mixed Doubles!
