Naturally Active for Life Victoria County Proud to Support in Partnership Wagmatcook Coaches NCCP Certification (June 2016)

This past weekend was huge in the development of sport in our communities. As a joint effort between Membertou, Sport Nova Scotia, and High Five, 37 community members from 6 Mi’kmaw communities, Membertou, Eskasoni, Potlotek, Wagmatcook, Waycobah, and Paqtnkek are now NCCP certified coaches in softball, soccer, basketball and volleyball. We also have 29 coaches dedicated to making sport and rec experiences positive, by becoming certified in High Five Sport. I want to send out a huge thank you to Sport NS, each sport trainer, and each community for supporting the growth of trained athletes in Mi’kmaw communities. Sport training has been on my radar for the last 3 years, and I am certainly not finished yet!!” – Krista Devoe, Physical Activity Coordinator, Membertou
