Get More from Sport!

multisportawareness_specializationSport Nova Scotia knows that early sport specializations only cause harm to young athletes and guess what, we’re behind them. Studies show that youth who specialize in a sport at an early age are more likely to quit sport early due to burn out, overuse injuries, and lack of fun. We want your kids to be happy, healthy, active adults and you should too. Learn more about the benefits of multisport at www.getmorefromsport.ca and join us in a multi-sport movement!
