Learn to Play grant supports sports in Abbotsford

A new sport strategy is currently under development

Funding from the RBC Learn to Play project has led to a new sport strategy currently under development in Abbotsford to be released next year.

PacificSport Fraser Valley, one of 28 RBC Learn to Play community grant recipients across Canada, has received a $12,000 grant.

The organization has partnered with the City of Abbotsford to use the grant for the creation of an Abbotsford Physical Activity and Sport Sustainability Plan.

The plan will analyze the current state of physical activity and sport delivery in Abbotsford and provide strategic recommendations based on current research and best practices.

Sport Abbotsford, the newly revitalized local sports council, will assist in providing local sport expertise throughout the project and is ready to advocate for the recommendations in the final report.

“This project will provide Abbotsford with a greater understanding of how the community can better ensure that everyone is active for life, consistent with the Canadian Sport for Life framework,” said Linda Palm, general manager of PacificSport Fraser Valley.
