What Is Go NB?

The Go NB grant is designed to strengthen physical literacy and reduce barriers to sport participation for children and youth, with a particular focus on under-represented populations.

The Go NB Grant Program is the result of a bilateral agreement between the Government of Canada (Sport Canada) and the Province of New Brunswick.

New Brunswick Skating Coaches Pioneer Integration of Para-athletes

NCCP Coach Stacey Rouse-Charlton of the Sussex Skating Club in New Brunswick has made Noah Robichaud’s Sydney Crosby-inspired dream of skating come true. She and Kirsten Graham, a fellow skating coach, have pioneered the integration of sledge skaters – athletes with a disability using sledges and modified hockey stick to propel themselves around the ice – into Skate Canada’s flagship CanSkate program. CAC sat down with Stacey to discuss how they came to develop this program that now serves four athletes with a disability along with able-bodied athletes.  Click here to find out more.

Active Boys Multi-Sport Festival

Western Valley offered 4 Active Boys Multi-Sport festivals at the following locations; Plaster Rock; Florenceville-Bristol; Woodstock and Nackawic, that looked at providing various sport activities for Boys in Grade 8. Active Boys Multi-Sport festivals are to give boys the opportunities, inspiration and support to participate in sport, recreation, and physical activities. This program is inclusive, does not require any prior knowledge or skill, and is designed to empower boys to become and remain active. The program is delivered as a one-day festival providing boys with sport, recreation and physical activity instruction, knowledge, practice, encouragement and information that is offered by their local Recreation Departments. By creating a safe, secure and positive environment, every boy who attends an Active Boys Multi-Sport festival may truly benefit from the power of knowledge, confidence, support and an active lifestyle. We will be offering these festival in the winter month of February to get them active during the winter. We planned non-traditional winter sports (curling; fitness; sledge hockey; broom ball; pickle ball; futsal; DIC RIP training; and bowling) that gave 196 boys from 12 different schools within the Western Valley Region. After these events, the boys went home with an informational package that gave them some ideas on various types of Physical Activities that are offered from their local Recreation Department. "We would like to thank GO NB for supporting this worthwhile initiative put on by the Western Valley Recreation Association."
