Sports For Players, By Players
Community at the Core
The core of our model is a belief that sport is best run by those who play it...
I.e, we put the power of organizing sport into the hands of community.
This means that volunteers are at our heart! They are the ones in control & the ones who we serve. We exist to give them the tools, support, funding & guidance to run sports programs in their vision.
Having no volunteers means having no Halifax PLAYS.
"All the games are, in my opinion...so so so so fun! Thank you so much for the wonderful job you do in heading this whole thing up. Soccer was never on my radar, but thanks to you, you've made it doable, accessible, fair and fun."L.N. Rec Soccer Player
"I joined the summer softball league with some people from my work... We have all had a great time and have appreciated everything the volunteers and organizers have done to make our experience a success. Halifax PLAYS has gone out of its way to include us!"D.W.Softball Player
"I would like to thank you again for this summer of youth soccer. P. has had a fabulous time & has actually asked to keep on playing: That is all because of you, the fabulous coaches, your ability to interact with the kids in a non- judgmental, all-inclusive & kid- friendly approach that has been amazing to watch. This has been the most positive team experience we have had with youth sports & hope to see you next summer! Thank You."T.L.Youth Soccer Parent
We always looked forward to Thursday nights under lights and being around friends and other wonderful people like all of you! Thank you for the hard work you put into each night to set up/ take down and always welcoming everyone with a smile.Meagan
