Why Join the Sport Network
One of the priorities of “The Strategy” refers to "Leadership and Involvement". One of the first action items in the strategy is to form a Sport Network comprised of representatives from Maple Ridge sport organizations, School District 42, Health Authority and other key individuals who are passionate about sport and physical activity. The group will provide leadership, provide an advisory function and will foster an inclusive sport and physical activity community.
Some benefits to being part of the Sport Network:
- Access to the Maple Ridge Leisure Centre and other facilities
- Team training opportunities (yoga, spin, aqua)
- Meeting rooms for board meetings and annual general meetings
- Promotion opportunities in the seasonal recreation guide
- Recognition of your athletes or sport
- Sport development (networking, sharing resources, think tank)
