KidSport Nova Scotia



“KidSport has given my daughters opportunities I couldn’t give them, and taught them real life skills I couldn’t teach them; confidence in public, friendship, teamwork and good sportsmanship.” - Parent


Granted to kids in Nova Scotia last year.


Kids helped off the sidelines in Nova Scotia last year.

By supporting KidSport we all win. When kids have access to sport they improve in school, become stronger leaders, create safer communities, ignite inclusivity and fuel healthy habits for life.

OUR Team

KidSport Nova Scotia is made possible thanks to passionate volunteers and our incredible partners. Together we’re making it so no child in Nova Scotia is left watching from the sidelines.

Patrick Thompson
provincial coordinator

Born and raised in a small town in Prince Edward Island, Patrick was fortunate to participate in a variety of sports which helped him gain the skills which led him to where he is today. On the baseball field, badminton court, and hockey rink he developed life-long friends, experiences, and memories he would never forget. Now, Patrick gets to help families all across the province ensure their child gets to chase their sporting dreams just like he did.... So ALL Kids Can Play!
