Since as early as 5 years old I can recall sports holding a large impact over my life. My Dad has always been extremely active and really encouraged all my siblings and I to partake in sports we enjoyed. He coached me as a soccer player, a football player, he even made us a basketball quart beside our house which also transformed into a ball hockey rink. Our house always provided a space for play to our friends and other children in the neighborhood.
I’m so grateful that I was given the opportunity to play sports through my childhood; it’s taught me the value of team work, it’s built up my self esteem and confidence and it’s always brought me so much joy! Now I want to help provide other children with the same gift; movement, sport, team and play!
