PacificSport ignites athletes' potential

PacificSport Vancouver Island helps high-performance athletes reach their potential. A new program will help teens transition, first, to high-performance level.

The provicial sport body announced its Ignite athlete development program this week.

Ignite is targeted at youths aged 12-17, intended to improve athleticism, physical literacy and fitness through a multi-sport training program.

“The goal really is to get kids learning about these facets of training when they are younger so that when they reach that high-performance age they will have already been doing things the right way,” said Ashley Guzak, program coordinator with PacificSport, in a press release.

Ignite will run twice a week starting Sept. 13. For more information, please call Guzak at 250-755-5843.
