What is PacificSport?
PacificSport Vancouver Island is a not-for-profit regional sport hub created to lead athlete, coach, and community sport services on Vancouver Island.
Our organization provides dedicated support to more than 100 registered athletes and coaches, in addition to hosting community sport programs and events for people of all ages. Through partnerships with recreation departments, school districts, health authorities, and local sport organizations, PacificSport Vancouver Island delivers programming for the Canadian Sport for Life movement, improving the quality of sport and physical activity in Canada.
PacificSport Vancouver Island is funded by investments from the Province of BC, viaSport, and the City of Nanaimo and is a member of the viaSport Regional Alliance — a network of six PacificSport centres and five regional multi-sport leaders across the province.
PacificSport Vancouver Island’s role in the community is to service sport development and physical activity in the Mid-Island area. We offer services and programs that support the Canadian Sport for Life model.
