School Sports NL Welcomes the 2022-2023 School Year

ST. JOHN’S, NL, September 7, 2022 – After triumphing through the challenges that the last two years have presented, School Sports NL is ready to welcome the new school year in hopes that it will provide students with a more normal routine and the opportunity to participate once again, in sports and physical activity.

School Sports NL is very pleased to be the primary organization delivering physical activity and sport programs in schools throughout the province. For over 50 years, students of member schools have been provided with opportunities to be involved in educationally based, healthy activities, which work to support the school’s curriculum.

Now, as the school year begins, School Sports NL is thrilled to welcome their new Board President Chad Legge. “We are quite excited to have Chad as our new President,” said Karen Richard, Executive Director. “He has been a fantastic supporter of this organization and a key member of School Sports NL for over a decade. As Mike Ball, our former President steps down, we would like to extend our gratitude and thank him for his dedication and support. We are confident that Chad will continue the same impactful work throughout the school year.”

SSNL maintains its exciting partnerships with Keyin College & The School Milk Foundation of Newfoundland & Labrador – Gold Level sponsors of the SSNL Varsity Program. With the support of these wonderful organizations, student-athletes can enjoy physical activity and sports-based initiatives which will prove valuable for all.

School Sports NL is the lead for organized, education-based, school athletics and participation-based activities in Newfoundland and Labrador. SSNLs two main programs include Varsity, the competitive school sports program; and Participation Nation (PN), the recreational program offering inclusive non-competitive activities for students K-12. Both streams of SSNL are collectively committed to enriching the lives of the province’s youth through activity-based learning, providing them with tools to thrive and grow.
