CBU to launch CAPERS in the Community multisport program

July 11, 2019

Cape Breton University and Cape Breton Regional Municipality have partnered on the launch of CAPERS in the Community, a multisport program that will deliver programming through communities throughout the Municipality. The program consists of a free, four-day activity camp for 5-12-year-olds that allows youth to try out new sports, build physical literacy, and develop fundamental movement skills. “The youth are our future and we want to take our President’s lead and help champion the Island’s prosperity,” said CBU Athletics Director John Ryan. “This partnership with the CBRM will allow us to take our multisport camps to many communities this summer and provide a great opportunity for our youth to become engaged and participate in sport.” CBU (NS)
