By mid-March 2020, all organized sporting activities for kids came to a sudden stop. KidSport Greater Victoria, a local not-for-profit organization that provides grants to help cover the costs of registration fees, paused funding.
In this episode, Paul and Dave chat with Jill Shaw, executive director of KidSport Greater Victoria. She explains how her role and her organization’s mission has shifted over the past months. Fast forward to September 2020 and some local sport organizations have started up again, funding has resumed, and some children are returning to sport. Reflecting on the pandemic, Jill shares her renewed belief in just how critical their mission is for children’s well-being.
