    The MTU, in partnership with Sport NS, Communities Cultural and Heritage (CCH) and the Canadian Sport Centre Atlantic (CSCA) is looking to fund coaches this year to assist with the financial barrier that comes with the coach certification process. Our School/Club owners will be assisting with the distribution of the Coach Application, please reach out to your club for more information.

    With our partnership, we are looking to create a minimum coaching standard across the province that we will be following in the years to come. In order to start the minimum standard, we are looking to provide financial assistance for a large portion of our coaches. We will be looking to fund coaches who are interested in becoming Assistant Instructor (AI) certified, those who need to complete their AI certification, those looking to achieve Dojang Coach (DC) certification and potentially coaches who are interested in the Performance Coaching certification.

    Today the Province announced further changes to Public Health Regulations related to COVID-19.  These changes are applicable to the zone of Western and Central Halifax Reginal Municipality (HRM), which is defined as HRM from Hubbard’s to (and including) Porters Lake and the communities up to Elmsdale and Mount Uniacke/Hants County including businesses.  As it relates to sport, the Province will be shutting down all sport activity in this area beginning on Thursday, November 26th for a period of two weeks, ending on Thursday December 10th.  At that time the Province will be re-evaluating the epidemiology and determining next steps.


    During this time period people residing in the impacted zone will not be permitted to travel outside the zone to take part in any sport activities. This would include anyone residing in the zone who may participate on a team/group that is outside the zone.  For those living outside of the impacted zone, sport activities can continue while continuing to pay close attention to the public health guidelines.  However, you should not leave your zone for a sport activity, so for example if you live in Cape Breton you should not travel to the South Shore for a sport activity.  Complete information on the provincial zones can be found on the Nova Scotia government website.
