At Local Sport Search, part of our mission is to give back to the community. We’re currently working with the following organizations.
The Boys & Girls Club of Niagara
We give children and youth the chance to Dream Big.
As Canada’s largest child-and-youth-serving charitable organization, Boys and Girls Clubs help to transform young lives. We provide safe, accessible places where kids can participate in a wide variety of recreational and leisure activities affordably and year-round.
The Boys & Girls Club of Niagara offers children and youth programs that help build confidence, self-esteem, skills, and knowledge on their path to success and full potential. Over 7,000 children and youth participate in and enjoy Boys and Girls Club quality programs across 14 locations in Niagara.
Local Sport Search helps promote the summer camps offered by the Boys & Girls Club of Niagara. On a monthly basis, a portion of all paid listings is donated to help subsidize the cost of the summer camps.
Brock University – Centre For Sport Capacity
The Centre For Sport Capacity is committed to improving capacity for sport organizations on a local and national level through support and research. A collaborative team of faculty, students and experts in the sports community work to identify challenges facing sports leaders and organizations. With the help from student research projects – potential solutions are generated and tested for the sporting community.
Local Sport Search and the Centre For Sport Capacity are looking to analyze the economical impact of sporting events in Niagara. Information is gathered during and after sporting events to help identify trends and opportunities to attract more events to the area. The information is presented to municipalities to highlight the successes and challenges the sporting event may have encountered.
Together, the organizations help maintain the sports rental facilities database for the Niagara Region.
