What Does Burnaby MoreSports Do?

Burnaby MoreSports Society (BMS) provides free after-school sports programs for children (Grades 2-5).

We focus on:

  •      Removing traditional barriers for younger children who need more support to stay active and play sports regularly
  •      Helping older children (Grades 6-7) and youth (Grades 10-12) take on mentoring and leadership roles in our programs

BMS offers multi-sport programming throughout the school year:

  •      Basketball (Fall)
  •      Handball / Floor Hockey (Winter)
  •      Soccer (Spring)

Our recreational programs are now available at seven school locations:

Future Leaders – Junior & YELL Coaches

Our accessible sports programs for children are only possible because of the young volunteers who support us.  Elementary junior coaches (Grades 6-7) help to run activities on the day, while high school YELL coaches (Grades 10-12) receive targeted training in advance through our customized youth leadership development program (including the High 5 – Principles of Healthy Child Development course) to deliver coaching and mentorship to the elementary students.

Learn more about getting involved as a program volunteer on our Opportunities page.
