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.
