New: Skating Equipment Loan Program

Introducing children to the benefits of being active by making it possible for them to sample a variety of sports and activities is crucial in the development of physical literacy. Schools often plan outings for students, but access to the proper equipment becomes a barrier. 

Thanks to the support of the Department of Health & Wellness, Active Pictou County has a Skating Equipment Kit available for elementary schools in Pictou County to borrow. The kit includes 15 helmets and 24 pairs of skates in a variety of sizes.  In lieu of payments or rental fees, Active Pictou County would appreciate pictures and stories from students/staff about their experience. 

For more information or to reserve the kit contact
