Nova Scotia was very well represented this past weekend at the Eastern Canadians goalball competition in Brantford, ON.
The NS Ship Recs brought home gold medals, securing first place for the third year in a row in the open rec. division! The co-ed team earned 5 wins and 1 tie.
Young Nova Scotians also brought home hard-earned hardware! Youth teams, the Blizzards and Bluenosers captured gold and bronze respectively.
Congratulations the athletes & coaches! We are beyond proud. Go Nova Scotia Go!
We had a great time sharing goalball with Cape Breton on the weekend and we’re not finished yet! If you’re interested in giving goalball a try or would like to organize a demonstration, we’d love to hear from you.
