Sending the best of luck to all of the young athletes, including Nova Scotia, competing in this weekend’s 2019 Junior Goalball National Championships!! The event gets underway in Brantford, ON, and is hosted by Canadian Blind Sports/Sports Aveugles Canada.
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.
“Jennifer MacNeil-Noble, 31, of Halifax has been named the Cleve’s Source for Sports Female Team Athlete of the Month.

Also a member of the Nova Scotia Ship Recs, the Cleve’s Source for Sports Male Team Athlete of the Month is John Courtney.
