A common voice for sports has been formed in the North Okanagan.

With the objective to represent sporting groups of all kinds, the North Okanagan Sports Society wants to promote community activities.

“Directors of the newly formed society have come together as they all share a common interest”, said president Akbal Mund.

“Our directors are involved in a variety of sports in our community and they want to ensure there is a long term plan in place for future generations of this region”.

The mission of the society is to bring together partners (all sport organizations, all levels of government, community, volunteers) to enhance sport and recreation in the North Okanagan. Additionally, the society will champion and provide leadership for the development of sport and recreation infrastructure and hosting sport events for the betterment of our community.

“We look forward to connecting with the sporting community throughout the region to learn more about their organizations, the long term needs for their sports and future events they have planned," said Mund.
