NORTHERN PROGRAMMING WITH A COMMUNITY FOCUS
Northern Community & Schools Recreation Coordinator Program (NC&SRCP) helps northern Saskatchewan kids by providing community-based sport, culture and recreation programs after school, in the evening, on weekends and at community and school special events.
Community & School Recreation Coordinators are employed to facilitate the delivery of sport, culture and recreation programs, using the school as a major asset of the community and in partnership with other community-based organizations providing sport, culture and recreation programs, services and facilities.
This program is delivered in partnership with Northern municipal communities, First Nation communities, community sport, culture and recreation organizations, education division/authorities and the Northern Sport, Culture & Recreation District.
The Northern Community & Schools Recreation Coordinator Program was first implemented during the 1996-97 school year, growing to six schools by the 2002-03 school year. The program has continued to grow and evolve and currently includes 21.5 sites.
