The Activate story

What started as a search to find a sports program for her two year old son, turned into an opportunity to create something new.

In 2016, Coach Erin was hopeful to find a sports program for her two year old son. The only problem was, there were not many programs tailored to two year olds. But as every parent knows, young toddlers have endless energy, and it can sometimes prove difficult to harness it. Of the programs she did find, nothing seemed to ring true with them. Thus began the journey to create a new kind of sports program for the Winnipeg area. One where kids can come, be active, learn about different types of sports and be encouraged!
It took one year for Coach Erin to research, create the class curriculum, purchase the equipment and structure the company. In January of 2017, Activate Sports launched. Since then, the fun hasn’t stopped!
