Tomorrow's Legends has been formed for the purpose of empowering youth through sport and culture.
Organized sports can have a profound impact on one's life and often plays an important part in shaping an individual's character, work ethic and self confidence. For many kids, it can be the difference in making a successful transition from childhood to adulthood. However, sports at both recreational and competitive levels can sometimes have expenses that put the activities out of reach for many families.
Infrastructure is of course a vital component for athletes to be able to participate in organized sports. Many different sports associations need facilities to run programming with consistency and quality. Aside from hockey, Cape Breton lacks the necessary infrastructure required to deliver sports programs. Our organization has assumed the role of being instrumental in establishing a multi-sport facility in the greater Sydney area. It has developed a business plan to secure funds from various entities and is currently in the process of executing that plan. Over the past four years, our team along with recognized members of long-standing sports organizations have been working hard to help our government leaders understand the significance of the need as our region is falling significantly behind the rest of the province and the country when it comes to facilities and youth sports programming.
We govern with the notion that all kids should be able to participate in organized sports regardless of socioeconomic status. Equally, young athletes should be immersed in an environment where cultural diversity is celebrated. We endeavour to work with organizations to foster such an environment.
Until a facility is established, whether it's a Tomorrow's Legends facility or one realized under a separate project , our organization will operate as follows. We will not use any proceeds resulting from donations, lottery activities or crowdfunding projects towards wages, stipends, or any form of personnel payments. Our board of directors are serving on a volunteer basis and our goodwill ambassadors do not receive any form of financial compensation. Once a facility is established, our organization will move into an operational role to focus on long term sustainability, athlete development and increasing participation rates among kids. If a facility is established outside of our organization all proceeds raised will be reallocated into a fund for athlete development, specialty training initiatives or athletic scholarships.
