It was announced today that Racquetball BC has gained Affliate Provincial Sport Organization status with viaSport! Affiliate status will allows Racquetball BC to benefit from a variety of granting programs, organizational development and education opportunities available only to viaSport’s members and affiliates.
Over the past year, Racquetball BC volunteers have been committed to re-establishing the organization’s status in the BC sport community. They have developed new policies, a new website and a revitalized vision. As well, they have been able to hire staff to help out, incuding Jennifer Falloum who has come on board as their Executive Director. Racquetball BC will be welcoming Jenn official in the next few days.
