PISE is a charitable non-profit organization that provides education, programs and services across South Vancouver Island, while managing the Pacific Institute for Sport Education facility. We are nationally recognized for work in the areas of physical literacy and inclusion, delivering weekly programs to approximately 15,000 children. We also deliver the esteemed Canadian Sport School program for high performance athletes in Grades 10 to 12.
Our vision is to transform lives through healthy activity and sport by providing physical activity, health and sport education programming and services for children, youth and adults that focus on inclusion, physical literacy, active living, and the development of performance sport.
The delivery of our programs is dependent on the generosity of our community. Thank you to our donors for helping us build a healthy community!
PISE is a nationally recognized leader in providing inclusive, developmentally appropriate programs for children. We are proud to now work with approximately 15,000 children each year throughout the south island region, bringing them heart pumping, bone building, sweaty and fun physical literacy enriched sessions at schools, recreation and community centres and at PISE. Our goal is for every child to LOVE being active so that they develop into happy, healthy and active adults.
Critical to this goal is working to ensure all children have the opportunity to participate, including those in need. We do this by working in schools, providing free programming in the community and offering our PLAY Your Way Grant for our summer camps and other programs. We also offer a variety of adapted programs for children experiencing a disability (and their families) to develop physical and social skills with developmentally appropriate programming and equipment.
