Brody Norton has joined our team this summer as a Summer Operations Assistant. He is currently studying Physical Literacy and Sport and Recreation Management at Mount Royal University. Brody comes from a multi sport background, having played competitive baseball, volleyball, basketball, and rugby. He is excited to be able to share this passion for sports and physical activity with each family that comes to visit Comrie's Sports Equipment Bank!

We are honored to be partners with the good people at Skate To Great who have just sent us enough hockey helmets to last more than a year. You just got a couple thousand kids in the game guys, a 'thank you' barely covers it!





Just when you thought Skate to Great had done enough with all of the helmets they just donated,  they went and partnered with Fed/Ex and brought us a giant truck load of skates as well.  Thanks to Fed/Ex for collecting the skates for us over the last while at their hub location near the airport.  Very much appreciated guys.
                   Attention all schools and community charities throughout Southern Alberta!!!  Are you interested in starting a new program for your students and local low income families?  Golf is only one of the many sports that we can help out with. Check out our website or give us a call to see how we can work with you to improve the lives of our children.

We are excited to partner with KidSport CalgaryKidSport Okotoks and Comrie's Sports Equipment Bank to launch the Wood Automotive Group Kid Hero of the Month, a program that recognizes and celebrates young athletes in our community!

It's important to recognize one of the very first arenas willing to collect equipment for us. Right from the start of Comrie's in the summer of 2014 the fine folks at Lake Bonavista Community Association agreed to not only collect gear with one of our donation bins but are also contributing their own share of sports equipment such as enough basketballs for about 30 games!!! Thanks so much to all involved.
