Participant & Athlete Development

CADS-NS ensures participants continue receiving value and development over the course of their involvement in programs and on the ski hills. In fact, many of our participants discover such a sense of belonging during their involvement, they continue on to become instructors and volunteers with CADS themselves. Our history and our continued longevity in the Nova Scotia ski and snowboard would not be possible without our participants and athletes and allows us to see these individuals grow up and become the very best they can be, on and off the hills.

CADS-NS & Community Development
