Addressing A Need
As more people completed treatment, Sunshine Coast Health Centre (SCHC) increasingly saw an unmet need for its alumni — recovery-supportive activities that are not peer-support meetings.
To address this need, SCHC and Sober Sports implemented its indoor sports activities (indoor soccer, basketball, badminton, pickleball etc.) in September 2017.
Sober Sports also offers floor hockey in Victoria and Powell River. Lacrosse, jogging groups, and group fitness sessions are just some of the activities Sober Sports hopes to provide in the future. If you have any suggestions or ideas for a Sober Sports activity, let us know through our Contact Us page.
