WELCOME TO THE 2020 YRS SEASON. The tentative calendar has been posted. We are awaiting confirmation on field bookings. Full Series Registration will open up March 1.
***NEW THIS YEAR*** All schools will receive one Nova Scotia Health Authority School Participation point for each full series student that signs up from that school. At the end of the year, the top participating schools will receive money to be put towards physEd equipment.
In the mean time, YRS is promoting keeping active ALL winter long by getting outside and enjoying the beauty of our province. Hike NS has a free Winter Hike series that YRS will be promoting and we will also be organizing at least one hike ourselves. "Trek the Dingle" (~4 to 5km) will be Sunday February 2th at 2pm at the lower parking lot at Fleming Park. Track the distances hiked during the series and collect badges thru the the Hikers Challenge program.
