PLAY Comox Valley’s Mission is to foster collaboration and action among community stakeholders to educate, inspire, and support building physical literacy for a healthy, active lifestyle for all.

PLAY stands for Physical Literacy And You! We are stakeholders from recreation, education, sport, and health sectors with a vision that Comox Valley children, youth, adults and seniors are physically active and healthy throughout their lifespan.

To accomplish this, education and training opportunities will be created for leaders within recreation, education, health, and sport sectors, as well as for community members.
