The 3rd annual Celebration of Youth Sports Week began on Saturday March 11 with Mayor Kevin Davis and MP Larry Brock participating in a flag raising ceremony held at Harmony Square. Town Crier David McKee was on hand to announce the week long event that runs until Saturday March 18.

On Saturday March 11 the 17th annual Brantford Sports Council Awards & Recognition Ceremonies was held at the Laurier Research and Academics Centre to present awards in nine categories as well as the Community Ambassador Award and the Sportsperson of the Year award.

The overall objectives of the Sports Week is to support the development of youth sports, while promoting the importance of sport in our community.

We need to continue to build a strong framework at the grassroots level to ensure we have a solid base that will provide our young athletes the opportunities to advance their development in sports and help to build their futures.

Sports remains the catalyst that brings people together and is a key element in the social fabric of our community.

Brantford has a rich history in sports at every level, our community spirit is shown through the commitment and dedication of all the coaches, parents, community partners, and everyone who volunteers their time for the betterment of young athletes.

We all have a role to play in the development of youth sports and we can all continue to make a difference in our community.

We look forward to your continued input and support in all we do.
