Organizations involved in Providing sports and recreation programs to children aged 6 to 12 can become a HIGH FIVE® Registered Organization. By registering with the HIGH FIVE® standard, an organization is declaring that it is committed to ensuring every child in its programs and facilities has a positive sports and recreation experience. You can see the Registered Organizations here to and see the many organizations engaged in the HIGH FIVE® Standard in Nova Scotia. You can also review the organization profile tool below to see if HIGH FIVE® would be a fit for your organization:

One of the many discoveries we’ve learned from working with more than 200 Registered Organizations interested in implementing HIGH FIVE® is the importance of knowing our ideal Registered Organization. This means not only understanding what that organization wants to achieve but having clear expectations on both sides of the relationship. Having this transparency allows the relationship to become more of an open conversation between two parties who have common values and goals.
