Learn how companies have a blast while volunteering at Sport Central.

Earlier this year, and every year for almost 4 years now, the team at Waste Connections Canada helps Sport Central by providing garbage removal service at a reasonable rate. They also help us recycle our metal, which is a lot! We fill up a 20 ft. container once per month. That’s right! We recycle close to 40 tons of metal and rubber annually! 

Waste Connections Canada has a team building project where they purchase new bicycles, helmets and elbow pads for riders coming to Sport Central. The staff and management build and assemble these bicycles and deliver them to us when complete. This year, Waste Connections Canada delivered 60 brand new bicycles to our Bike Shop in anticipation of upcoming spring demand. These bikes will put big smiles on little faces. From all of us, thank you!

Sport Central extends our thanks to Royal Glenora Club Members who donated sport equipment to us. Not only did they donate a ton of equipment they also helped staff load up and deliver THREE pick-up trucks worth of items. For all involved, including Club Fitness Manager Naissa and all of the Sport Pros for championing the equipment drive and encouraging donations from their areas, we lift our sticks in salute!

Thank you to FC Edmonton for giving us a van full of donations!

We were so pleased the Harry Ainley High School Women’s Basketball Team collected over 900 bottles and cans which translated into a big donation to Sport Central! We are so grateful for your efforts that will help countless kids enjoy sport!
