11 AM PST – 1 PM PST

Register to attend: https://link.edgepilot.com/s/272faf81/dHDzxCCIOE6uKd3MAOXF6w?u=https://us02web.zoom.us/j/86133459226?pwd=VDRvZWQ4NWVGVWRrVEJGWCtyNjVGdz09%23success

CASH is honoured to be presenting a special webinar for our members with Alex Nelson. The webinar will be hosted by Olympic broadcaster and current Nova Scotia Sport Hall of Fame CEO Bruce Rainnie. Alex is known as the Elder of Indigenous Sport in BC and he has graciously agreed to speak to us about his experiences in the Residential School system, the importance of sport in his life and how we as sports halls of fame can address the Truth and Reconciliation Commissions’ Calls to Action. As Alex Nelson says himself, sport has always been his “artery of life,” a lifelong passion.

In the session we’ll begin by watching a video about Alex’s time in the Residential School system that’s just shy of an hour long, followed by a discussion and Q&A session. We understand two hours is a big commitment from your day so if you only have an hour, the video we’ll be watching is linked here so you can watch when its convenient, feel free to join the meeting at 12 PM PST for the discussion only.

Alex Nelson
In Nelson’s home village of Kingcome (north of Alert Bay), the Musgamagw Dzawada’enuxw people built a soccer field and from an early age he always had a ball at his feet. Soccer was his saving grace surviving seven years in the Alert Bay residential school system and later helped him overcome other life challenges. Discovering the power of sport as a vehicle for freedom and healing for Indigenous peoples, he worked to share it whenever possible. It began coaching youth, women’s, and men’s soccer teams, something he continues to do over forty years later.
In 1989, Nelson helped found the Aboriginal Sports and Recreation Association of BC, Canada’s first provincial Aboriginal sport body, and served as the organization’s executive director until 2009. He also helped found the Aboriginal Sport Circle, Canada’s national body for Aboriginal sport and physical activity, and served on the Native Participation Committee for the 1994 Commonwealth Games in Victoria.
Nelson was the first chairperson and three-time president for the North American Indigenous Games helping develop NAIG’s constitution and by-laws. He led the bid process that successfully won Victoria the right to host the 1997 NAIG and then mobilized the Games’ organization, involving over 12,000 participants on a slim $2.5 million budget and short two-year time frame. Those Games are still considered perhaps the best ever held.
After decades working tirelessly elevating Indigenous sport across North America, today Nelson is revered as an inspirational leader and elder. He was inducted into the BC Sports Hall of Fame in 2018.

2020 Survey Results Released

Hi CASH Members:

Attached are the results from our recent survey. This year has been difficult for all of our organizations. The results of the survey are intended to help our CASH executive with future direction and show the members that our organizations may be different is some ways, but very similar in many other ways.

We had 21 responses from 20 different institutions.

Here are a few basic observations:

1. Most of our institutions are closed but many are still open which was a pleasant surprise!

2. Fundraising and revenue generation have been an area that has hit our organizations hard this past year.

3. Our membership is very diverse in regards to staffing, volunteers and operating budgets.

4. Overall members seem to be happy to be part of CASH.

There is a lot of other great information found in the survey results so please take the time to review. During these difficult times it’s nice to know that we have such a great support system in place and we believe CASH and its members can be very important to all of us as we navigate through 2021.

Let’s leave the year that sports stopped in the past and focus on the future of Sport Heritage in 2021!

Yours in Sport Heritage,

Shane Mailman
President - CASH
Director – Programs and Operations
Nova Scotia Sport Hall of Fame
