Spotlight on Sport

Initiatives

The Spotlight on Sport initiative was born out of the Coquitlam in Bloom program. Today, it’s an ongoing initiative that aims to:

  • Celebrate sport and inspire our sport community
  • Recognize the positive impact sport associations have in our community
  • Recognize sport volunteers for the great job they do
  • Show appreciation for the sport community’s contributions

The Spotlight on Sport program offers many drop-in activities throughout the year. By participating you can:

  • Discover fun ways to stay active
  • Learn more about Coquitlam’s sports organizations
  • Try new sports to see what you love
