The Sport and Social Club CBRM (SSCC) is a non-profit run by volunteers with a dream of making it easier for young adults (19+) to build connections, find friends, and get active. Sports and social activities are important to the fabric of our community, but unless you’re part of a competitive league or have an informal group of people to play with, it can be difficult to find things to do and friends to do them with. From the beginning, the SSCC has intended to be a place that takes down barriers and brings people together through welcoming, fun-first, co-ed sports and events.
Get Ready for FuN
SSCC believes that sport should be for everyone, adults included. We set out to offer activities that are enjoyable for all our participants, so we encourage fun-first playing rather than killer competitive spirits. Regardless of whether you show up on your own or with friends, have skills and experience in a sport or want to check out something brand new, SSCC is committed to creating an amazing experience every night.
SSCC is open to (and encourages participation from!) any and all genders, fitness levels, and skill levels.
Want to partner? Have a sport or event idea you wish we would offer? SSCC is also always open to new ideas and community partnerships. The best way to make your idea happen is to join one of our events, see what we are all about, and start a conversation with one of our board members!
SSCC was the brainchild of William Roy, a casual sports enthusiast who felt at a loss when he moved to Cape Breton and couldn’t find an easy way to break into adult sport. When he realized the opportunity this presented, he gathered a group of like-minded young adults to create a sport and social club similar to what’s offered in the big cities, but better. These are the people who are making the SSCC dream a reality!
Will is the man with the ideas. After creating a business plan for a sport and social club during his MBA in CED, he realized it was an idea that needed to transform into reality. Through sheer strength of will (ha), he pulled together a team that would be able to make SSCC a lasting addition to CBRM.
Erin is an aficionado of winter shenanigans and artsy activities. When she’s not trying out new sports, she acts as the official writer and general doer of practical things for the SSCC. If she has her way, SSCC will be offering skating sports and outdoor activities all through the winter.
Shaowei has been trying to take over Sydney since he moved here because he loves Cape Breton so much. He’s the SSCC’s resident business guru. He’s also an expert frisbee tosser, master goalie, and genuinely enthusiastic supporter of all things SSCC.
Mireyne is a transplant from PEI, though with her impressive social connections, you’d never guess she didn’t grow up here. She invented the potato throw for Ultimate Frisbee and is our favourite halftime whistle. She’s also quickly becoming SSCC’s Instagram star.
Julia is the most recent arrival to Cape Breton, but she brought a shiny brain full of ideas and jumped right into the world of SSCC. Julia championed the addition of basketball to the roster, and occasionally shares healthy snacks *coughbakingcough*.
McKenzie tries very hard when he comes to sports. Too hard, maybe, like that one time he sacrificed the safety of his glasses for a good game. He brings a keen business sense and professionalism to the board. But not too much. Fun-first, right?
Oz is SSCC’s unofficial mascot. He provides essential services such as play testing the sports equipment, sampling the grass at outdoor fields, and modelling for SSCC promo. You can say hi to him at outdoor games since he likes to come cheer the players on.
