Sport Nova Scotia is proud to announce the two recipients for this month’s Good Sport Awards; Yael Bloom, a 12-year-old swimmer and Jake Boutilier a 15-year-old first-degree black belt in Karate.

12-year-old swimmer Yael Bloom’s determination to make a difference hasn’t gone unnoticed by her Halifax Trojan Aquatic Club coaches. This young woman swam 5 km, raising over $5000 for Adsum for Women & Children’s housing project, The Sunflower.

Adsum offers emergency shelter and affordable housing every night to women, families and gender-expansive persons. Yael is proud to support Adsum in its creation of new housing to provide those in need with the warmth, safety and security they need and deserve.

Last month, 15-year-old Jack Boutilier obtained the top scores in November when he stepped onto the mat in Karate Nova Scotia’s first live event since the COVID-19 pandemic. Jack demonstrated his eagerness to go above and beyond to encourage the participation of younger athletes by volunteering to help officiate when other judges were unable to attend the meet.

Sport Nova Scotia recognizes these athletes and their outstanding contributions both on and off the field of play. We hope that these athletes will be a source of inspiration to all Nova Scotia athletes in their sporting pursuits and encourage them to give back to their community. We thank Cleve’s Source for Sport for their sponsorship of this important award.
