The minor sports community saw the ribbon cutting for a new home for many of Brant sports organizations. It is with thanks to Access Storage, a storage company with 162 locations across across Canada, who had decided to expand their community connection by adding their first Sports Complex in Brantford.

The official opening ceremony included: 6 City Councillors with Councillor Richard Carpenter welcoming everyone given the Mayor’s absence.

There was also representation from M.P.P. Will Bouma’s Office; one of the candidates for Mayor, Kevin Davis; Board members from the Brantford Sports Council; and management of the Access Storage corporation.  Everyone celebrated the role a private facility was offering by supporting youth sports in particular and sports in general. 

The Brantford Sports Council has an agreement to manage the leasing of space for minor sports and private operations at the rear of the building at the corner of Elgin and Wayne Gretzky parkway.  There is an astro-turf flooring for certain sports, a full sand court for beach volleyball and the height and netting for various types of athletic endeavors.

The tenants include Beach Paradise and:

Brantford Minor Softball Association and ‘The Diamond Backs’

Brantford Cheer

Brant Skating Club

Brantford Briers Basketball

Brant Youth Volleyball Club

Brantford City Soccer Club

Brantford Track and Field Club

Brantford Bisons Football

Section 42 Private Baseball and Softball Training

It is time to fill the void as a result of Brant News closing. Online...free...no flyers delivered... I'm ready. I have been in media for over 50 years: Television Broadcasting; Print Investigative and Photo Journalism ; a VERY brief turn in Radio; Cable Television; and now publishing a live Digital News Platform. My community board contributions have covered: Health Care (BGH, John Noble Home and Lansdowne Children's Centre); Post Secondary Education; Special Olympics, Sports Council; Victim Services; Rotary; and Physician Recruitment Task Force. Married with 3 daughters, 6 grandchildren, 5 step grandchildren, one great grandson and one step great grandson. My spare time passions include professional and amateur photography, soap stone carving, writing, travel and scuba diving as a Dive Master. Finally, I have served as a City Councillor for 4 years and as a community advocate/consultant for residents and local business for 8 years since then. Join us in sharing stories 4BRANT
