“Every single school I’ve visited has seen significant improvements in the kid’s grades, behaviours and social inclusion” Nicolas Boulay, CFL player

I’ve been with BOKS for three years and found the best way to break down barriers and to get through to someone is through physical exercise. 

Every single school I’ve visited has seen significant improvements in the kids’ grades, behaviours and social inclusion. The smiles, the laughs, the sweat and even sometimes the tears when I accidentally throw a football a little too hard, is what makes the experience so memorable. I needed sports to be able to stay focused in school because of my excessive amount of energy and my general lack of interest. Sports motivated me to persevere through my classes at every level and to eventually earn a Finance Major at the University of Sherbrooke. 

With social media nowadays, it isn’t always easy to find positive role models for our children. The trainers and the athletes taking part in the BOKS program strive to be just that, by teaching that there is fulfilment as well as self-gratification that comes from pushing your limits and working together as a group to achieve a common goal. It is what WE do, every day, on or off the football field and is what the BOKS program does for all the kids. BOKS ROCKS!!
