Founded in December 2014 by Laoghan Hendra, Cumberland Sporting Club is a multi-sport project based in Amherst, Nova Scotia. Our adult coaches are licensed, experienced and full of passion for sport. Our youth coaches, called Coach Cadets, are dedicated to coaching as a life-long learning process. Spring through winter, we deliver all-season small-sided play opportunities for our region's youth, through running, soccer and futsal.

Our Values

At Cumberland Sporting Club, we value:

-A culture of kindness, fairness and respect

-Long-term player development (LTPD), long-term athlete development (LTAD) and enjoyment of sport over a win-at-all-costs mindset

-Hard work, resilience and healthy risk taking

-Coach training, quality delivery and low coach-to-athlete ratios

-Commitment from coaches and athletes to be present at training and to learn the fundamentals
