Role of a Massage Therapist with FUNSports

FUNSports has a partnership with ICT Northumberland College (Massage School) and members of the Canadian Sport Massage Therapy Association.

Ask any athlete about Massage Therapy and they will likely say it’s crucial to their training and recovery and most love getting treatments.   FUNSports saw an opportunity to offer Massage Therapy to teams and athletes in the Halifax area and now all four major teams have agreed to partner with our FUNSports Massage Squad.

The Massage Squad provides therapy for the Halifax Hurricanes, Mooseheads, Thunderbirds and Wanderers.  In return the teams help us with fundraisers and their players volunteer with FUNSports programs.

It’s a very unique Massage Therapy service and it plays a major role in maintaining the health of local professional athletes.  It is also a unique way of fundraising.

Kayla Boudreau

My name is Kayla Boudreau and I am a graduate from Northumberland College.

Currently, I am living and practicing in Kentville, Nova Scotia. Growing up I was involved in many different sports such as competitive swimming, skating, and soccer. I also competed in triathlons across Canada and distance running events for track and field. Once I reached university, my focus was on swimming as I was a member of the Acadia University Women’s Varsity Swim Team for four years, two of which I was team captain. Although I have not competed in competitive sport since university, you can still find me being active through recreational sports such as flag football, softball, CrossFit, and golf.
