The Public Service
Sector
1. New Westminster Secondary School
2. Queensborough Community Centre
3. Canada Games Pool
4. Moody Park Arena
1. New Westminster Secondary School
– Uptown New Westminster
• NWSS is the perfect example of a public service sector
because it is a public high school, which is funded by
the government. Public schools serve as “public good…
[and are a] direct benefit to all” as every child has the
right to free education in Canada (Lunn, 2020, p.3). It
also offers night school adult education, and they have
sports activities run on their property where public
community events are sometimes held. Just like all
other secondary schools in B.C., physical education is a
mandatory course for grade 8 and 9 students. This
connects to physical education as we are studying it in
this course. NWSS is known for its sports teams, “The
Hyacks” that play 17 different sports which are run by
coaches that are either teachers at the school or
volunteers in the community.
This image is of the NWSS athletic logo featuring a fireman and their team name, the Hyacks, inspired by the name for the first fire
department of New Westminster which were known for being strong, fast, and hard workers (New Westminster Secondary School, 2020).
2. Queensborough Community
Centre – Queensborough
• Queensborough community centre is an
example of the public service sector
because it is open to the public regularly.
When you go through the entrance you
see the front desk, where you can sign up
for several different recreational activities
for all ages. Community centres provide
services such as “fitness, sport, age-
related programs, events, arts,
leadership, etc.” that are known as
“public good” (Lunn, 2020, p. 3). In the
facility there is a workout gym, an indoor
basketball court/ gym, a library, 2 studios
and 2 classrooms. This connects to
recreation as we have covered in this
course through having space for people
to use as they please (they can do
exercises on their own at the fitness
centre or join a class and follow an
instructor in the studio). This also applies
to the area of physical education as
covered in this course as most activities it
promotes are to work on physical health
or provide exercise classes (showing you
workouts and helping you do them),
these classes also cover the area of
coaching as you have a coach guiding you
through exercises and helping you do
them correctly.
This picture was taken of the outside of the Queensborough community centre (Queensborough Community Centre, 2016).
3. Canada Games Pool – 6th avenue, New Westminster
• This is an example of the public service sector
because it is a city-run facility open to the
community. The Canada Games Pool was bought
from the federal government by the City of New
Westminster which still represents the government,
but on the municipal level, “which the recreation
needs of the general public are directly addressed
through the offering of recreation services” (Lunn,
2020, p.5). It connects to recreation as we have
covered in this course through having space for
people to use as they please. They can use the
fitness centre or swim in one of the pools, and
exercise as a workout or for fun. You can choose to
sign-up for classes if you do not know how to use
the facilities or would like to improve your skills
(swimming lessons). These classes also cover the
area of coaching as you have a coach guiding you
through exercises and helping you do them
correctly, taking classes also represents physical
education as you are learning a skill.
The black and white image above is of the Canada Games Pool
back when it was first built for hosting the summer games in
1973 including an “Olympic-standard swimming and diving
pool” (Canada Games Pool, 2016).
4. Moody Park Arena – Uptown New Westminster
• This facility is an example of the public service
sector because it is open to the public on a
daily basis for “fitness, sport, age-related
programs, events, arts, leadership, etc.” (Lunn,
2020, p.3). At the Moody Park Arena you can
drop-in for public skating during the winter
months, although it is mainly used for sports
teams to practice and play games. Hockey
during the winter when the rink is filed with
ice, and lacrosse during the rest of the year.
This represents the physical education and
coaching ideas we have covered in this course
as many kids’ sports teams train and play here.
They are trained by coaches that help them
build athletic skills, which develops their
physical literacy through education in practices.
This image shows a group of kids before a skating lesson sitting on the
bench at the Moody Park Arena (Moody Park Arena, n.d.).
The Private Service
Sector
5. Sportball
6. Anytime Fitness
7. New West CrossFit
5. Sportball – Burnaby Mountain
• The Sportball program is an example of the private service sector because
it is independently owned, and in order to participate in classes you have
to pre-register for the class that is limited to specific ages. It is “based on
demand, high level training… [and] expected high quality” for the cost
(Lunn, 2020, p.6). This applies to the area of physical education as
covered in this course as they involve a group of kids learning how to play
multiple sports through a games-based approach. They also cover the
area of coaching as there are coaches to run all of the exercises and
activities helping the kids do them correctly and promote skill
development for each child.
The image above is of the Sportball logo as displayed on their website (Sportball, 2020).
6. Anytime Fitness – Royal City Centre, New Westminster
• This gym is an example of the private service
sector because it is independently owned (not
funded by the government), and in order to
use the facilities you must buy a membership.
Anytime Fitness is a 24-hour gym where
members have a key fob to enter the facility
for at minimum a monthly subscription.
Commercial services have the goal to make
money, they are “provided for a cost; profit
oriented” (Lunn, 2020, p.6). This business
connects to physical education as we have
covered in this course by providing a space for
members to workout independently
(improving physical fitness) or participate in
fitness classes included in their subscription to
the gym to help teach them new workouts or
guide their fitness journey.
The image above is of the Anytime Fitness logo as displayed on
their website (Anytime Fitness New Westminster, 2020).
7. New West CrossFit – Queensborough
• This gym is an example of the private service sector because
it is independently owned (not funded by the government),
and in order to use the facilities you must buy a membership.
The CrossFit gym is open daily and has different classes you
can follow with a trainer on days you choose or use they gym
to do your own workouts. The commercial sector “in sport
and recreation businesses, serve public good of some kind
(i.e., clearly not much “profit”) in order to retain control;
primarily for profit” (Lunn, 2020, p.6). The ‘public good’ in
this scenario is providing members with a sense of
community and promoting physical exercise. It relates to the
areas of physical education and coaching as we have covered
in this course by providing the environment for people to
build their fitness level and explore different exercises to
perform with great variety in equipment, and fitness
instructors available at all times to spot you and guide
through exercises to make sure you are performing them
safely.
The image above is of the CrossFit New West
logo as displayed on their website along with a
capture of a corner of their workout facility
featuring gym equipment (CrossFit New West,
n.d.).
The Non-Profit Service
Sector
8. Jumpstart
9. Special Olympics
10. Royal City Track and Field Club
8. Jumpstart – Surrey School District
• In my opinion, Jumpstart is the best example of a non-profit for promoting
physical education. As this is a large organization with many different
areas, I am focusing on the afterschool programs for elementary school
within the surrey school district as I have experienced it first-hand and
given back to the program as a coach. It targets a “SIG (Special interest
group) [, but] often becomes public good (which engages the local
government)… to generate enough profit to cover costs only” (Lunn, 2020,
p.8). The purpose of this program was to focus on at-risk youth in the
Surrey community and get them involved in sports programs afterschool,
so they do not hang out on the streets or with the wrong crowd with the
guidance of coaches. This relates to the areas of physical education as the
students were participating in weekly classes playing different sports and
developing skills for confidence in sports to encourage them to join a
team, be a part of something to feel they do not have to resort to “street
activities” such as drugs, alcohol, or making friends with the wrong crowd.
The program also provided snacks for the students that participated to
attract more numbers, as at-risk youth usually came from less fortunate
families that might not have brought a lunch to school or had parents
working late so would have to wait until later at night for a meal. It also
relates to the coaching sector as there are coaches for all of these
programs that are a role model to the students that promote healthy
lifestyle practices and allow the kids to play games and feel a part of
something with a positive learning environment.
The image above is of the Jumpstart logo as
displayed on their website (Jumpstart, 2020).
9. Special Olympics (Track and Field) – North Surrey
• The Special Olympics is a non-profit organization that provides the
opportunity for athletes with disabilities to participate in sports and
even reach competitive levels such as the actual Olympics world-wide
competition. The program does “rely on the efforts of members and
volunteers for sustained survival,” therefore if there are no people
who have disabilities that want to participate; the program will not
run (Lunn, 2020, p.10). I also have experience with assisting coaching
this program first-hand so my explanation will be based off my
experience with the Track and Field sport. The group of athletes from
all ages met once a week at a track and participate in practices run by
a professional coach to prepare for a competition at the end of the
season where they could qualify to move up and continue competing
at higher levels and even travel with the coach for events. This
program is run thanks to several volunteers and donations, it relates
to the physical education and coaching areas as covered in this course
because the practices are taught by a professional coach and focus on
development of the athletes to improve their physical literacy and
confidence in sport.
The image above is of the Special Olympics
logo as displayed on their website (Special
Olympics British Columbia, n.d.) along with a
screenshot of the schedule for the Track and
Field practices I received in an email last year
when I was a volunteer.
10. Royal City Track and Field Club – Uptown New Westminster
• This club is an example of a non-profit service sector
because the club does not make any profit, any money
made from “memberships & donations; user fees &
fundraising; corporate sponsorship,” fees to join the
team, or donations are put back into funding the club
with sports equipment, coaches, transport to events, and
registration fees, etc. (Lunn, 2020, p.9). It uses a public
space for practices at the Mercer Stadium and is run
mostly by volunteers. The club reflects areas of physical
education and coaching as we have covered in this course
as the athletes are coached in the club to develop running
and field event skills to prepare for competitions and
participating in physical education regularly when training
with the club.
The image above is of the RCTFC
logo as displayed on their
website featuring a crown as
that is the symbol for royalty as
the community “Royal City” of
New Westminster is commonly
called (Coutts, 2020).

Commercial services have the goal to make money, they are “provided for a cost; profit oriented” (Lunn, 2020, p.6). This business connects to physical education as we have covered in this course by providing a space for members to workout independently (improving physical fitness) or participate in fitness classes included in their subscription to the gym to help teach them new workouts or guide their fitness journey. The image above is of the Anytime Fitness logo as displayed on their website (Anytime Fitness New Westminster, 2020).
  • 10. 7. New West CrossFit – Queensborough • This gym is an example of the private service sector because it is independently owned (not funded by the government), and in order to use the facilities you must buy a membership. The CrossFit gym is open daily and has different classes you can follow with a trainer on days you choose or use they gym to do your own workouts. The commercial sector “in sport and recreation businesses, serve public good of some kind (i.e., clearly not much “profit”) in order to retain control; primarily for profit” (Lunn, 2020, p.6). The ‘public good’ in this scenario is providing members with a sense of community and promoting physical exercise. It relates to the areas of physical education and coaching as we have covered in this course by providing the environment for people to build their fitness level and explore different exercises to perform with great variety in equipment, and fitness instructors available at all times to spot you and guide through exercises to make sure you are performing them safely. The image above is of the CrossFit New West logo as displayed on their website along with a capture of a corner of their workout facility featuring gym equipment (CrossFit New West, n.d.).

  • 12. 8. Jumpstart – Surrey School District • In my opinion, Jumpstart is the best example of a non-profit for promoting physical education. As this is a large organization with many different areas, I am focusing on the afterschool programs for elementary school within the surrey school district as I have experienced it first-hand and given back to the program as a coach. It targets a “SIG (Special interest group) [, but] often becomes public good (which engages the local government)… to generate enough profit to cover costs only” (Lunn, 2020, p.8). The purpose of this program was to focus on at-risk youth in the Surrey community and get them involved in sports programs afterschool, so they do not hang out on the streets or with the wrong crowd with the guidance of coaches. This relates to the areas of physical education as the students were participating in weekly classes playing different sports and developing skills for confidence in sports to encourage them to join a team, be a part of something to feel they do not have to resort to “street activities” such as drugs, alcohol, or making friends with the wrong crowd. The program also provided snacks for the students that participated to attract more numbers, as at-risk youth usually came from less fortunate families that might not have brought a lunch to school or had parents working late so would have to wait until later at night for a meal. It also relates to the coaching sector as there are coaches for all of these programs that are a role model to the students that promote healthy lifestyle practices and allow the kids to play games and feel a part of something with a positive learning environment. The image above is of the Jumpstart logo as displayed on their website (Jumpstart, 2020).
  • 13. 9. Special Olympics (Track and Field) – North Surrey • The Special Olympics is a non-profit organization that provides the opportunity for athletes with disabilities to participate in sports and even reach competitive levels such as the actual Olympics world-wide competition. The program does “rely on the efforts of members and volunteers for sustained survival,” therefore if there are no people who have disabilities that want to participate; the program will not run (Lunn, 2020, p.10). I also have experience with assisting coaching this program first-hand so my explanation will be based off my experience with the Track and Field sport. The group of athletes from all ages met once a week at a track and participate in practices run by a professional coach to prepare for a competition at the end of the season where they could qualify to move up and continue competing at higher levels and even travel with the coach for events. This program is run thanks to several volunteers and donations, it relates to the physical education and coaching areas as covered in this course because the practices are taught by a professional coach and focus on development of the athletes to improve their physical literacy and confidence in sport. The image above is of the Special Olympics logo as displayed on their website (Special Olympics British Columbia, n.d.) along with a screenshot of the schedule for the Track and Field practices I received in an email last year when I was a volunteer.
  • 14. 10. Royal City Track and Field Club – Uptown New Westminster • This club is an example of a non-profit service sector because the club does not make any profit, any money made from “memberships & donations; user fees & fundraising; corporate sponsorship,” fees to join the team, or donations are put back into funding the club with sports equipment, coaches, transport to events, and registration fees, etc. (Lunn, 2020, p.9). It uses a public space for practices at the Mercer Stadium and is run mostly by volunteers. The club reflects areas of physical education and coaching as we have covered in this course as the athletes are coached in the club to develop running and field event skills to prepare for competitions and participating in physical education regularly when training with the club. The image above is of the RCTFC logo as displayed on their website featuring a crown as that is the symbol for royalty as the community “Royal City” of New Westminster is commonly called (Coutts, 2020).
