Welcome to the Zatzman Sportsplex!

PAY WHAT YOU CAN MEMBERSHIPS

The Zatzman Sportsplex has a limited number of Pay What You Can memberships available by referral only. If you're interested in one of these memberships, please ask a caseworker, social worker, or community service agency representative to email Blayne at blayne.robinson@halifax.ca with the referral form found below. If you are a caseworker, social worker, or community service agency representative who's interested in referring someone, please see the information sheet below and download the form.

The Pay What You Can membership, originally the Thrive program, is a program for community members who are looking to participate in a healthy and active lifestyle but can not afford a regular membership. This program is not meant for people who are looking for a cheaper membership who are able to purchase a regular membership. 

Please Note: Payment amount is determined by the applicant however the monthly amount must be greater than $0/month.

How to Get A PWYC Membership

  1. Contact your referrer about the program. A doctor, caseworker, social worker, or community service agency can apply on your behalf. Sportsplex staff can not apply or fill out a form on anyone's behalf.
  2. The applicant and referrer should carefully read through the FAQ and application form together.
  3. Complete the application form completely, this includes the amount the applicant is able to pay per month. The PWYC membership is not a free membership.
  4. The referrer should send the application via email to blayne.robinson@halifax.ca.
  5. The Sportsplex will contact the referrer as the application has been processed.
  6. Once the referrer is contacted, they should relay this information to the applicant along with all steps the applicant needs to take to activate their membership.
  7. PWYC Members must actively use their membership, or risk being removed from the program.

  2. Agreeing to act as a contact point between the Sportsplex and application. All information the applicant needs to know about starting their membership will be sent through you.

PLEASE NOTE THE FOLLOWING:

We only allot a finite number of PWYC Memberships at a time.

Because of this, as other PWYC Memberships expire, new ones are added.  

This means that it may take some time between when this referral is submitted to when it is processed as we wait for a PWYC to expire

Referrals are processed in order of submission.

Our PWYC Memberships require approval; a referral does not necessarily mean your client will receive a Membership.

PLEASE INFORM YOUR CLIENT THAT IT MAY TAKE UP TO A YEAR FOR THEIR REFERRAL TO BE PROCESSED
