Welcome to the All Terrain Vehicle Association of Nova Scotia
The All-Terrain Vehicle Association of Nova Scotia’s vision is that riding an ATV is recognized as a responsible, safe, fun and family recreation activity that can be enjoyed throughout the Province. In recognition of our Vision we are pleased to announce that in Nova Scotia and across Canada provincial ATV riders federations will be celebrating ATV safety week during the week of June 3rd-10th.
During this week and indeed every week we ask riders to ride in a safe responsible manner. Our sport offers families in Nova Scotia a great opportunity to get outdoors year around and enjoy the great trails developed by our clubs and members.
“Riding an ATV is a proven way to get healthy exercise and enjoy our great outdoors.” said Vince Sawler President ATVANS. “With over 40 clubs and thousands of members we feel it is our mandate to help deliver the message of safe responsible ATV use in Nova Scotia”
During ATV safety week ATVANS and our member clubs will be handing out 15% discount coupons while supplies last, to be used toward ATV safety training during the 2017 training season. These coupons can be redeemed through participating trainers and further information on how to obtain a coupon can be found on the ATVANS website at www.atvans.org
ATVANS will be launching the 2017 ATV safety week with our partners at a public launch in Amherst this year in association with our local club Cumberland County Riders. CCR has helped organize a public safety event at Amherst Center Mall 142 South Albion Street, Amherst, NS. The event will run from 10a.m. to 4p.m. on Saturday June 3rd and will include other safety concerned partners. Glenn Hudson president of Cumberland County Riders and safety advocate "For me it’s all about safety, education raises our awareness better preparing us to meet any hazard we encounter on the trail."
There will be static displays local law enforcement, trainers and ATVANS officials to answer questions. Media, elected officials and members of the public are invited to attend. Visitors to the event will also be able to view the be able to view the Yamaha Grizzly being given away this year to one of our lucky members in a random draw simply for being a member. The Yamaha give away is in recognition of our 20th year representing the organized responsible ATV rider in Nova Scotia.
