Day of sports to showcase local athletics to kids

A day of sports is quickly approaching a city that prides itself on being energetic. On Saturday, September 22, PacificSport Northern B.C. will be hosting its first one-day SportZ Xtravaganza, an event offering exposure to a variety of sports within Fort St. John.

The program, which is in conjunction with CBC’s Sports Day in Canada, will provide people of all ages, ranging from youth to adult, the opportunity to not only learn about, but also try a number of sports offered within the community.

The program will be making its Fort St. John debut following its success in Prince George last year.

Exposure to these sports is important for athletic development, especially because many will be events at the upcoming 2015 Winter Games.

Jennifer Gibson, Sport Development Coordinator for PacificSport Northern B.C. says the program will provide children with valuable insight into the sporting community.

"Hopefully it's going to expose kids to different sports which will then introduce them to the sport organizations and the sport groups within the community, who will gain more exposure."

The various sports being featured in this unique campaign include soccer, speed skating, hockey, curling and wheelchair basketball.

Programs will be taking place all across town Saturday, with activities taking place at the Pomeroy Sport Centre, the Fort St. John Curling Club, Kids Arena Fieldhouse, as well as North Peace Secondary School.

Gibson says the event has received lots of positive feedback from the sporting organizations within the communities the program has taken place in.

The day will begin at 10 a.m. and will run until 3 p.m. and all of the activities are free of charge. Participation will run on a first come, first serve basis, while the Lace Em’ Up hockey program requires pre-registration.

Pre-registration can be done by calling the FSJ Minor Hockey Association at 250-787-7133, emailing or picking up a form from the front desk of the Pomeroy Sport Centre.

A full schedule of the day’s events is available on the link provided.
