Pickleball anyone? How about Ringette? Or Waterpolo? Try it day

P 16 Water-PoloTo mark this year’s RBC Sports Day in Canada — a national celebration of sport — the Sunshine Coast Regional District (SCRD) is hosting “Sports Week” from November 21 to 29.

“We are thrilled to be part of RBC Sports Day in Canada,” says Adrianne Gadd, SCRD Recreation Program Coordinator. “The Sunshine Coast Regional District has a long tradition of supporting its local sports teams and clubs. Sport and recreation is great for our community and is something we can all get behind.”

With funding from the RBC Sports day in Canada grant, the SCRD is hosting a series of free “try it” sports activities for youth and all ages which include, Ultimate Frisbee, Water Polo, Pickleball, Field Lacrosse, Ringette, and Dance Pl3y.

On November 22, a sport fair will take place at the Sunshine Coast Arena from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. where local sports clubs will be presenting and providing information about their programs. Schedules and additional information are available at

“Sport participation is on the decline in Canada, particularly among youth aged 15 to 18. Celebrations such as RBC Sports Day in Canada are a great way for individuals to get moving and they act as a great reminder to participate in sport on a daily basis.” says Gadd

According to Canada’s Physical Activity Guidelines, only five per cent of Canadian children and youth exercise 60 minutes per day and only 15 per cent of adults get the recommended 150 minutes per week of activity.
