Calling all Canadians – the fourth annual Sports Day in Canada will take place on November 30, 2013!
Sports Day in Canada, presented by ParticipACTION, CBC and True Sport, will be held this year on Saturday, November 30 in communities from coast to coast to coast. This national celebration of sport, from grassroots to high-performance, is an opportunity for all Canadians to celebrate the power of sport, build community and national spirit and facilitate healthy, active living.
You’re invited to participate in this celebration in the week leading up to, and including, November 30, when local organizations, communities and schools in B.C. and across Canada will throw open their doors to celebrate sport at the local level and help build momentum for Sports Day in Canada. Events include community-wide festivals, try-it days, open houses, games, competitions, meet-and-greets, tournaments, fun runs, spectator events and pep rallies that celebrate sport at all levels.
We encourage you to get your community, club, school or organization involved by hosting a Sports Day in Canada event. Plan something new, or register something you’re already doing and invite the public to join you. We’ll support you with an event manual and promotional tools on our website (posters, eblasts, media kit). Plus, if you register your event online you may receive a free Celebration Kit that includes materials such as banners, tattoos and posters.
You will receive an email from us when event registration is available online. In the meantime, please direct any questions to Vanessa Smit at ParticipACTION at vsmit@participACTION.com or visit our website to learn more.
Let’s come together this November for the love of the game!
