It will be a sports expo for Clearwater.
District of Clearwater will be hosting “Everybody Gets To Play”, its first all sports and recreation registration day, at the Sportsplex on Wednesday, April 3, 4 – 7 p.m.
“We’re inviting all sports and recreation groups to take a table in the curling club lounge,” said Melody Romeo, the District’s sports coordinator. “We already have groups like the soccer club, minor ball, slow pitch, Girl Guides, and Special Olympics. Minor hockey and ladies’ hockey will be there as well, in order to get exposure. People will be able to walk around and see what’s offered in town, whether it’s swim lessons, summer camp, or licensed childcare.”
Activities open for registration will include spring and summer sports organized by District of Clearwater, such as swimming lessons, drop-in basketball, youth and adult mountain biking, and drop-in soccer, said Eleanor Collins, the community recreation/healthy living coordinator.
Similar registration days have been held in other communities such as Salmon Arm and 100 Mile House, Romeo and Collins said.
If it proves a success here, the plan is to hold a similar event in the fall.
If that proves a success, then the registration day will turn into a bi-annual event.
