Team spirit was high at the Nelson Curling Club during Sports Day.

Try it day in Nelson

Curling, indoor soccer, skating, squash and breaking bricks were all part of National Sports Day in Nelson today.

Today was a day to get sporty. It’s national Sports Day in Canada and Try It Day in Nelson. Kim Palfenier, executive director of Nelson Sports Council said they opened this year’s sports day up to two days with Jersey Day on Friday.  It’s the third year for the event, which she said has been different every year.

The indoor soccer facility hosted various sports such as soccer, bocce, skipping and dry land Nordic skiing at their open house as did the squash club and the curling club.

Curlers were in full costume for the fun times with teams like Anthropomorphic Dancing Dinosaurs sending rocks down the ice.

The Nelson Tae Kwon Do Club gave curling a try before a demonstration of breaking bricks and pieces of wood with their bare hands.

The Nelson and District Community Complex offered a loonie/toonie shinny, skate or swim later in the afternoon.
