GAME ON: A national celebration of sport

The second annual celebration of sport, from grassroots to high-performance levels, is in communities across the country on Nov. 30.

Although it is still a month away, you will want to mark your calendars for this year’s Sports Day Canada event. The second annual national celebration of sport, from grassroots to high-performance levels, is in communities across the country on November 30. The newly RBC sponsored event at the NDCC will be brought to you by ParticipACTION, CBC and True Sport. Like last year, it will be kicked off, on Friday, November 29 with National Jersey Day to show your love and support for sport.

Wear a jersey, team or club uniform to school, work or play and donate a $1 to the local KidSport chapter while you’re doing it. Challenge your council members, office workers, teachers and classrooms across our region to better each other in this great big sea of Canadians wearing our hearts on our sleeves.

The Saturday, November 30 event at the NDCC, runs from 2 to 5 p.m. and will have free skating, curling, shinny and many other off-ice sports to try it out around the facility. You won’t want to miss the fun!

The Whitewater Ski Team’s 22nd annual Ski Swap takes place Sunday, November 3 at Hume School from 12:30 to 3 p.m. Buy and sell your skis, boots, boards and clothing. If the idea of rocker, side cuts and twin tips makes you dizzy, don’t worry. Knowledgeable floor staff will be on hand to help buyers find the right gear and the best deal.

Sellers can bring gear between 9 and 11 a.m.  The team takes 20 per cent on all sold items, $3 per unsold item to a maximum of $10.  Pick up and payout is between 4:30 and 6 p.m.

For more information about the ski swap or to inquire about ski racing programs for skiers of all ages  contact presidentwh2oskiteam@gmail.com

Kootenay Christian Martial Arts hosted a fabulous demonstration of their sport and art last year at the Sports Day event and is planning to attend again this year.

Perhaps it’s time you tried it out! The club is  holding its annual Black Belt graduation November 14 at 6:30 p.m. at St. Joe’s school gym where the  public is welcome to come and experience Tae Kwon Do and the celebration of 15 students becoming new black belts and seven others promoted to 2nd Dan.

Demonstrations include board and concrete breaking — world class grandmasters in attendance.
