The ultimate frisbee tournament is coming back to Nelson this summer.

Summer a time of action in Nelson

Summer camps are plentiful in Nelson and area. A list, flyer and information can be found on the Nelson Regional Sports Council website

It’s arrived. Exams done, papers marked, lunch bag stashed away. It’s time to collect your lost and found and head outside for two whole months of play time. It applies to us working folks too, as June allows us to look forward to the dog days of summer to relax, visit with guests and do the things we enjoy as well. It’s all good.


Summer camps are plentiful in Nelson and area. A list, flyer and information can be found on the Nelson Regional Sports Council website for camp for registration information.


The Kootenay Swim Club is in its final month of the season and will be off for the months of July and August and restarting the 2012-2013 season in September. The club is currently taking resumes for the head coach and assistant coach positions. If you are interested in coaching go to and click on the head coach job description for details. In the meantime, the swimmers will be attending AA’s and AAA’s long course swim meets before age group nationals in July. We wish the swimmers the best of luck.


The Nelson Ultimate Frisbee Association is proud to be reviving a once popular ultimate frisbee tournament this summer. Without organizers for the past nine years, the tournament had fallen to the wayside, but this summer it will be back in action and bigger than ever. The Disc Break event will be held July 21 and 22 at Lakeside playing fields. Check out for more info. Throughout the summer, the Nelson frisbee fanatics meet at Lakeside every Thursday evening from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. and Sunday from 4 to 6 p.m. to play pick up ultimate. All skill levels are welcome. New recruits are always welcome so go out and join them in a good old fashioned run around.


Having visitors arriving over the summer? A visit to the newly minted Nelson Sports Museum may be the perfect activity on a less sunny or very hot day. Housed at the Civic and NDCC arenas, the sports museum exhibits are full of local hockey, skating and lacrosse memorabilia dating back before the Civic (built 1935) even came to life. It is an authentic collection of photos, sport artifacts and historic audio of game play by play for sport enthusiasts, historians and returning Nelsonites to enjoy. Open July 6 to August 31 with hours Friday and Saturday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Tuesday to Thursday by appointment through the Sports Council at 250-352-3989. Admission free or by donation.


Have a great summer everyone.
