Adults 20+ Try or Re-Try Sports
Calling All Adults! Ages 20+
Have you ever thought it might be fun to try a sport or activity you’ve never tried before? Or maybe a sport you used to play, but haven’t in years? Do you want to be happier and healthier (and recognize that regular exercise is a great way to get there)? Maybe you feel anxious about going to a fitness facility, gym or arena? What if you could try out an activity or visit fitness facilities with other people who feel the same way you do? Not experts – just regular people who want to try out a new sport, or rediscover an old one. And what if all this fun was 100% FREE?
All Sport One City is an initiative of Sport Calgary in partnership with The City of Calgary to provide an opportunity for adults to come and discover one or two activities at various facilities throughout the city, absolutely free of charge. These activities will be taking place during the day or evenings of November 16 to 20 and all day Saturday, November 21, (RBC Sports Day in Canada).
Multi-sport facilities in Calgary are offering a wide variety of free introductory activities on Saturday, and numerous single sport facilities offering opportunities to try an activity Monday through Friday.
There are tons of activities, and you are certain to find something that appeals to you! Remember, all ages 20 and above are welcome, and there are many activities that will appeal as well to the 55+ crowd. (Some facilities even offer child care while you go play!) Go to AllSportOneCity.ca for a full list of activities and locations, and register to attend sessions in one easy step.
The possibilities are endless and we invite you to register for a few activities of your choice to be active during the week of November 16 to 21. Who knows? Maybe you will have so much fun you will want to keep coming back!
