Prince George, B.C. – So you think you might like to try  a new sport,  but  don’t want to fork out the registration fees  just in  case  you don’t like it?  Well the City of Prince George, together with  Engage Sport North and  local Community Associations, is  launching a program that lets  you ‘Try It’  without  obligation.

21 “Sport Discovery Try It!”  sessions  will be presented from September 2017 to June 2018. These sessions are open to most age groups, offered at no cost, and registration is not required.

The first  Sport Discovery Try It! sessions  focus on archery and soccer:

Archery  September 13, 6:00-7:30pm at Beverley Elementary school fields. Participants must be at least 10 years old
Soccer  September 27, 6:00-7:30pm at Hart Highlands elementary school fields
No registration is required and there is no cost to participate.
“We are excited to give residents in our area an opportunity to try physical activities they would not have previously considered or had the opportunity to try” says Kristi Francis, Chair of the Hart Community Association.
Engage Sport North is working with local sports organizations to provide coaching and equipment for each session, while the Prince George community associations are identifying the various sports and presenting them in various locations.
More information about upcoming Sport Discovery Try It! sessions is available at princegeorge.ca/CommunityAssociations, the City’s event calendar at calendar.princegeorge.ca, or on the Engage Sport North website at engagesportnorth.com.
