The sixth annual Xplore Sport Day, Red Deer’s celebration of sport, is happening Saturday, May 7, 2022 from 9 a.m. – 2 p.m. This event happens in conjunction with the Red Deer PCN Fun Run and is held primarily at Capstone Canada 150 Square and in select satellite locations throughout the city.
The event is a free, family friendly celebration of sport that offers Red Deerians of all ages opportunities to try out a variety of sport and recreation activities available in our city.
“We know that the past few years have created some barriers to participation, so we are excited to showcase the many amazing opportunities for sport and recreation in our city,” says PJ Swales, Sport & Recreation Coordinator. “Working with the Red Deer PCN Fun Run allows us to highlight not only their contribution to recreation, but the contributions of the 28 participating community groups as well.” Swales continues, “we’re pleased to host Red Deerians in some of our amazing local venues like Canada 150 Square in Capstone, Red Deer Pickleball Club at Agora Campus, Great West Adventure Park, Setters Place at Great Chief Park, and the Skatepark at the Northside YMCA.”
Experience sport like never before! This is your opportunity to discover a sport that works for you or your child, without registering for a full season first! Guests are encouraged to visit the website to find information on which sporting groups are participating, what they are offering on-site, and their demo locations.
Each year, Xplore Sport Day includes the presentation of the Rising Sport Star awards. These awards are presented to athletes aged 11 years or younger who participate in a Red Deer sport organization and have demonstrated commitment, passion, effort or who have overcome adversity to successfully participate and develop skills, regardless of result. We are excited to bring back the Rising Sport Star awards to this year’s event.
