Residents are invited to learn about sports in our community at the city’s second annual Sports Day in Brampton on April 6.
This event is for anyone looking to get active, connect with minor sports groups in Brampton, or try new sports and activities.
Free drop-in sports include gymnastics, softball, baseball, lacrosse, kabaddi, cricket, soccer, track, wheelchair basketball, hockey, swimming and more. They will take place from 10 am to 4 pm at the Brampton Soccer Centre and Cassie Campbell Community Centre.
“Brampton has a rich sports history of fostering outstanding athletes and dedicated sports fans. Playing sports is a great way to have fun, make friends and maintain an active, healthy lifestyle. Sports Day in Brampton encourages young people to explore different options and find a sport they enjoy,” said Brampton Mayor Patrick Brown.
Programming is provided by the city, its affiliated youth sports organizations, the Brampton Sport Alliance and other community sport providers. Families are invited to connect with local minor sport groups, and learn more about their programs and the wide variety of activities available across Brampton.
Attendees will also have the opportunity to enter a draw to win a prize when they collect three stamps at the event – one for each sport they try that day.
Brampton has more than 268 indoor and outdoor sports fields, 30 recreation facilities, 15 ice pads, 13 swimming pools, seven fitness centres, four outdoor skating rinks, one 9-hole public golf course and one ski hill. There are 20 youth sports affiliate groups with 20,000 participants, and 80 adult community groups, in Brampton.
