Try sports free this weekend in Cowichan

Recreation centres throughout the Cowichan Valley will be offering opportunities to try out and play a wide range of sports for free this Friday, Saturday and Sunday as part of Jersey Day and RBC Sports Day in Canada.

Friday’s Jersey Day events will include free public skating at several local arenas for anyone wearing a sports jersey. Free skating will run at Fuller Lake Arena from 1:30-3 p.m. and again from 6:40-8 p.m., at the Cowichan Lake Sports Arena from 11 a.m. to 12:50 p.m. The Island Savings Centre will offer two options on Saturday, with a free public skate in the Cowichan Arena from 1-2:20 p.m. and free drop-in sports in the Multi-Purpose Hall from noon to 3 p.m. Drop-in sports will include pickleball, basketball, badminton and more. The ISC is also working with the Heart and Stroke Foundation to offer a free training session for adult CPR and the use of AEDs.

Kerry Park Arena will hold a free skate for anyone wearing a sports jersey on Sunday from 1-2:15 p.m. "All the facilities are proud to be able to provide these opportunities to the community," said ISC programs and events coordinator Jamie Rigby. "This is an annual event that is part of a combined effort, across the recreation centres, to promote physical activity and well-being for all residents of the Cowichan Valley."
