Brampton youth who love sports or just want to get out there and be part of the community are invited to join in on this yearly tradition.

In partnership with the Brampton Sport Alliance, the city is hosting its annual Sports Day on Saturday, Feb. 25 at the Save Max Sports Centre at Dixie and Sandalwood.

The free event encourages young people of all ages and skill levels to come try a variety of sports, engage with program leaders, and register for the upcoming season.

Nearly a dozen sports groups will be in attendance to offer information on a variety of spring and summer sports, including baseball, lacrosse, soccer, track and field, hockey, football and basketball.

Sports Day happens from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. on the 25th.

Brampton mayor Patrick Brown says the event is about much more than just sports.

“We know being part of a team builds resilience, creates a sense of belonging and teaches essential life skills,” said the mayor.

Sports Day will encourage participants to try multiple sports by giving visitors a passport which will be stamped for each sport they try. Those who collect three or more stamps will be entered into a draw to win prizes.

Connecting young people with a new passion is vital to the overall wellbeing of our city. We are so passionate about creating opportunities for success and this event offers just that,” said regional councillor Rowena Santos.

The event is free to attend and no registration is required.
