What is Sports Day in Canada? Sports Day in Canada is a new national event that celebrates sport at all levels across Canada. Using the model that CBC created for Hockey Day in Canada and building off the momentum of the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Games, Sports Day in Canada is an opportunity to showcase all manner of sports, while mobilizing the nation in the power of being active. Sports Day in Canada will be the culmination of a week (September 11-18, 2010) of sporting events and festivals, celebrating grassroots sport stories, engaging citizens in physical activity and rallying local organizations to provide participatory opportunities in communities across Canada.

Join schools across the nation by engaging your class in a Canadian movement of physical activity. Participate in this national event by hosting your own very special Canada Games Day at your school! The Canada Games Day offers all young participants an exciting, full-day sports and educational experience that mirrors the Canada Games. The objective of Canada Games Days is to promote physical education while increasing participants’ awareness of their country and of the Canada Games. Canada Games Days are being organized by schools like yours all across Canada!

Make this day your own! The day could be comprised of an opening ceremonies, a pep rally, team competitions in different sport activities throughout the day and a closing ceremonies. Teams can creatively represent Canadian provinces and territories in challenging events and activities.

Your Canada Games Day Kit will serve as a comprehensive tool that immerses young participants in a great day of physical activity that mirrors the thrill, sense of achievement, and excitement of the nationally celebrated Canada Games. The kit offers a step-by-step program to help you organize and implement a memorable sporting event, and perhaps inspire a future Canada Games Athlete!
