The seventh annual Xplore Sport Day, Red Deer’s celebration of sport, is happening Saturday, May 13, 2023 from 9 a.m. – 2 p.m.. The event happens in conjunction with the Red Deer PCN Fun Run and is held primarily at Capstone Canada 150 Square and select satellite locations throughout the city.
The event is an opportunity for children to try out sports without registering for a full season. Guests are encouraged to visit the website to find information on which sporting groups are participating, and where.
“We are excited to bring the sport and recreation community together with Red Deerians once again this spring,” says PJ Swales, Sport & Recreation Coordinator. “Showcasing opportunities for healthy living, fun and activity allows us to benefit the community and our local sport and recreation organizations at the same time. This ideal is further highlighted by our continued partnership with the Red Deer PCN Fun Run.”
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.
Each year, Xplore Sport Day includes the presentation of the Rising Sport Star awards. These awards are presented to athletes aged 12 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.
