Sport4Life Cochrane has put out the call to all local recreation and sports organizations to be part of a month-long showcase of free try-it sessions.
Throughout June, the nonprofit organization is coordinating a series of free sessions for youth ages 6 to 18 years old of all skills and abilities.
They will coordinate, schedule, and promoting the sessions, and will establish a central registration process for families to sign up.
Genevieve Boivin, Sport4Life Cochrane program coordinator, says they want to help organizations come together so youth can explore different sports safely in June.
"It's an opportunity for families to have their kids try something new, something different. We know sometimes it's hard to commit to something with money and time when you're not absolutely sure if your kids are going to be in love with it. So, this is definitely an opportunity for the kids to get to know the sports, be in contact with coaches, and also the culture of the sport, to make up their minds as to whether they're going to love it or not."
In 2019, they held an all-sport day but took a different approach this year to work with COVID-19 restrictions.
"We thought if we do it over the space of a month, in multiple locations and smaller groups, we can still do something while keeping everybody safe."
The registration deadline for sports organizations is Apr. 28 so families can start signing up in mid-May.
