What is All Sport One Day?

All Sport One Day is a FREE day of sport discovery for children. Sport Calgary has partnered with over 40 sport organizations and 11 facility partners to allow over 2000 children to participate in this great event. The reason for this day is to connect families with facilities and programs, help children and their families to become more active by making these connections and to raise awareness around the importance of Physical Literacy and the Canadian Sport for Life framework.

Sport Descriptions

Athletics
Our Athletics program consists of indoor training as well as outdoor competition. This is a great opportunity to get a taste for a small variety of the events you see at the Summer Olympics. We will be focusing on long jump, running and shot put, giving kids the opportunity to develop strength and speed in a fun way!

Bowling

Similar to the sport you see in leisure alleys, you will get to practice your skills by throwing the bowling ball and knocking over the pins.  While it can be simple to learn, there are several ways to improve your game by learning some tips and techniques.


Floor Curling
A great introduction to the sport of curling. It promotes flexibility, increased range of motion and circulation as participants try to get their rock closest to the button. You get to practice your finesse draw weight or throw the heavy take outs just like Kevin Martin! The equipment has been specially designed to allow participants of all abilities to compete on a level playing field. Pusher sticks allow anyone who cannot bend to floor level to deliver the stones with ease. Perfect for wheelchair participants!

Floor Hockey
Floor Hockey is a great sport for males and females who love to run and is played similar to the game of Ringette. There is a straight stick used to shoot and we pass a ring which allows development of hand-eye coordination. We will work on practicing your stick handling, stopping the ring and shooting at targets.  This is a good opportunity to learn some new skills.


Obstacle Course
There will be a variety of activities designed to promote the development of motor skills. This mini obstacle course will give a fun flare on working on balance, coordination, and fundamental movements.
