Sports programs geared to children

Sports enthusiasts on the Island are being sought to deliver three programs to elementary school children.

Sharing Our Activities and Resources and, initiative developed by Tennis B.C., B.C. Golf and Curl B.C., delivers three programs in schools that encourage students to be more active.

These non-profit groups are recruiting individuals who want to deliver three SOAR programs in elementary classrooms – a gym-based curling game for six-12-year-olds; a basic golf skills program and a tennis program for younger students that uses mini racquets and foam balls.

Training takes place Dec. 9-12 at Hammond Bay Elementary School.

Cost is $50 for the classroom instruction on Dec. 9, but participants are remunerated for each of the practical application days following.
