Vernon competes for the most active
Vernon joined a national challenge to find Canada’s most active community.
Residents are encouraged to take action for ParticipACTION Canada’s most active community challenge.
You can download the ParticipACTION app and create a profile to start adding your minutes to the Vernon total. For the month of June, all active minutes count towards the challenge, including walking the dog, housework and gardening.
To encourage kids to participate, between June 1 and June 30, Recreation Services is offering Toonie Try It sports sessions as an opportunity for kids to try out a new sport or activity for a few dollars.
“We are very happy to be able to offer 5 to 12 year olds the opportunity to get active and try something new!” says recreation programmer Tima Coad. “We are grateful to have incredible partners like BottMan Sports and Rosters Sports Club, who donate their time and facilities to share their passion for the sport as part of the campaign.”
Sessions will be available for registration up to 48 hours before each time slot. Sports include squash, racquetball, tennis, pickleball, and beach volleyball.
To register for Toonie Try It sessions, visit gvrec.ca and select Programs and Activities, then choose your sport to begin your adventure.
Enderby was crowned Canada’s Most Active Community in the inaugural ParticipACTION Challenge in 2019.
