Sport Discovery Community Try-It! Programs
Sport Discovery Community Try-It! programs offer chances to try a new sport or physical activity. Try-It! 40+ recreation programs are adapted for older patrons and feature low-impact activities designed to ease participants back into an active lifestyle. Events run from 60 to 90 minutes and are led by qualified and experienced coaches and staff.
All Try-It! programs are free of charge and do not require participants to live in the Community Association area where an event is hosted. Some programs may require pre-registration.

About the Programs
Try-It! is a partnership between the City of Prince George, Engage Sport North, and PG's Community Associations. Try-It! 40+ programs for older participants are funded through a UBCM age-friendly community grant. The City of Prince George applied to receive funds to enhance programs that are part of its Age-Friendly Action Plan. The City receives applications from local community associations and senior centres in Prince George and distributes funds to go towards adults 40+ and seniors' recreation programs.
