Sport Discovery Try It! Program
Twenty-one Sport Discovery Try It! programs will be offered from September 2017 to June 18 as the result of a partnership between the City of Prince George, Engage Sport North, and PG's Community Associations. Try It! provides opportunities to try a new sport or physical activity. Sessions run from 60 to 90 minutes and are led by qualified and experienced coaches and Engage Sport North staff.
These programs are free and participants do not have to live in the Community Association area where an event is hosted. Some programs may require online pre-registration.
