Sports day has a scary amount on of­fer

Harvey-Waroona Reporter - - NEWS -

WHILE many shy away from the no­to­ri­ous Fri­day the 13th, Har­vey Recre­ation and Cul­tural Cen­tre is em­brac­ing it with a Spooky Sports Day as part of cel­e­bra­tions for WA Youth Week.

Cen­tre man­ager David Mar­shall said the day would take on a spooky theme with dec­o­ra­tions and games as well as a range of sports to try.

En­try is free with the event kick­ing off at 4pm and run­ning through to 8pm, as part of WA Youth Week which runs from April 13 to 24.

Mr Mar­shall said the main aim of the day was to of­fer the 15 to 25 age group sports they might not have tried be­fore.

Vol­ley­ball, ta­ble ten­nis, bad­minton and bas­ket­ball will all be avail­able as well as other sports equip­ment to have a go at.

“We’re of­fer­ing the age group a range of dif­fer­ent sports they haven’t done be­fore,” Mr Mar­shall said.

He said some­thing new would be hap­pen­ing ev­ery hour in­clud­ing a big group fit­ness ses­sion with mu­sic and dance moves.

“Each hour there will be some­thing dif­fer­ent,” he said.

Af­ter the day events there will be games with prizes avail­able, fin­ish­ing the night with food and drink.

“We’ll be fin­ish­ing up with a col­lec­tive cel­e­bra­tion of Youth Week,” he said.

It was hoped in­ter­est in new sports on the day could lead to sim­i­lar events be­com­ing reg­u­lar ac­tiv­i­ties or com­pe­ti­tions.

“Our hope is that it leads on to some­thing else, like maybe a vol­ley­ball com­pe­ti­tion start­ing,” he said.
