FROM THE ED­I­TOR

Kayak (Canada) - - CONTENTS -

Whether you love to play a sport, pre­fer to watch, or don’t think you’re in­ter­ested, we prom­ise you’ll en­joy this is­sue of Kayak. It’s all about Canada's favourite sports and the peo­ple who play them.

Some of those peo­ple train and play for the love of their sport — they don’t earn their liv­ing do­ing it. They are called am­a­teurs. Peo­ple who get paid to play are called pro­fes­sion­als. For in­stance, some­one who com­petes in the Par­a­lympics or the North Amer­i­can In­dige­nous Games is an ama­teur. Some­one who plays for the Van­cou­ver Canucks or Toronto Blue Jays is a pro­fes­sional.

But sports aren’t just for se­ri­ous ath­letes. There are lots of ways or­di­nary peo­ple can stay ac­tive and have fun — swim­ming and bik­ing in sum­mer, cross-coun­try ski­ing and skat­ing in win­ter. So read up on sports, but don’t spend too much time sit­ting still. We hope this is­sue will also in­spire you to go out­side or to the pool, gym, com­mu­nity cen­tre or wher­ever, and get mov­ing!
