Saturday offered an opportunity for Langley Events Centre patrons to try out new things.
For some, those new things may have included figure skating, martial arts, basketball, and fencing.
It was all part of RBC Sports Day in Canada, which offered “try-it” events to visitors from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. inside the LEC gymnasium and on the arena bowl’s ice surface.
Organizer Stephanie Eby, senior recreation programmer with the Township of Langley, said the focus was for everyone taking part to try out at least one sport that was new to them.
“The goal is to promote grassroots level of sports, so everybody knows how to get started,” Eby said.
All those who attended received a free ticket to a Langley Rivermen home game.
Skate and helmet rentals were free for those who wanted to go out on the ice.
Organizers included Langley Township, Langley City, Ten Feet Sports and Entertainment, and PacificSport Fraser Valley.
