Our House is Your House

Northern BC residents sought for school sports program

Sports enthusiasts from Prince George and the surrounding area are being recruited to work with elementary-school-age children to encourage them to be more active.

The recruits will be paid for their time once they have been trained and pass a criminal record check.

SOAR (Sharing Our Activities and Resources) is an initiative developed by Tennis BC, British Columbia Golf and Curl BC.
The not-for-profit groups are recruiting individuals to be trained in the delivery of three sports programs.

Residents who want to get involved with their community and promote active living should sign up for the training program being offered. Completion of the training program as well as a criminal record check is a prerequisite to working with SOAR.

The instructors will run:

  • The Curling Canada Rocks & Rings program, which is a gym-based curling game for 6 to 12-year-olds.
  • The Playground to Fairway (P2F) School Golf program, which introduces basic golf skills to school-age children with a focus on fun.
  • The Learn & Play program, a fun tennis program aimed at younger children which uses mini racquets and foam balls.
  • Training will take place at Blackburn Elementary School in Prince George from Sunday, February 21, at 10 a.m. and continues until Wednesday, February 24, until 2:30 p.m. The cost for all three training modules is $50.

    Participants must register in advance. Visit http://www.curlbc.ca/soar-instructor-training-pg-2/ before February 18 to register.

    For inquiries about the program, contact Lindsay Shannon at Curl BC at lshannon@curlbc.ca or call 604-333-3618.
