Pick a Club in February

Pick a Club in February

Here on the Fraser Coast we have an abundance of clubs for our youth to join, and the beginning of the year is the perfect time to join them. We have two events coming up on the Fraser Coast this month that are designed to help you find out what clubs and associations there are in our region. It is also a day where you get to ask your questions, and speak one on one with those groups that you are interested in. Believe me when I say that there will be something for everybody. – Kim, Editor.

The Fraser Coast Sports + Expo celebrates active living, and is organised by the Fraser Coast Regional Council. Last year the same event saw more than 3000 people walk through the doors of the Hervey Bay PCYC to view stalls and displays put on by about 90 groups from around the region.

The free Expo gives everyone an opportunity to find out about the range of sports, recreation and leisure activities available on the Fraser Coast, and there is a range on offer. Last year there was everything from basketball and pony clubs to roller derby to dance and mountain bike riding,” Events and Recreation Portfolio Councillor Darren Everard said.

The best bit is that the Expo is open and free to any sport, leisure or recreational group that would like to exhibit.

Everyone who attends the Expo will be able to fill in an entry to go into the draw to win a $1,000 voucher from Sports First in Hervey Bay.

Maryborough & District All Sports Showcase

The Maryborough & District Sporting Clubs and Associations, supported by the local schools have come together to have a combined Maryborough & District All Sports Showcase. It is anticipated that many of the Sports Clubs present will have interactive displays, where people can be actively involved. The Rowing Club for example will have not only Rowing Scull’s on display, but also a rowing machine for people to try out the actual rowing action.

At this time there are Clubs representing Tennis, Croquet, Netball, Basketball, BMX, the Swimming Club, Masters Swimming Club, Football, Rugby, Ten-Pin-Bowling, Cricket, Gymnastics, Hockey, and the Rowing Club committed to the event with many more who have indicated their intention to attend. It will be a free event, so no entry fee, to make it accessible for anyone, and everyone who is interested in sport in Maryborough & District. Tea, Coffee, soft drinks, and Barbecue items will be available for purchase on the day.
