Military members and civilian staff celebrated the return of Canadian Armed Forces Sports Day on Oct. 20.

There was a strong showing for a wide range of team sports and other drop-in fitness-related activities hosted by Naden Athletic Centre staff.  Throughout the day dozens of participants brought their ‘A’ game to indoor soccer, floor hockey, dodgeball, volleyball, spikeball, length swims, aquafit, and spin classes. At the Wurtele arena they did lap skates and outside ran a five kilometre route. 

Participants were required to follow COVID-19 protocol, providing proof of vaccination and wearing a mask when entering, exiting, and transiting through the facilities. They also received a free Sports Day t-shirt and lunch.
