Communities from Bay Bulls-Bauline East to Participate in First National
Sports Day in Canada with Regional Games and Super Soccer Blast

The Bay Bulls to Bauline Athletic Association Chairperson, Scott Penney, announced today that the seven communities in our region will participate in the first National Sports Day in Canada for the week from September 11-18 with two major events; the 4th Annual Regional Games and 2nd annual Super Soccer Blast. The region encompasses the communities of Bay Bulls, Witless Bay, Mobile, Tors Cove, Burnt Cove, St. Michaelís and Bauline East.

The regional games torch was passed from the Tors Cove/St. Michaelís/Bauline East committee of last year and returned to the original host, the Town of Bay Bulls.  "Our board is quite pleased that communities in the region support this initiative and are taking turns playing the lead role. The fact that we have communities approaching us to host the games certainly shows how much excitement goes along with the regional games event," said Mr. Penney". Some 250 youth from the region will participate in as many as six different sporting events and other community based gatherings from September 10-12. 

Super Soccer Blast will follow the next weekend as the end of a full summer of Southern Shore Unitedís soccer activities that include house league, metro teams and tournaments. Activities will include parent versus child games, skill testing sessions, bouncy castles, face painting, barbeques and more.  This event will fall on September 18, which is scheduled as the official Sports Day in Canada.

The association is excited to be participating in this first ever Sports Day in Canada with two of our major fun sporting events.  In providing regional games and super soccer blast for the area, the association strives to follow one of the main objectives of the Provincial Governmentís recreation and sport strategy, Active Healthy Newfoundland and Labrador, by increasing participation in recreation, sport and physical activity in our region.

Please call should you require any additional clarification.
