We have four events happening in April that are aligned with the Participaction 150 initiative and we invite you to come out and Discover Floorball…for FREE!

To celebrate Canada’s 150th birthday, ParticipACTION unveiled the ParticipACTION 150 Play List – the ultimate list of 150 physical activities that define us as Canadian. The 150 Play List was created by Canadians for Canadians and now ParticipACTION is challenging Canadians like you to try as many of the activities on the list as possible throughout 2017. You can register at participaction.com/150 and check off the activities you complete to earn entries into weekly, monthly and grand-prize draws. Being physically active is its own reward, but a little motivation doesn’t hurt!

Now try your hand at an emerging sport in Canada…Discover Floorball!

Wednesday, April 12th is the official date for Floorball as part of ParticipACTION 150 Play List and April 12th, 2017 is also International Floorball Day.
