It’s a jock’s dream — a day dedicated to sports.

Nov. 30 is Sports Day in Canada, and the West Portage branch of the YMCA-YWCA of Winnipeg (3550 Portage Ave.) is hosting a "Come & Play Day" event to celebrate the occasion.

The event is "all part of finding fun, easy ways to get families active. Parents who are active with their children are a powerful and positive influence in shaping their children’s future physical habits," Kent Paterson, president and CEO of YMCA-YWCA of Winnipeg, said in a release.

All are welcome to attend Come & Play Day, and it’s free of charge. Children and families can play floor hockey from 1 to 4 p.m. Blue Bomber alumni Ron "Pepe" Latourelle and Rod Hill will be referees.

For more information about the event, call the West Portage branch at 204-889-8052 or visit ywinnipeg.ca
