Winter Fun coming at Pop-Up event on Nov. 25

The Saskatchewan Sports Hall of Fame (2205 Victoria Avenue in Regina) will be hosting a free Winter Fun Pop-up event on Saturday, Nov. 25 from 12:30 to 2:30 p.m.

This event is supported by the City of Regina and we are excited to offer a fun afternoon of activities for the whole family.

The day will start inside with a short tour of the Hall of Fame along with some indoor games on our multi-sport simulator, adaptive curling rink, and in our interactive STEM Gallery sponsored by SaskTel. After an hour we will head outside (weather permitting) to play some games in Victoria Park to try out some snowshoes for another hour. The snowshoes will be provided for free.

After playing outside everyone is welcome to come back to the Hall of Fame for some hot chocolate and snacks in our boardroom. Guests can continue to play inside the Hall of Fame on their own as well as we will remain open until 4 p.m.

Visitors to the Hall of Fame can test their vertical jump, their balance, their strength, their standing long jump, their flexibility, and their grip strength at our STEM Interactive Gallery stations. The multi-sport simulator is a popular favourite that allows visitors to test their sporting skills in a variety of virtual games like baseball, basketball, football, hockey, soccer, and more. Our four-rock adaptive curling “ice” allows visitors to slide their stones down the ice either from their knees or with an adaptive stick that affixes to the stone.

This event will go forward regardless of the weather. We have extra indoor activities planned if the weather proves to be too cold and if there is no snow for snowshoeing we will adjust accordingly. We ask that visitors arrive a little before 12:30 p.m. so they can take their winter coats off and settle inside the Hall of Fame so we can begin on time. We ask that children be accompanied by an adult for the duration of their visit.
