Multi-Sport Camp with UVIC’s Office of Indigenous Academic & Community Engagement

The Indigenous Sport, Physical Activity & Recreation Council is please to present a multi-sport themed camp for Indigenous youth (First Nations, Métis, Inuit) hosted in partnership with the University of Victoria’s Office of Indigenous Academic & Community Engagement and First People’s House.

Come and spend three days on campus to make new friends, play and have fun! Learn where sports can take you, gain new skills on the field and court or just come hang out and see what’s happening! Every day is different!

I·SPARC’s amazing coaches will be sharing their skills and knowledge of sport through fun games and challenges, youth do not need any previous playing experience, it’s all about FUN!

** Soccer, played by hundreds of millions of people in over 200 countries! It really is the world’s most popular sport.

** Ultimate Spirit is so much more than sport! Come play Duck Hunt, Entourage and Sky Battle with our world champion coaches!! Ever heard of a Magic Air Bounce or a Scoober? Come discover the Spirit of the Game and learn why Ultimate Frisbee is one of I·SPARC’s MOST requested sports on the island!

**Basketball, invented in 1891 by a Canadian-American gym teacher has evolved to one of the world’s most popular and widely viewed sports!
