Noosa Council is hosting another of its popular Come-n-Try Sports events on Tuesday, February 28 from 3pm – 5:30pm at the softball fields, Noosa District Sports Complex, Butler St, Tewantin.
Come-n-Try is back and features winter sports.
Local sporting groups will be providing free fun activities for primary-aged kids in a range of winter sports.
Community Facilities Manager, Brad Chalmers, said the Come-n-Try afternoons are a fantastic way for Noosa kids to experience different sports and make connections with local sports clubs.
“Led by local coaches, the kids get to try a range of different sport activities in a fun and non-competitive environment. As it’s straight after school, the kids are given a healthy snack before they begin, and then they play for about two hours,” he said.
“With a decline in participation since Covid began, this is a terrific way for kids to engage with sport and possibly even sign up to play this winter.”
The annual sports afternoon is continuing tradition, bringing a range of local clubs and the Noosa community together.
AFLQ Development Coordinator, Jacob Amore, says that with AFL clubs in Noosa and in Pomona, the Come-n-Try Day gives children from around the Shire a chance to try AFL and see if they enjoy it.
President of Noosa Softball, Richard Wakeham, added that many smaller sports like softball have been impacted dramatically by a decline in numbers in recent years, so the Come-n-Try afternoon is an ideal way to showcase their sport again to locals.
Registration for the event is essential and can be done via the Eventbrite link on Council’s website at: www.noosa.qld.gov.au/comeandtrysports
