August 27, 2018 -
The City of Kingston is one of many community organizations offering FREE activities in September as part of Kingston Gets Active Month.
"Having free fun with family and friends and finding new ways to get active is what Kingston Gets Active Month is all about. We invite you to participate in a new sport or activity, attend a wellness workshop or drop-in to an open house," says Katie Rizzi, fitness and wellness coordinator with the City of Kingston.
Kingston Gets Active month activities include archery, cheerleading, martial arts, soccer, swimming, Pilates, boxing, trampoline and more. While all the activities are free, some require participants to RSVP, so it is a good idea to plan ahead.
From Sept. 1 to 30, explore the free community-offered activities at www.KingstonGetsActive.ca or "Like" Kingston Gets Active on Facebook to receive daily updates on free activities being offered.
Grade 5 and 9 students are reminded that their ActivPass offers them free access to City recreational facilities all year long. To get in, Grade 5 students can show their ActivPass and Grade 9 students can show their student identification card.
