Spark is a free weekly drop-in program for trans, gender non-conforming, non-binary and two-spirit youth age 16-29. Spark explores a range of sport and recreation activities including; ultimate frisbee, soccer, swimming, ice sports, field sports, bike riding, hiking etc.
Our expert facilitators will begin each season with an introduction to the fundamentals of each sport, building skill and ability over time. All are welcome; no previous experience required - it's all non-competitive, and in fact, we want to specifically encourage folks with no previous experience to join in on the fun. Feel free to just come and hang out/watch if that suits you best; you can participate however you want!
