Would your community be interested in hosting the 2015 RWD SSFA Game Days?
The Saskatchewan Senior Fitness Association (SSFA) Rivers West District is made up of the communities within the Rivers West District.
Every two years the SSFA RWD hosts the District Play Offs to determine a team to represent the District at the Provincial Senior Games, which will be held in North Battleford July of 2016.
Winners at the Provincial Senior Games will advance to the Canadian Senior 55+ Games.
In the off years, such as in 2015 the SSFA Rivers West District committee looks for communities to host Games Days. Games Days are opportunities for communities to host mini-games. They are also a great fundraiser and a chance to invite “fresh faces” into the community and to enjoy fellowship and fun!
The host community picks the numbers of events they would like to offer, focusing on choosing both active and passive events. A list of events is on the application.
The host community / organizations are encouraged to offer an event demonstration or guest speaker for after lunch entertainment.
For more information and forms please click here. Bids are due on May 31, 2015.
