June 22, 2016 0

Who hasn’t been flipping through the sports networks, or surfing fitness channels on YouTube, and come across footage of hulking men dragging vehicles, overhead pressing logs, tossing a keg or flipping giant tires. Would you like to see these men, and women, live and in action? Enter the YYCfit Western Canadian Strongman Classic, running in conjunction with the show May 13 & 14, 2017. Strongman athletes from all across Western Canada will converge at the show to compete, and YYCfit attendees get to watch these powerhouses engaged in mind-boggling feats of strength! Is there a particular Strongman event you’d love to see at the Classic? Let us know!

April 10 – 16 is National Volunteer Week in Canada!  Volunteers are critical to sports and recreation organizations in Alberta.  Here are some interesting stats from the 2007 Giving and Volunteering for Sports & Recreation Organizations in Alberta survey:

  • Sports and recreation organizations comprise the largest component of the nonprofit sector in Alberta – 26% of the 20,000 organizations in Alberta
  • Two thirds of hours worked for sports and recreation organizations came from volunteers
  • 370,000 Albertans (13% of the population over the age of 15) volunteered for sports and recreation organizations in the year the study was conducted, for 43.5 million hours
  • Most common volunteer activities include organizing or supervising events (44%); coaching, refereeing or officiating (40%); fundraising (40%); or sitting on a board or committee (29%)

Make sure to take time this week to thank those volunteers working with your organization!
