Young athletes with dreams of becoming an Olympic athlete can meet a real Olympic athlete during the second day of City Wide Registration on Sept. 9.
Joan McCusker, a 2006 Olympic Curling gold medalist, will be making an appearance to promote the Olympic Torch Relay Celebration which will be hosted in Swift Current on Jan. 10, 2010. She will be sharing some of her Olympic memories and one of the Torino 2006 Olympic Torches will be on display.
Over 35 community groups will be in attendance at the two-day City Wide Registration on Sept. 8-9 at the Credit Union iPlex. The fall registration, hosted by Swift Current’s Recreation and Parks Department, is hosted from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. on both days.
“This year’s event is sure to be a success,” explained Recreation and Scheduling Superintendent Nicole Peno. “There is definitely going to be something to help keep you active during these snowy months ahead. There is a large variety of culture, recreation and sports organizations participating that can spark interest and activity in anyone from child to the young at heart adult.”
Brochures promoting the registration evenings are being distributed to all students attending school in Swift Current, and brochures are available on the City of Swift Current website.
