Do you consider yourself the sporty type? Then this day out might be perfect for you | 28 Oct
When: Sunday 28 October
Where: Speers Point Park
Time: 10am - 2pm
Are you looking for a fun family activity to do during this spring? The Hunter Academy of Sport are yet again hosting SportsFest, a free family fun day at Lake Macquarie’s Speers Point Park on Sunday, October 28th.
Imagine all of your favourite sports dotted along Speers Point Park encouraging you to get active and involved in something you love or to try something new.
The Hunter Academy of Sport’s core objective is to identify, educate, develop and give opportunity to the region’s most promising athletes, but each year they like to motivate the local community to get active and take up a sport.
Athletics NSW, AFL NSW/ACT, Jack Newton Junior Golf, Netball NSW, Softball NSW, Cricket NSW and many more will be on hand to give kids a try through various drills, skill development, inflatable batting cages and hitting bays. There will also be a rock climbing wall in the park giving participants the opportunity to try one of the new sports that will be featured in the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo.“This event is not only for the young at age, it’s for the young at heart. I want dads, mums, older brothers, and younger brothers, younger sisters, and older sisters to come along, and enjoy themselves” said Brett O’Farrell, CEO of the Hunter Academy of Sport.
