Play Day

Youngsters enjoy a game of supervised "street" hockey during last year's community "Play Day." This year's event takes place Saturday, Sept. 28.

Niagara University students are once again inviting children in grades 3-6 to take part in a day full of fun and games this Saturday, Sept. 28, on the playing fields outside of the Kiernan Recreation Center. Events and activities will include kickball, soccer, street hockey, arts and crafts, and much more.

Some activities will also be offered for preschool children.

Activities will be held outdoors so participants are asked to dress appropriately. The event was established by students in SPM 395, part of NU’s sport management program.

Registration will begin at 8:30 a.m., and the games will take place from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Registration forms are available at local elementary schools and at the event.
