Sports Day hits Kelowna

Local wheelchair rugby club gives children opportunity to try new sport and stay active

Wheelchair rugby was the featured sport at RBC Sports Day in Kelowna on Sunday.

Sports Day is meant to get children active and involved in sports across the country, and in Kelowna that meant a visit from the Kelowna KOs, a wheelchair rugby team.  KOs coach Randy LeBlanc  said they wanted to showcase their sport and get it into the community by showing that it was for everyone and making children feel comfortable around wheelchair sports.

LeBlanc added everyone is welcome to join the KOs during their training sessions on Wednesday’s from 5pm to 8pm.  More information about the club, which has been in Kelowna for three years, can be found at www.kelownakoswheelchairrugby.com.
