As you know, the Hunter Academy of Sport’s core objective is to identify, educate, develop and give opportunity to our region’s most promising athletes, but each year we like to motivate our own local community to get active and take up a sport.
This year we are hosting the annual SportsFest, a day of fun and activity where people can try multiple sports in one space in a great environment.
This year, Lake Macquarie’s Speers Point Park will play home to SportsFest on Sunday October 13th, in an all-ages family friendly event hosted by the Hunter Academy of Sport.
Fun and engaging simulators, batting cages and sports challenges will be dotted along the Sportsgrounds giving kids young and young-at-heart the opportunity to have a try at a new sport or test their skills and speed on a sport they already love.
The aim is to drive memberships and registrations in the region’s sporting codes, with overall challenge of increasing the health and fitness of our community.
Fitness classes, health and wellness booths, and healthy food stalls will all be a part of the day.
