Superheroes there to save the day at Sport Showdown

Superheroes will be featured in the ninth annual Delta Gymnastics Sport Showdown, which is being billed as the ultimate team building experience.

Delta Gymnastics opens its doors annually to community groups and organizations to find out for themselves that play is for all ages. This year’s event takes place on Saturday, Oct. 27.

“Sport Showdown began as a creative way to get adults from our community to try to bond with each other through active play and gymnastics-based activities which provide a foundation for active living, long-term athletic skills and new ways to move your body,” said Delta Gymnastics executive director Ana Arciniega.

The theme of this year’s event is all about being a superhero.

“The stations may include obstacle courses, building a foam cube tower, a fun dress-up or other physical activities,” explained Arciniega.

Participants can select from two categories, each with its own trophy: Power to the People for those who just want to have fun and Full Throttle for those type “A” people who need a harder challenge and love the spirit of competition.

“Even the best teams need bonding experiences to improve communication, morale, motivation and, most importantly, camaraderie,” said Arciniega. “And by teams we mean corporate, family, sports or organizational groups that want to strengthen their relationships and add to their bank of memories.”

Any group can put together a team of eight to 12 people of any age or ability level. Cost is $25 per participant.

Past teams have ranged from the Delta Police Department and Rotary Club of Tsawwassen to Delta View Habilitation Centre and Thrifty Foods.

Interested teams must confirm participation in either Power to the People (3:30 to 6 p.m.) or Full Throttle (5 to 7:30 p.m.) by Oct. 19 by emailing or by calling 604-943-0460.
