Get on Board – Canada’s 150th Birthday Celebration

On Saturday March 18, 2017 the Thunder Bay Diving Club hosted Get on Board, a free event to celebrate Canada’s 150th birthday and let our community members try diving for free.  Approximately 60 participants, from age 6 to adult, came out to see what our club and our sport are all about.  If participants registered with PARTICIPACTION 150 they could check diving (#13) off the list of Canada’s 150 favourite activities!

This event was a huge success for our club!  We were thrilled to see all the new faces that came out to experience diving, many for the first time.  In addition to trying both dryland and pool activities the participants were treated to demonstrations by our competitive athletes.  We are hoping that #Getonboard will encourage new young athletes to join our next Learn to Dive session or Summer Camp and see what the future of diving holds for them!

Thanks to everyone who came out to celebrate, learn and have a great time with us!
