The Strathmore Motor Products Sports Centre aims to consistently introduce innovative and inclusive recreation options that benefit the community and one of those options is their 'come try it' workshops.

Elizabeth Charlesworth from the Strathmore Motor Products Sports Centre says that their team is committed to enhancing physical literacy and providing accessible entry to sports participation across all programs that they offer.

"We recognize the significance of expanding our offerings, as they play a pivotal role in fostering community wellness. Our recent ability to increase in program offering can be credited to the Reaching Each and Everyone grant we received earlier this year."

Charlesworth says that the emphasis on "come try it" recreation events stems from their commitment to fostering an active and engaged community.

"These events hold significant community benefits as they serve as avenues to introduce people to a diverse range of sports and physical activities. It also allows us to try out different things and see what programs are resonating with our community."
