Learn to Play Sports - for Free!

Heads up, Erie! It's time to Go Play!

The Erie Sports Commission is pleased to announce a new series of events, called Go Play Days, in which the organization will partner with local sports groups to offer free learn-to-play events for multiple sports. The Erie Sports Commission believes that increasing access to sports helps to promote healthy lifestyles, which in turn helps to improve the quality of life for community members of all ages.

The aim of the Go Play Day initiative is to make trying a new sport as frictionless as possible - many events will provide registrants with all required equipment and instruction to begin playing, free of charge.
