Go Play Days

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

The Erie Sports Commission is thrilled to host series of events, called Go Play Days, in which the organization partners 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.

 About Lake Shore BMX

To realize the total thrill that BMX gives a rider, you really need to experience it. There are more than 300 BMX tracks located all around the country including Lake Shore BMX, which has operated here in Erie, PA for the past 40 years. Once you try BMX racing, we practically guarantee you'll be hooked for life.

BMX Racing is an individual sport. Everyone rides, every time, regardless of how proficient or inexperienced. That is one of the key benefits new families list when asked why they like the sport.

“Nobody Rides the Bench in BMX Racing.”

Skip the tryouts, grab a bicycle and pedal with BMX Racing, a new field-of-play where kids and parents from four to 90, have the chance to shine! The only requirement is that your rider knows how to ride a bike with some confidence and control.
