Back to Sport Play Packs Logo

summer play packs

With so much uncertainty around sports over the past year, we wanted to make sure that local kids in need had the opportunity to get active this Spring and Summer. With the help of our incredible partners and powered by the Flames Foundation, we were able to create our Back to Sport Play Packs!

Alongside the Calgary Flames Sports Bank, we distributed 300 Play Packs to families across Calgary & Area. Each Play Pack included brand new equipment for the child(ren) to try out at home along with drills, tips, and a water bottle from Squeeze YYC so that they had the resources they needed to play with their new gear!

Thank you to all of our partners for helping us bring these Play Packs to life and for making it So ALL Kids Can Play!  We can't wait to see these Play Packs in action.
