• Game On Douglas Shire!

The Game On DS2018 – Come and Try!  and EVEN MORE Active Games in the Park! projects are delivered under the Queensland Government’s Embracing 2018 Legacy Program for the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games and funded by the Australian Government.

Funding will enable Council and local clubs to deliver free sport and active recreation events and programs in the lead-up to, during and after the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games.

WHAT’S ON SCHEDULE HERE

Game On DS2018 – Come and Try!” will target residents in the Douglas Shire currently not undertaking regular physical activity and provide opportunities to participate in a variety of free ‘come and try’ and friendly competition days at various venues across the Shire.

Game On DS2018 – EVEN MORE Active Games in the Park! will extend the reach of council’s existing ‘Active Games in the Park’ to outlying communities in the shire enabling more children to become more active.

Regular updates on the Come and Try days and EVEN MORE Active Games in the Park will be posted to Council’s Facebook Page https://www.facebook.com/douglasshirecouncil and Website in coming weeks and months.
