Celebrate the power of sport. Get ready to get out and play, Canada!

RBC Sports Day in Canada – a national celebration of the power of sport to build community and get Canadians moving – takes place on November 21, 2015, in communities across Canada.

How can you celebrate?

If you’re not hosting an event, think about celebrating sport in other ways. Get your teammates, classmates or colleagues to dig out a team or club jersey and wear it to school, work or play on November 20 for National Jersey Day.
