Keys to Success

12 Keys To Success For Staff & Faculty Sports Day

  1. Don’t forget! Everyone on your team must sign a waiver in order to participate.
  2. Arrive early with your whole team to sign-in at Registration on Fri May 8.  Registration opens at 1:30 PM in the Life Building Concourse (near Starbucks) and closes at 3:30 PM
  3. The start line is in the Nest Plaza, just outside of Abdul Ladha. Make sure you are there before 2:30 PM for the mass start this year!
  4. There will be bag check, free of charge, in the Life Building 1501. It will be open from 1:00 PM – 6:00 PM. Only bring essentials and try to limit bags to one per team where possible.
  5. Wear appropriate clothes you can move in and to deal with whatever the weather may bring! It is Vancouver after all!
  6. Don’t forget to bring water with you to stay hydrated while participating in Sports Day stations.
  7. If a station is full you can either wait for the activity or find another one close by.
  8. Should First Aid attention be needed, aids are available in each zone.
  9. Ensure your team completes all necessary activities before the course closes at 4:00 pm. Competitive teams must finish 1 activity in each zone as well as 1 challenge before racing to the finish. Just for Fun Teams can do as many or as few activities as they wish before the courses closes.
  10. All teams must cross the Finish Line by 4:00 PM in the Life Building Main Concourse and give their passport to the Finish Line Marshall in exchange for your team food tickets as well as entry for prizes.
  11. Enjoy the Après Sports Day after the event on Friday! Refreshments and snacks will be at the awards zone for participants to enjoy.
