Designed to get kids active and introduce them to a variety of sports, SportsFest is a family-friendly sports experience that provides youth ages six to 13 opportunities to participate in numerous sports, learn more about the sports they like, and sign up for instruction or leagues – all under one roof. The show floor will feature more than 20 interactive sports experiences where children are encouraged to complete every station. Participants will be given a lanyard and an official SportsFest badge that will get checked off for every experience area in which the kids participate. Those who complete all of the stations will receive a Master Sports Fest Wrist Band.
