The Town of Essex wants you to wear a jersey, team or club uniform to school, work or play on Friday to show your love and support for sport.

“Wearing your favourite team jersey on National Jersey Day is a great way to show your support for sport and active living in Essex,” says Doug Sweet, Director of Community Services.

“Essex is well-known for its success in sports and has a well-developed network of sport and recreation organizations that support the community by offering excellent programs. National Jersey Day and National Sports Day give us an opportunity to recognize the importance of sport in our everyday lives.”

A number of local schools will be participating and promoting National Jersey Day one day early because Friday is a PA Day.

The Town is also inviting everyone to celebrate Sports Day in Canada by attending free programs being offered at the Essex Recreation Complex from 2:30pm to 4:00pm on Saturday, November 21st. No registration required.

Activities at the pool will include a free Family Swim and a Swim to Survive Challenge. Gym activities will include soccer, dodgeball, floor hockey and more. Adults can also try our Yoga program.

Wear a sports jersey to one of our recreational or family swims on Friday, November 20 and be entered in a draw to win a great prize.
