How to play like you're in the Canada Games

We'll help you get into all 20 of the sports of the 2011 Halifax Games.

The Canada Games will be in Halifax February 11-27, with teenaged athletes from every province and territory competing in 20 sports in what organizers are calling "the largest multi-sport event in Nova Scotia history." If you want tickets to sit on your butt and watch these athletes, head to the official Games site. But if the hype is inspiring you to put that butt into get and try your hand at ringette, alpine skiing, table tennis or any of the other 17, we have your DIY guide to getting into the Games. Each sport gets it own story in this online Well Being Guide, so do some browsing then strap on your skates/skis/rifle/quiver/chair/gi/unitard/swimsuit and/or sneakers and get going.
