BC Youth Week is May 1 to 7, and The LINC Youth Centre has a variety of special activities all week long to help celebrate.

To finish the week off, on Saturday, May 7, drop-in to the LINC is free all day and the LINC will be hosting its 7th annual Young Ones vs. Old Ones FREE Road Hockey Tournament and barbecue. Registration starts at 9:30 a.m., with games starting at 10:30am. Youth teams 10-18 years will play five-aside hockey all morning. The top youth teams battle each other in the finals, and then the winning team takes on ‘The Old Ones’ for the Waka Cup.
“Youth Week is always a lot of fun,” said Alexis Forbes, youth services co-ordinator at The LINC. “These activities help celebrate local youth and recognize the diversity that they bring to the Comox Valley. We also have daily door prizes during Youth Week, so for youth who haven’t been to The LINC before, it’s a great time to check it out!”
