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.

Tuesday May 3, youth 8 – 11 years are invited to a special Tween Dance.  There will be a DJ, light show, and a photo booth. Tickets are $6 or two for $10.

Wednesday, May 4, youth 11-18 years will receive a complimentary ice-cream sundae or ice-cream float with their drop-in.

Thursday, May 5, The LINC and Onethirtythree Boardshop are hosting a Skate Jam with best trick competitions, three-legged skateboarding race, hot-dog eating contest, and prizes for youth 9-18 years.

Friday, May 6, youth 11-18 can decorate a cupcake for $0.50 with all the fixings.  Drop-in to The Linc is $2.50 unless otherwise noted.

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!”

For more information, or to pre-register a youth hockey team, please call The LINC at 250-334-8138, or check out their Facebook page for all the details.
