Anyone for dodgeball?

Youth Week continues with events at KSS, Parksville Community Park, the Baptist Church and Ballenas Secondary

Youth Week got off to a rolling start Thursday at Ballenas Secondary School … literally.

Students climbed into clear plastic hamster balls and rolled acrossa the sports fields while listening to music.

There was an epic battle between DJ Killawattz and DJ B-Chuk who both threw down some sick beats, but in the end it was Killawattz who was the champion.

The collaborative event between the SOS, FRA, SD69, RDN also included a free BBQ sponsored by the City of Parksville.

Today (May 6), Kwalikum Scondary School is hosting a similar collaborative youth celebration from 3-5 p.m. that will include spirited games, including a hockey challenge with members of the Oceanside RCMP.

At Parksville Community Park, the City of Parksville will unveil a Pop-Up library at 3:30 p.m.

There is a dodgeball tourney being hosted by the Parksville Youth Ministry at Parksville Baptist Church on May 7 at 7:30 p.m.

An ultimate Frisbee tournament hosted by the Family Resource Association goes from 6 to 7:30 p.m. at Ballenas High School May 7.
