Sports365: Off With a Bang

Sports365BlogHeader

This month is loaded with fun sports happenings in the heat. Luckily for you, I’ve rounded up the best events in this month’s Sports365! Whether you want to see our country’s top young athletes, do some tailgating, stretch out, or take a moonlit ride, Sacramento has got you covered!


Sacramento will host the 50th Annual Junior Olympic Track and Field Championships at the end of the month from July 25-31 at Sacramento State. This event has hosted many of America’s past Olympians and maybe even a few who should be competing in Rio this summer.

Only the best-of-the-best young athletes, ages 7-18, are invited to participate, so you’ll get a chance to see world-class athletes growing into their potential.

Hurdles, shot put, long jump, and more; what more could you ask for? Whether you don’t know a thing about track and field or you’re a relay running fiend, there’s something for everyone. This weekend will be the perfect opportunity to enjoy great performances, nice weather, newly renovated facilities, and a great community of fans and family.

If you want to get more involved in the championships, but weren’t invited to compete (or are just too old like me) then make sure to join the Sac Event Crew. This dedicated group of volunteers will get up and close to the action and make sure that the events run smoothly.

I’ve always wanted to get into yoga, but never quite had the guts to try it out. Now, I’ve got the chance to partake in a little liquid courage while working on my flexibility. Sounds perfect!

Riding your bike is always fun, but cruising with hundreds of others under the glow of the moon really kicks up the excitement. Plus, you’ll help raise funds for local charities!
