Over the past decade, The Canada One Athletic Foundation (COF) has built up a sporting festival in Kitsilano like no other. Through the help of the Vancouver Parks Board, acceptance of the Kits Point Residents Association and local support from many community partners, KitsFest has become a spectacular sporting event like no other in Canada.
With a great supporting cast directing each sport, beach volleyball, tennis and basketball tournaments have been able to be held on the same weekend at the same iconic Kits Beach site. And now with the addition of beachside classes like morning Zumba (by The Zed Team), Sunset Beach Yoga that’s glow in the dark (by lululemon) and two spin cycling classes (by Steve Nash Fitness), the festival can appeal to an even wider audience.
By adding on a new Water Polo tournament, the entire beach will be taken over by what Co-Founder Howard Kelsey describes as an “active living and healthy lifestyle smorgasbord.”
