The Red Ball – a new initiative created by Right To Play’s university and college clubs. Starting in September and ending in May 2014, one Right To Play red ball will be making friends and changing lives as it travels between Canadian universities and colleges. Like every hero and iconic figure, this ball has an original story.
The REDBALL made an appearance at the CCAA Men’s National Basketball Championships last weekend.
It is now at UBC where it will finish off the tour!
Written in different languages on the Red Ball is our philosophy — LOOK AFTER YOURSELF, LOOK AFTER ONE ANOTHER. This message embodies the best values of sport, such as the importance of teamwork, respect, inclusion, and fair play. Through our games, our resources, and everything our Project Co-ordinators and Local Coaches do, we strive to empower individuals to look after themselves and look after their community.
The Red Ball symbolizes the humanitarian potential of sport to promote health, development and peace.
