The fourth annual RBC Sports Day in Canada will take place on Saturday, November 30.

Mother and RBC Olympian Jill Officer recently took a few moments to share her thoughts on the importance of sport in the development of children, here’s what she had to say:

From the health benefits of regular physical activity to the emotional and social benefits of making friends and building relationships, there are many reasons that sport plays an important role in the lives of young people.

RBC is committed to helping Canadian youth lead happy and healthy lives and, through initiatives like Learn to Play, RBC Sports Day in Canada and the RBC Olympians program, work to bring that commitment to life in Canadian communities.
