2nd Annual Okanagan Sunflowers – It’s time for the women of Kelowna to “get off the stands and onto the field.”

Ladies only football tournament and learning experience to raise funds for the Okanagan Sun.

Summer Johansen along with the Okanagan Sun Football team presents the 2nd annual Okanagan Sunflowers, taking place at the Apple Bowl Stadium on Sunday August 23, 2015 from 12:00pm-5:00pm.

Summer Johansen, a recent Events and Promotions Graduate from the Centre of Arts and Technology, is proud to provide ladies of all skill levels the chance to learn about and participate in a football learning experience and touch football tournament. Okanagan Sunflowers was established last year in an effort to allow women an equal opportunity to play the male-dominated sport of football and break through the gender barrier.

In support of this event, the Okanagan Sun players will teach participants the basics of the game. The event will begin by dividing the women into 8 teams of seven, in which each team will be assigned two Okanagan Sun players who will coach them on the basic football fundamentals. During the afternoon, teams will compete for the winning title in addition to various prizes sponsored by local businesses.

In addition to learning kicks and tackle techniques, there will be snacks, music, and an opportunity to win a 50/50 raffle!

The tournament is open to women ages 15 and older and directly targets the mothers, daughters, sisters, and friends of football players. It’s time for the women of Kelowna to invite their boyfriends, husbands, sons, and friends to cheer them on as they take the field. Entrance fee for spectators is $5.00.

Early bird tickets to enter the tournament are $20/person, and will be on sale until July 16th. After that date, regular tickets will be on sale for $30/person. If entered as a team (7 people), tickets are $25/person. Tickets are available to purchase at http://oksunflowers.eventbrite.ca. Funds will be used to support the Okanagan Sun Team.

Hope to see you there!
