Byline: The Register-Guard

Emerald Kidsports will celebrate its 50th anniversary Saturday by offering clinics, a sports and fitness exposition and a hall of fame dinner.

The event, titled "A Celebration of Sports," will serve as a catalyst to literally get children and adults moving, said Ron Gibbs, executive director of Kidsports.

"The celebration of sports will bring our region's sports organizations together in one place so everyone can discover ways to embrace a lifestyle of fitness," Gibbs said in a written statement.

The day's activities will include:

A free sports and fitness expo from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Moshofsky Center at Autzen Stadium. The expo will feature 60 exhibitors, including local sports organizations, sports and fitness retailers and health and fitness providers.

Clinics for coaches, officials and parents will be held from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Len Casanova Center at Autzen Stadium.

Registration is required, and a $30 fee includes lunch and a polo shirt. Registration forms are available at www.

The Hall of Fame Dinner at 7 p.m. at Hilton Eugene. The dinner will feature the first inductions into the Kidsports Hall of Honor. Cost is $400 for a table of eight, or $50 per person.

Emerald Kidsports is a nonprofit organization that provides activities for elementary school-age children in the Eugene-Springfield area. Activities include football, soccer, volleyball, basketball, baseball, softball and T-ball.
