Saturday is Sports Day in Canada, a national celebration of community sport and participation. The Windsor Spitfires are jumping on board in a big way.

The Spits want young people to get off the couch and become more active and that's one of the reasons they're promoting Sports Day in Canada.

The Spitfires are hosting an afternoon of fun activities at the WFCU Centre prior to their game Saturday night against Sarnia.

Ty Bilcke is 19 years old and he's in his third season with the team. CBC News wanted to find out what inspired him to stay active and become the athlete he is today.

He spoke with Windsor Morning host Tony Doucette on Wednesday morning.

To watch his entire interview, including some that wasn't aired on Windsor Morning, play the video above.

CBC Windsor has tickets to give away to their Saturday night game against Sarnia. Windsor Morning and the Bridge, with Bob Steele, will give away family packs. Tune into 97.5 FM for details.

CBC Windsor is also giving away three pair of tickets on its Facebook page. Just Like CBC Windsor on Facebook and you're entered in the draw.
