NOW the back-to-school rush is over, many parents are thinking about what sports and activities they can put their children into to keep them occupied throughout the year.

Many parents and children got some great ideas yesterday when they headed to the Lane 4 Aquatics 2013 Sports and Health Expo at the Rockhampton Showgrounds.

More than 70 exhibitors were there to speak with people and to give different demonstrations.

There were a variety of sports, from netball to hockey, swimming to rugby league, and more.

Chairwoman of Rockhampton Regional Council's Parks and Recreation Committee, Cr Cherie Rutherford said beforehand that it was the perfect opportunity to find out all the information in one simple location.

"As a parent myself, I know and understand how difficult it can be choosing a sport, and a local club for your children to participate in for the year," Cr Rutherford said.

"The Lane 4 Aquatic 2013 Sports and Health Expo provides all this information in one convenient location, and gives children an opportunity to participate in demonstrations."
