‘Tis the season to be active – Winter recreation registration starts today

As excitement and anticipation build with the approaching holiday season, don’t let cold weather or holiday preparations keep you or your family from being active. Registration for our winter recreation programs is now open - to register, visit calgary.ca/recreation or phone 403.268.3800.

“It’s easy to get caught up in the holidays, between family, friends and other commitments, time can really be crunched,” says Erik Van den Eynden, busy father of two, as well as, Recreation’s customer service and technology lead.

“We've taken this into consideration and expanded our family programming – this means that parents and kids can register in courses together.”

One of our holiday programs, Winter Village, allows you to spend quality time with your children while creating your own custom clay village. Some of our January offerings include programs such as; Dad and Me Move, Aikido – Family Introductory, and Capoeira for Everyone!

“We’re really excited to help Calgarians have more family time,” Van den Eynden continues, “Besides having fun together, there are many benefits to being active together – like strengthening our family ties and beating the post-holiday blues.”

In addition to our family programs, we offer more than 12,000 registered programs that cater to everyone in your family. Super Hero Sport Squad for your lil’ guy? Babysitter training course for your tween? A Teapot intensive? Six pack abs? Or new this year –  RRSP: Retirement Recreation Success Plan – which ensures you’re physically fit well into retirement. Customize your family’s winter activities today with My Rec Guide.
