It’s here. Please come out on Wednesday, September 3 to the Multiplex for registration during the City’s Community Showcase evening. All athletes, volunteers and coaches should register for the sports this year. Sports include swimming, speed skating, rhythmic gymnastics, skating (with an emphasis on figure skating), and bowling. Youth sport skill development programs are available to those ages 3- 6 and 7 – 11. We are also hoping to offer a general fitness program this winter. There is no cost to register. You can get your Special Olympics NWT t-shirts at registration for $20 each. We’ll see everyone there.
A big thank you to the folks at Eureka for the donation of bottles and cans to Special Olympics NWT. We had a full crew out to count and sort them this weekend. Money from this set of recycling will pay for more than one pool rental day this year! Thank you.
Special Olympics golfers were happy once again to take part in the Yellowknife Golf Club’s McDonalds Mondays program. For these athletes, there is no better way to spend a Monday morning in July than out at the club, practicing skills and trying a few holes of golf. We’d like to give a big thank you to the Golf Club for so generously including us in their program and to Al at McDonalds for generously sponsoring this great program.
Active Start and FUNdamentals start this coming Saturday for ages 2 – 11. In 45 minute sessions, we have a lot of fun while building core sport participation skills. For information on this fall’s 10 week session, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Sport skills development programs for young athletes start again on September 28. Active Start is open to those ages 2 – 6 and those 7 – 11 can take part in FUNdamentals. Athletes can register at the general registration on September 21.
