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.
Special Olympics snowshoeing starts Saturday March 9 and runs until Saturday March 23. Dress for the weather and join the team from 11 to noon at the Civic Plaza in front of City Hall.
Come out on March 16 to watch the Law Enforcement Torch Run Convoy for A Cause. The trucks will start at the RTL tank farm, drive the highway and come into town by the Explorer Hotel. They’ll drive down main street and end up by the Field House about 2:15.
If you are around the Multiplex on Saturday, January 9, drop in to see two figure skaters – Annie and Phoebe – as they attempt their Elements and Freeskate. Elements are at 11:30 and Freeskate will be at 2:40 (all times are approximate).
