Trail Rec: Kids get creative with art classes

Upcoming events and programs offered by Trail Parks and Recreation.

Art Classes with Deborah. Age group 6 to 8 runs Wednesday’s 3 to 4:30 p.m., Nov. 18 to Dec. 2. Age group 9 to 12 runs Thursday’s 3 to 4:30 p.m., Nov. 19 to Dec. 3. Learn to use both graphite and oil pastel materials to create your own unique works of art. This is a great opportunity to create that special something for your family during this festive season.

Home Alone is a course for ages 8 to 11, and will run on Wed. Nov. 25 from 3 – 6 p.m. at the Trail Aquatic Centre. The focus of this program is to prepare your child to be home alone for a few hours. They will learn some basic first aid, phone precautions, household hazards, and emergency procedures.

Adult Co-Ed pick-up hockey happens every Sunday from 7:30 to 8:30 p.m. in the Kids Rink. Come and play some co-ed rec hockey where you can pay as you go. You can pay your drop-in fee of only $5 (TRP) at the skate shop, and sign in prior to going on the ice. Public skating staff will be there to collect payment. The focus is on fun and getting some extra time on the ice. Goalies play for free (must still sign in); full hockey gear and helmets are mandatory.

Seniors Get Fit is happening on Nov. 20 from 10:45 a.m. to 12:45 p.m. A personal trainer will lead you towards your physical fitness goals, including an introduction to the fitness centre, learning about physical fitness, safe lifting techniques, avoiding injury and goal setting. Proper weight room etiquette will also be discussed.
