The Town of Whitchurch-Stouffville Leisure Centre and Arenas are gearing up for a busy fall season.
The recreation team has been hard at work restructuring the much-loved Public Skating program which offers residents various options for strapping on their skates and getting active.
For those who enjoy a straight-up leisure skate, there are many timeslots for regular Public Skating (prices start at $3.50/visit) with Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays having daytime Adult & Senior Free Skate times which are free to attend. Family Stick & Puck on Monday and Friday evenings from 4:15-5:15 PM, where families can connect with each other and practice their shooting, passing and basic stick handling.
The Fitness team is once again getting in the groove with the Stouffville Walks indoor walking group hosted at SoccerCity. At $3.50/visit (or $115/season), this is the perfect opportunity for those wanting a climate-controlled space to stretch their legs and can be particularly beneficial for individuals needing rehabilitation post injury. The group fitness and training rooms are also still in full swing at the Leisure Centre.
The Aquatics team is making sure everyone gets the training they need by offering courses including National Lifeguard Certification/Recertification, First Aid & CPR, and Examiners courses. This is the perfect time for those looking to get certified/recertified for possible job applications in the new year. The pool is open for Family Swims at various times including Family Swim Saturday and Sunday mornings and Leisure Swims Saturday and Sunday afternoons.
