Programs

Winter 2021

Programs will run from January 18, 2021 to March 28, 2021.  A full list of programs is provided towards the bottom of this page.

Things are different this year!  We have decided not to charge registration fees for our winter programs, as families are experiencing the pandemic differently, and we want everyone to have the opportunity to have some fun.  However, we will require all participants to have a valid CPRA Membership, which you can purchase for $15/household.  If you cannot afford this fee, please contact SueAnne Harms by e-mail at indoor@collegeparksaskatoon.com.   We will also honour other community association memberships.

CPRA membership runs from September 1 to August 31 and must be renewed annually.

We have some equipment available for all of the activities we are offering, so please join if you are interested in trying out a new activity!  These programs are possible thanks to funding from the City of Saskatoon and WintercityYXE.

SCHEDULED programs: You will need to be pre-registered (preferably by January 17th) to get your spot in the class. You will hold that spot for all 10 weeks. There are limited spots in the classes based on the most recent COVID-19 guidelines. Please do not register if you are not planning to continue with the program, as this will fill a spot someone else could have. If you would like to try a program once, please e-mail indoor@collegeparksaskatoon.com and we will see if arrangements can be made.

DROP-IN programs: You will need to register for your spot in each session, up to the night before.  For example, if you want to try Snowshoeing on Saturday, you will need to register by Friday at 11:59 PM.

All programs are subject to change at any point.   The CPRA is working with the City of Saskatoon to provide safe but fun programs for everyone. As such, all programs are based on the most recent SK COVID-19 Guidelines (effective December 17th) but will be adjusted to fit any future updates to the Re-Open Saskatchewan guidelines.  As of January 4th, 2021, CPRA programs will be restricted as such: All rink activities are limited to 8 participants under 18-years-old and off-ice programs are restricted to 10 participants of any age. These numbers are likely to change based on future updates from the Province. We will open the on-ice activities up to all-ages if the Province allows.  This page will be updated if and as regulations change.

*** MASKS ARE MANDATORY DURING ALL PROGRAMS***

All programs will be held in Dr. Gerhard Herzberg park.  Meet by the ice rink at 121 Campion Crescent (just north of Cardinal Leger School).

Programs Being Offered

Weekly Winter Shenanigans is a weekly pre-registered drop-in class with new activities every week. This program is for ALL AGES because everyone can be a kid in the snow! The activities currently planned include ice skating, quinzhee-making, igloo-making, tobogganing, snow-shoeing, curling, and building snow-people (or inukshuks), and broomball. There will be supervisors at the park for this program’s duration; however, parents must stay with their children in case of an emergency.

Learn to Skate is a scheduled program. This program is for UNDER-18s.  There are six different classes each week, so that participants will go to one session each week based on their registered time. We have skates, helmets, knee pads and elbow pads available if you do not have your own equipment – please indicate what you will need on your registration form.

Hockey Skills is a weekly pre-registered drop-in class.  This program is for UNDER-18s.  The instructors will teach new skills that are appropriate for the levels of the participants. There will be fun games as well! This session is an excellent opportunity to learn and practice hockey specific skills, such as shooting, passing and stick handling. There will likely be less skating drills than a usual hockey practice to maintain more physical distancing. (All genders welcome!). Come try out hockey! Equipment available upon request.

Ringette Skills is a weekly pre-registered drop-in class.  This program is for UNDER-18s.  The instructors will teach new skills that are appropriate for the levels of the participants. There will be fun games as well! This session is an excellent opportunity to learn and practice ringette specific skills, such as shooting, passing and ring handling. There will likely be less skating drills than a usual ringette practice to maintain more physical distancing. (All genders welcome!). Come try out ringette! Equipment available upon request.

Snowshoeing for Fun is a weekly pre-registered drop-in class. This program is for ALL AGES.  We have snow-shoes available to use, or you can bring your own. You strap them onto your winter boots (or other sturdy footwear), and away you go! As a class, we will follow the leader and enjoy a walk through the snowy park.
