Calgary, AB,

Discover your potential with the new City of Calgary Fall Recreation Program Guide

The Fall Recreation Program Guide is now available online and on stands across Calgary and registration will be open on August 10, 2015. With more than 3,400 registered programs, The City of Calgary has many possibilities for you to learn new things, achieve new goals and discover your potential.

“For many Calgarians, September represents a time to get back to school or back to routine,” says Michelle Tait, program and service coordinator at The City of Calgary. “With the guides now available it gives people a chance to start planning their fall schedules while ensuring that elements of fun remain part of the routine. We have plenty of programs and opportunities for Calgarians to stay active, creative, healthy and have fun.”

The Fall Recreation Program Guide offers programs for all ages and abilities, and every session new classes are added to keep up with the changing needs and preferences of Calgarians. Some of the new programs to discover this season include rock climbing at Beltline’s 40-foot tall outdoor climbing wall, making cool sculptures in the ‘Upcycled Art’ program, or learning batting techniques in the youth-oriented ‘Cricket’ program. And while the guide is full of unique programs to discover, classic favourites like swimming lessons, ice skating, holiday day camps, and fine arts are also included.

“With registration opening up on August 10, take time this week to check out our program guide and discover something that excites you,” adds Tait. “Classes like ‘Karate – Tambo Training’ will have your young ones mimicking real ninjas. Or choose a program that will inspire you to spin, jump and glide like a professional figure skater.”
