Mountain Bike Academy Program

Seven Summits Centre for Learning is working on a Mountain Bike Academy program for local youth.  The program will start in April and run until June. Program details include; trail building, bike maintenance, instruction and coaching and a trip or two out of town to check out the trails and Mountain Bike Parks in BC.  More information will be available soon.

 

Girls Softball

This is a great opportunity for Rossland girls to learn how to play softball, with retired Thurnderpitch coaches

Brian Pipes and Richard Rhodes. Instruction will be delivered in a positive, structured environment designed to      provide girls with the opportunity to become better ball players. All aspects of the game will be reviewed and taught to all levels.

Concentration will be on the basics with emphasis on throwing, catching, running and batting mechanics, progressing to more advanced skills. The program will start in the arena and then as the weather improves, the program will move to Cooke Avenue. Girls are required to have a glove. The Instructors will help you to decide which glove to buy, if your daughter doesn’t already have one. The program starts on Wednesday, April 16 with two sessions for different ages: girls 12-15 years from 3:30-5 p.m. and girls 8-11 years from 5-6 p.m.

 

Lacrosse Development Program for youth

Learn the fundamentals of Canada’s oldest sport and get fit doing it.  Your child will be learning in a controlled environment from a certified coach and long time player. Players will need a helmet with face cage (a hockey or lacrosse helmet is preferred), padded gloves (hockey style or lacrosse designated), a lacrosse stick (some will be provided and they are available at Canadian Tire). Although this will be a skills training and conditioning program, lacrosse is a physically demanding sport. The program begins in April and runs on Wednesdays, from 6-8 p.m. in the Rossland Arena.
