The course is being offered on Fridays, from 3-4 p.m. on the MacLean Elementary School field and runs for the remainder of May and June and then picks up again in September. The program teaches the basics of non-contact rugby and helps develop a child’s basic motor skills by focusing on activities that develop balance, co-ordination and agility.

Babysitters course

The Babysitters Course has been postponed to Saturday, May 25 9 a.m.-4 p.m. at the Rossland Arena Lounge in order for more youth to register. If your child is interested in babysitting this summer, this is a great course to prepare them for that responsibility. The eight-hour course covers eight topics, including; responsibilities, child development, nutrition, behavior, emergencies, safety and first aid, illness, physical challenges and special needs issues.

Home Alone

The last Home Alone course before summer is being offered on Wednesday, June 12 from 6-8:30 p.m. This is a great course to prepare your child for summer and times that they may be left alone, at home.

This course is for children ages 10-13 years.
