Rugby for kids

Little Kids Rugby starts this Friday, for kids five to eight years of age. 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.

Circus is coming

Have you heard? The circus is coming to Rossland, on Saturday May 11. This circus includes performers and acrobats, but no animals. Show times: 4:30-7 p.m. Doors open one hour prior to show. Tickets are sold at Delicious Baby and Kids Boutique. Pre-sale tickets include adult: $15 and children $7. Tickets at the door include: adults: $20 and child $10.

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. The program provides them with the skills they need to feel safe and confident in stressful situations, household mishaps and in the event of an emergency. This course is for children ages 10-13 years.

Lifeguard training

Trail Parks and Recreation is offering an NLS Course at the end of June. NLS (National Lifeguard Standard) is one of the required courses needed to become employable as a lifeguard.
