Swimming, skating, jumping, and running. You know what they say: the family that plays together, stays together! Enjoying recreational time together and staying active can be a big part of that, especially in a city where you might sometimes want to play indoors. Trico Centre for Family Wellness is a non-profit, community-operated fitness and wellness centre in south Calgary with everything your family needs to add value and satisfaction to your life.
What to Do?
The Trico Centre includes on-site childcare, a fitness centre, a gymnasium, and three fitness studios where you’ll find over 70 drop-in classes per week. The Aquatics Centre, with a wave pool, waterslide, steam rooms, and a hot tub is a favourite for both kids and adults and there are also two full-sized arenas. The social spaces help make this a true community hub, ideal for families who want to drop by, send their teens, or even book a birthday party. Drop-in for playtime, sports, or even gymnastics. Looking for friendly competition? Then you’ll definitely want to challenge your kids to see who is the Nerf Wars or Super Soaker champion of the weekend! Whatever you choose, Trico makes it easy for families to play and enjoy time together.
Programs for Young and Old
Whether you want to drop-in or register, Trico Centre for Family Wellness also has programs for every member of your family, making it fun and easy to stay active. And when an active lifestyle is fun and easy, we’re more likely to stick with it! Importantly, kids can develop those physical literacy skills that are so vital to well-being. Physical literacy recognizes that it is important to teach children fundamental movement and sports skills like how to throw, catch, run, and move.
No matter what your child or youth is interested in, they’ll find something they love. Trico offers everything from learn to skate and swimming programs (which are key for so many Calgary families) to a variety of sports, fitness, martial arts, dance, and gymnastics. Trico Centre can help kids develop a healthy, active lifestyle. These high-quality programs offer kids a safe environment. Programs are taught by qualified instructors who encourage independence and socialization. Focusing on building confidence and sparking creativity and imagination, they strive to deliver an environment where children feel valued, safe, and secure. Trico also has terrific options for adults, so you can model a healthy lifestyle for your family.
If you have young children, you’ll definitely want to check out Kids Korner Childcare. More than just babysitting, children are cared for by nurturing, qualified staff for an enjoyable playtime while you are somewhere else in the centre. Come to work out. Come to enjoy some quiet time. Either way, it contributes to your healthy life! The Trico Centre also has out-of-school care for a number of schools in the area, and don’t forget the amazing day camps that kids love! The Trico Day Camps are designed to fit every family, with drop-in daily and half-day camps, plus full-week camps available.
