Does anyone feel like they need a vacation and a little family fun?
We’re already dealing with work, school, and restrictions. And now winter is coming. Most people have had a challenging year and it can sometimes be tricky to find joy in the middle of daily life. But we know that staying active, learning new skills, and doing things with the people we love can bring sunshine to our everyday. WinSport at Canada Olympic Park is here to make that just a bit easier for you!
Located within the city, WinSport offers a convenient, accessible place to play, learn, and stay active all year long. Winter is simply an asset when WinSport makes it so easy to have fun! Take a look at the Ski and Snowboard Lessons offered at WinSport this year; the whole family will benefit from being outside and learning or refining their skills.
WinSport believes in building the skills to enjoy sport, from picking yourself up after you fall to gaining mastery in whatever you choose to pursue. Sport can help kids (and adults!) build confidence, learn perseverance, and develop amazing friendships with like-minded people. All this is still true, even as the WinSport Snow School has faced its own challenges in accommodating COVID-19 over the last year and a half.
If you have little ones you’d like to get on the hill, WinSport has some options to help you. Group lessons are back and they start for children as young as 3 years for skiing, and as young as 4 years for snowboarding. There are also Parent and Tot Ski Lessons for children 3 – 5 years and private lessons start at age 3.
For older kids, WinSport is running traditional ski and snowboard lessons. Kids ages 6 – 13 years can join youth lessons to help them gain confidence and improve their technique. These lessons help kids develop their skills in a fun and relaxed way, with skiing and snowboarding games and tactics. Group sizes are small, with a 1:6 ratio for kids. The lessons are suitable for any skill level and available in 2, 3, or 4 day lessons.
If your child is just beginning or hesitant, be sure to check out the Discover Lessons, for skiing or snowboarding. These one-day beginner lessons include rentals and help acclimatize your child to a new sport. There are also girls-only lessons for girls ages 8 – 13.
This winter you also have the opportunity to build and customize a private or family ski or snowboard lesson. All ages from 3 and up are welcome and it’s a unique opportunity to take lessons with your kids! It’s the perfect season to get the whole family involved for an active, engaging family fun day and learn something new or polish existing skills. Private lessons also allow a child to have a special focus and one-on-one instruction. These lessons are for 1 to 6 people. There are 1-hour options for younger kids who can’t stay out as long or 2-hour options for families who really want to get going. All you have to do is choose your day and time, with flexible choices like evenings or weekends, and what you’re hoping to learn. You can book multiple lessons and skills will develop faster with private or small group lessons, but be sure to get some lessons on your calendar soon, before it fills up!
We can’t stop winter from coming, but we sure can enjoy it this winter! Team up with WinSport Canada Olympic Park to discover the benefits of being fun and active outside. It’s the perfect year for families to play together and find their joy. Registration is now open, but spots are limited, so don’t delay.
