Welcome back everyone! Can’t believe it is that time again!  Mark January 10th & 12th from 7-8:30 pm in the small gym at Brunskill School, on your calendars! It is winter registration!

I am excited to tell you we are offering two new programs. For all who want to try something different come and check out Fibre Explorations and Going Within

Time to get busy, try yoga or badminton! If you are planning a trip, brush up on your Spanish! If stick men are your artistic capabilities, broaden your capability by taking an art class! Want something to do with whole family, then come on out and give Tae Kwon Do a try!

How about learning a new skill, skating on our new rink! (we need some workers to step up or this will not be a possibility)

There are a few options to consider!!! See you soon!

If you cannot make the registration nights, you may contact me at blgiles@sasktel.net and I will be happy to assist.

No Fall 2021 soccer

Unfortunately, VVCA has decided to not offer a fall 2021 soccer season in order to be fully prepared for a strong spring 2022 season.

As we prepared for the fall season, we discovered that we did not have enough time to integrate with the Saskatoon Youth Soccer Inc. RAMP registration system to make it easy for parents and players to register. We plan to be fully integrated with RAMP to offer a seamless registration process for the Spring 2022 season. We apologize for any inconvenience.

See the Saskatoon Youth Soccer website for alternative options: http://saskatoonyouthsoccer.ca/content/how-to-register

Gentle Zoom Yoga With Miranda (Mondays)

First class: April 19, 2021. Last class: June 14, 2021.

Yoga has been my saviour throughout these stressful times. Once we get the technical stuff sorted this class is designed to help even the most “Zoom jaded” participant find physical and mental ease, joy, and clarity during the winter days ahead. It will include gently energizing supported and standing poses with minimal props and a strong focus on centring, breathing, and relaxation. I have missed my yoga community and hope to see you soon on Zoom!

Conversational Spanish

First class: Tuesday, April 20, 2021. Last class: June 22, 2021.

I am very eager to share once again my knowledge and experience of over 30 years of teaching Spanish to students of all ages and levels in Saskatoon.
Beginners – Come learn basic Spanish greetings, alphabet numbers, colors, key question words, days of the week, months of the year, uses of verb to be and everyday useful sentences. You will be introduced to speaking Spanish using both formal and informal ways of addressing people.
Intermediate / Advanced – If you already know the basics you can get a chance to practice with other students and learn about the most common verbs in the present, past and future forms.

Conversational Italian

First class: Friday, April 23, 2021. Last class: June 25, 2021.

“It is a beginner class to get you learning a new language. The focus will be learning basic Italian phrases to help you have your first interaction in the language. The course is perfect for anyone that dreams about learning Italian or plans to visit the country one day (yes, we will be able to travel to Italy one day). The course will hosted on zoom and we will be able to watch Italian movies and other shows to practice the listening part.
