  • Print

You wouldn’t believe it when you look out your front window or head out doors, but those keeping tabs on the groundhog should hopefully see spring in the next few weeks.

For those that enjoy spring and summer outdoor activities, this is probably the best news since your season started off last year, and the weather is definitely top of mind for anyone who may be signing up for recreational sports in the coming weeks.

Keep an eye on your calendar, as regular registration for youth outdoor soccer will be winding up this Sunday March 17 at 5 p.m. Those interested in registering for the upcoming season or those who want more information can hop online to the Charleswood Youth Soccer Association’s website at charleswoodsoccer.com.

Those interested in minor baseball have missed the main deadline, but there are still spaces available for the upcoming season. More information, dates, and registration information is available on the Charleswood Minor Baseball Association website at charleswoodbaseball.com

If you have a young football player who wants to hit the field this season, final registration dates have yet to be confirmed, but should get underway the first week of May. Regular updates will be posted to charleswoodbroncos.com.

There are plenty of recreational spring and summer sports for adults to get involved in. Slo-Pitch, flag football, Ultimate frisbee, dodgeball, floor hockey and volleyball are just some of the activities available at various venues around Winnipeg. Those interested in more information should go online to websites such as winnipegrecleague.com or leisureonline.ca.

Sports aside, there are activities for all ages thanks to the City of Winnipeg. This is the 120th year the city has made a commitment to enhancing the quality of life for Winnipeggers with parks and recreation services.

Registration for the City of Winnipeg’s leisure guide programs started this past Tuesday and Wednesday, however spaces are available in a majority of the programs. To view a copy of the leisure guide, registration information, or more details on one of several available courses go to leisureonline.ca or call 311.
