The Maples Community Centre offers several drop-in activities to its Amber Trails and Maples communities.
Cricket is a popular sport with local kids. The Maples CC development cricket program runs every Saturday from 1 to 4 p.m. in the gymnasium of Leila North School (20 Allan Blye Dr.).
The program runs until April 29 and children aged eight to 14 are welcome.
Cricket is one of the fastest growing sports in Canada. Several schools in Winnipeg now feature the game as one of their sport activities.
Northwest Winnipeg communities are considered the hotbed of cricket in Manitoba. Last summer, three under-16 youths (Simar Pannu, Tariq Daoud and Akram Hazrat) from the Maples development program were selected to represent Canada in a Toronto tournament.
Maples C.C. also invites the community to lace-up their skates and take advantage of their three regulation-size outdoor hockey rinks.
You are welcome to enjoy the fresh air, learn to skate, recreation skate with family and friends, have a pick-up hockey or sponge-ball game. Two of the rinks are located at the club’s 434 Adsum Dr. site. These rinks are open seven days a week and the rink lights are on until 9:30 pm.
The third Maples community rink is located at 40 Maberley Rd., next door to Elwick School. The lights there are on every Monday, Wednesday and Friday until 8 p.m. For additional info on these or other activities, call 204-953-1190 or email email@example.com
