Greatness starts this Fall/Winter with Recreation Penticton

NEWS RELEASE

As summer draws to a close and the weather starts to change, it’s time for new programs to begin through the Penticton Community Centre. Recreation Penticton’s Fall/Winter 2019-2020 Recreation Guide is available to view online at www.penticton.ca/recreation . Residents can look forward to seeing another guide full of new and returning programs to help kick start their fitness or recreation goals.

As with past recreation guides, there are a variety of different programs available, including those catered for winter weather enthusiasts. Be sure to look for snowshoeing courses and skating lessons, as well as the returning Kids Community Hockey Club, a hockey program for young players of all skill levels.

Youth can look forward to more Parkour and Ninjutsu classes as well as a new basketball drop-in on Wednesday evenings. In Partnership with Foundry Penticton, the popular Swim and Gym will be returning on select Friday nights for youth.

Those interested in fitness classes can look for new programs such as Bellyfit® and Tabata, a high intensity interval training workout focusing on endurance and cardiovascular exercises. Check out other fitness classes available for all active interests including Tai Chi, Zumba, Yoga as well as pool, aquatic fitness and drop-in sports schedules.

With registration only a few short days away, this is the perfect time to ensure that you are registration ready by activating your account with the Community Centre’s new registration and booking system.

The Recreation Guide is available online for viewing and paper copies will be delivered to residents on August 21. Register for programs by visiting 325 Power Street, calling 250-490-2426, or through the new online registration and booking system on the City’s website.
