Getting set for winter

Swimming at the beach may be less inviting as the lake gets chilly(er), but the yearly Nelson and District Community Complex pool maintenance is over and regular pool hours have resumed. Swimming laps or lessons are up and running again. Check out rdck.bc.ca for schedule and registration.

Fall sport registration time is definitely here.

Although Nelson Minor Hockey’s registration is over, the association welcomes new registrants any time. There is a need for coaches this year and a hybrid coaching clinic will be hosted by Nelson Minor Hockey Association on September 23 and 25. See nelsonmha.ca for details.

Rep hockey tryouts started earlier this month and all practices start in October.

Registration for the Whitewater Ski and Board Club and Ski and Snowboard Freeride teams is now open. Book in before the early bird deadline of September 30 and save 10 per cent.

The Ski and Board Club is a 10-week program that will naturally develop a child’s skills through fun activities and games.
