Sizzling Summer 2008! E-Newsletter

Summer! A time to celebrate with family, take a vacation, stay active, and stay tuned… It’s been a while since we last updated our valued members on the exciting changes at Laurier Athletics & Recreation.

Thank you for your patience these last few months as we have moved to a new Membership Registration System.  We promise it will be easier come time to renew!

Enjoy Summer 2008!

NEW! This summer we will be offering fun swim times. Fun swims are designed for family and friends to come and enjoy some pool time together. We’ll fill the shallow end pool with toys and inflatable’s for all to enjoy. Fun swims are Saturdays and Sundays from 12-2pm in the shallow end of the pool as per the schedule posted on our web site
The fun swim is free for you and your family. For families who do not have a membership at our facility, they are able to purchase a swim pass for $4 dollars a person.

If you have any questions please contact the Hawk Desk at (519) 884-0710 ext 3803.  Please note the deep end of the pool will be set up for lane swims.

Q – Long weekends, BBQ’s, ice cream….How can I make sure my family continues being physically active this summer?
A - Here are just a few suggestions on how to keep active this summer:
Head to the Laurier Pool for a Summer Weekend FUN swim!
Start off by setting a good example and being physically active yourself. Our Summer hours fit your needs!
Plan active family time, creating as many opportunities for free play and outdoor play as possible. Stop by Alumni Field during open times to throw a ball around.
Whenever possible, walk or bike instead of driving.
Fly a kite in Waterloo Park!
