When a class has been cancelled due to instructor illness or weather conditions, a class will be added on at the end of the session. If this is not possible, you will be issued a refund in the amount of the missed class. Oops, changed your plans?: A refund will be issued if we receive applicable withdrawal notification. Programs and lessons require five (5) or more days’ notice prior to course start date. Camps and certification courses require seven (7) or more days’ notice prior to course start date. If appropriate notice is not given, no refund will be issued. There may be other exceptions to these guidelines. In some cases, these exceptions will be noted in the individual course description. To request a refund, please contact the facility that is offering your program. All program refunds are subject to a $5 processing fee. Extended Illness / Injury: In cases of extended illness or injury, a prorated refund may be granted upon provision of a medical note. Missed Classes: Classes missed due to sickness, vacation, or other reasons will not be refunded. Sorry, the course is full: If a program is full, please ask staff to put your name on our waitlist. Staff reviews these lists continually and we will do our best to accommodate those waitlisted. Customer Satisfaction: We care about your experience in our programs. Please contact one of our Programmers directly to discuss any questions, comments, or concerns that you have with our recreation programs.

Physical Literacy

Physical literacy is the key to being

ACTIVE FOR LIFE What is Physical Literacy?

Physical Literacy is the motivation, confidence, physical competence, knowledge and understanding to value and take responsibility for engagement in physical activities for life. (The International Physical Literacy Association, May 2014) Physical activity is a lot more fun when we’re physically literate. If we want children to be active for life, they need to develop physical literacy at a young age. Physicalliteracy.ca offers coaches, recreation professionals and health practitioners access to a wide range of resources that can help people become physically literate.

What are Fundamental Movement Skills?

Fundamental movement skills are the foundation for an active life. This list contains 25 fundamental movement skills which children can learn: 99 99 99 99 99 99 99 99

Sports and Activities

Kat Ellis Gymnastics & Acro Instructor Kat discovered her passion for gymnastics at the age of 6, retired from competitive gymnastics at 14, and began coaching at 15. She has always been inspired by individuals who have the passion and desire to improve their coordination and strength. Although gymnastics was her first love, she found dance as an expressional outlet at the age of 11. Choreographing routines for her performance tumbling team throughout her teenage years greatly assisted her creative development, and in high school she was awarded “Choreographer of the Year” for her contribution to the dance program. On top of her 12 years’ experience coaching and 5 years’ experience teaching dance, she is a certified yoga instructor and has also completed her Level 1 Mat Pilates. She prioritizes safe body mechanics, implementing her knowledge regarding alignment and effective progressions into her programs. She feels fortunate to work in a rewarding field where she can assist people in fostering personal growth.

Parenting Triple P Group Program

For Parents of Children Ages 2 - 12 Parenting is very rewarding and enjoyable, but is also often challenging, frustrating and exhausting. Parents have the important role of raising the next generation, yet most people aren’t prepared for what lies ahead when they begin parenting.

This six-week course provides education in Triple P basics, and helps parents deal with almost any parenting situation, in ways that are best suited to their own families. Parents only, no childcare provided. Thursdays | Sept 27 - Nov 8 6:30 p.m. - 8:30 p.m. 6 Sessions FREE | Code: 0899 Shawnigan Lake Community Centre Instructor: Laurie Tonkin No session Oct 11
