Pucks soar and sticks clack during Ice Center Hockey League clinics targeted at both ice initiates and experienced hockey maestros. Six-week and nine-week Learn2Play beginner clinics require only a basic skating knowledge, as students will get to learn and practice such fundamental hockey skills as stickhandling, shooting, and the triple lutz. After becoming familiar with the basics in on- and off-rink instruction sessions, players take to the ice in a scrimmage game to practice in a competitive setting. The Hockey 101 sessions provide established players with more advanced tutelage, offering additional instruction in positioning fundamentals and strategy so that players know not to fall for the old phony-goalie trick. Drop-in passes allow players to join in on either a Learn2Play or a Hockey 101 session.

Eugene Uketoberfest lures ukulele lovers from near and far with two full days of workshops, concerts, and strumming circles. Instead of pouring Pixy Stix into their ears, guests can treat their aural senses to the sweet sounds of Hawaiian string king Craig Chee, multi-instrumentalist Victoria Vox, and uke-toting doo-wop troupe The Refreshments, plus more than a dozen other artists. Many performers will host workshops, teaching traditional topics such as strumming techniques (Friday at 9:30 a.m.) and hammer-on and pull-off effects (Friday at 11 a.m. and Saturday at 2:10 p.m.), as well as unusual skills such as pizza-box drumming (Saturday at 1 p.m.). As adults ogle handcrafted ukes from Mya-Moe and SpruceHouse, plucky youngsters can rehearse tunes with a teacher and kids their own age. Grownup ukesters will also have ample chances to play with others, including identical twins Greg and Jere Canote, who will host a jam session and peanut-butter food fight on Saturday at 3:45 p.m.

On Saturday, May 5, and Sunday, May 6, a sea of vendors and spa technicians transform the Lane Events Center into an escape for women of all ages. The Just for Women Expo's two days of sensory indulgence and shopping benefit visitors twice over, as 50% of ticket-sale profits are donated to organizations dedicated to women's health. This year, comedienne, stress-management expert, and author Leigh Anne Jasheway sets the expo's tone with a keynote speech and by filtering the audience's laughter through auto-tune, which then harmonizes with a number of personal-enrichment seminars. Winetasting and fashion shows punctuate hours of bargain hunting, and raffle tickets given to each guest offer a chance to win a Girlfriends Getaway for four.

Girls Night Out caps Saturday's events with four hours of catered spa pampering and revelry for those 21 and older. Gentlemen servers swing past makeover stations carrying trays of hors d'oeuvres, and 15-minute massages and bites from a chocolate buffet revive guests after belly-dance lessons. Guests to this event also take home goodies and enjoy two free drinks apiece to toast their superior toasting skills.

A former three-sport standout at the University of Oregon and current Oregon sports commentator, Jordan Kent employs his athletic experience to lead kids' day camps filled with football, basketball, and soccer drills and competitions. Part of the nonprofit Jordan Kent Foundation, Jordan Kent Skill Camps seek to build self-confidence and discipline in young athletes of all ability levels. For one week, campers train under Jordan and his team of coaches comprised of local high-school athletes, former college athletes, and adult volunteers. The camps aim to teach boys and girls ages 7–13 the value of character and hard work as they engage in a series of scrimmages and contests. A nutritious lunch is provided each day to keep energy levels high, and coaches also build nutrition education into the camps to jumpstart healthy eating habits. On the last day, campers leave with a cookbook full of good snack and meal ideas, as well as a SportHill T-shirt, helping kids remember their time at camp without having to create elaborate cave paintings on the walls of their forts.

Over the course of his career, PGA professional Sean McGowan has held a variety of positions in the golf business, from golf course operations to golf car sales and service. It wasn't until 1991 that Sean finally realized his true passion: teaching golf. In 1991 and 1996, the PGA certified Sean, and since then, he’s twice earned the honor of a spot on the PGA President’s Council on Growing the Game. The list pays tribute to instructors who are able to motivate adult golfers and make them feel comfortable enough to hit the links more frequently. He teaches private lessons at RiverRidge Golf Complex, a collection of three distinct courses owned and operated by the Jeffries family. Golfers play on the 18-hole; 9-hole executive; and 9-hole, par-3 courses, and hone swings with Sean on the covered practice range and chipping, pitching and putting greens to improve their shot.

Most 5Ks feature participants in sweat-wicking T-shirts and shorts sprinting toward the finish line. But The Sweater Dash is different. During the fun run, runners and walkers don ugly sweaters to ring in the holiday season. Following the festive jaunt, participants head to the Ugly Sweater Party to celebrate their achievement with live music and holiday food. To add to the merriment, the event includes an award ceremony for Ugliest Sweater and a meet-and-greet with Santa, during which the winner of the Ugliest Sweater award can ask him for more stylish clothing.
