The staff at National Hockey Training Centre takes the official national winter sport seriously. Not only do they lead group programs throughout the year for both children and adults, but they also offer one-on-one ice training. During these 30-minute sessions, coaches help individuals meet specific goals, such as competing on a regional team or mastering the backwards skate in order to gracefully exit an escalating argument with a Zamboni driver.
With the propeller of a Cessna 180 whirring just above its glassy surface, the Fraser River appears to tremble in anticipation of the floatplane’s imminent takeoff. After launching off the aquatic runway, the roaring plane elevates above British Columbia’s wilderness as passengers peer out at the lakes and glacier valleys below.
This is just another day at work for Fort Langley Air, Ltd.’s experienced pilots, who regularly soar above the mountains and glaciers of Garibaldi Provincial Park and Pitt River valley on sightseeing tours, charter flights, and seaplane training courses. While manning the plane’s controls, pilots point out native wildlife, interesting rock formations, and ice sculptures carved by the mountains’ reclusive yetis. Their charter services allow passengers to easily bypass less scenic forms of public transportation, and their seaplane rating courses train pilots to safely land on water with 50 hours of flight time.

Named 1 of the Top 100 Golf Practice Centers And Learning Facilities In America by Golf Range Magazine in 2011, Eaglequest Coyote Creek Golf Course pairs its renowned practice facility with a par 65 course to foster improvement in players of all abilities. The 18-hole, 4,165-yard course facilitates fast rounds of golf with 7 par 3 and 11 par 4 holes, and 4 holes more than 300 yards in length, prompting players to use every club in their bags. Lines of trees stud the edges of nearly every fairway, a creek winds through the course’s gently undulating terrain to alter shots, and a tennis player with a racquet plays defense on the final hole.
Before golfers head to the first tee, they can loosen up their swings by launching high-calibre practice balls at Eaglequest's synthetic driving range. To further groom their games, clubbers can schedule lessons with one of the course's CPGA instructors, who remedy slice-prone swings, shaky short-game shots, and 9-irons stricken with the common cold.
At K Fitness, a team of instructors trains students in the art of self-defense as though they will one day have to use it. The instructors understand that, on the street, all tournament rules fly out the window. That’s why, during kickboxing and MMA classes, they simulate real-world encounters, such as knife attacks, in addition to teaching the fundamentals of punching and kicking. Staging these encounters helps students of all ages build the confidence—as well as the physical fitness—to answer such unforeseeable confrontations.
FreeStyle Dance Centre boasts more than 5,000 square feet of studio space including three large dancing rooms where dancers of all skill levels attend programs ranging from competitive to recreational dance under the tutelage of Royal Academy of Dance–certified and experienced instructors. Teachers such as life-long dancer Alysha Williams start their students' training early, guiding toddlers through basic positions in their Tiny Dance program, and seeing some of them through to advanced pointe classes—making manifest their belief in ballet as the bedrock of dance education. During each class series, pupils learn a dance to be performed in costume at a year-end show as a way for newly formed dancing gurus to showcase their talents. FreeStyle also offers professionally sprung floors that preserve dancer's knees and large lounge areas that allow waiting guardians to watch their up-coming star through viewing windows or to practice their own rendition of Swan Lake.
