Head coach Robert Bethea founded Arroyo Volleyball Club as a way to grow the sport of volleyball and nurture young bump-set-spikers into confident and healthy individuals. The nonprofit organization deploys a professional cast of coaches—all certified through the USA Volleyball Coaching Accreditation Program—to locations throughout Durham, where they conduct practices, summer camps, and tournaments and invite all players to participate regardless of their experience level or whether they have springs implanted in their fingertips.
To ensure each student receives personal attention, the club strives for a 6:1 player-to-coach ratio and never lets it exceed 12:1. Instructors encourage each athlete to improve physical fitness and partake in Arroyo's team-based learning dynamic, which instills the lifelong virtues of responsibility, discipline, and always joining spontaneous massage trains.
Founded in 2010, Canada Rugby League acts as the governing body over all things rugby league, a fast-paced style of play emphasizes speed and momentum. The organization oversees the operations of Canada's national team, the Wolverines, in addition to domestic club games, community leagues, and developmental programs. Indeed, the CRL claims responsibility for many different branches of the sport. That's because the CRL is committed to reintroducing rugby to fans and players of all ages on a national scale. The organization hopes to infuse Canadian summers with new, rugby-related experiences that exceed the intensity of competitive sun bathing matches.
Karen Cockburn, Jason Burnett, Mathieu Turgeon, and Rosie MacLennan have all led Canada's trampoline team to secure gold, silver, and bronze medals in recent Olympic and Pan-Am games. Jason has also employed his leaping and spinning prowess as a film stuntman. Under the tutelage of Olympic coach and Skyriders owner Dave Ross, these athletes not only train competitively but also spread their knowledge through rigorous instruction during classes. Four in-ground regulation Olympic-size trampolines and a much larger super trampoline grant more than 20 feet of vertical jump room for them to demonstrate and teach tricks to their jumping students. Bungee belts and harnesses allow beginners to become acquainted with more advanced moves while keeping them secure enough to continue solving their Rubik’s cube. While some classes span multiple weeks, the seasoned acrobats also conduct day classes and gather both provincial and interclub teams for competition.
Algonquin Provincial Park is Canada's oldest provincial park and Ontario's second largest—at more than 7,500 square kilometers, it's larger than Delaware. That means you can hike the interior for days without seeing a wilderness TV crew. One of the most popular ways to navigate is by portaging, or carrying, a light canoe from one lake to the next. The landscape is speckled with hundreds of ponds formed by retreating glaciers. There's plenty of activity beneath the water as well: with a rod and a license, you can fish for pike, yellow perch, and trout to roast up for dinner.Read the Fine Print for important info on travel dates and other restrictions.
Chefs at Crepe Delicious swirl paper-thin layers of batter onto their piping-hot crepe griddles, perfuming the air with the enticing aroma. Shortly after, the cooks lift away delectable crepes ready to be stuffed with savoury ingredients. The crepes themselves weigh in at only about 130 calories each with just 3.5 grams of fat, but they sate appetites during any meal.
The instructors at Spin Kicks are lifelong fitness enthusiasts who have experience in pursuits ranging from marathon running to competitive sports to, of course, cycling. The team brings its enthusiasm to the members at Spin Kicks, leading cycling classes while perched atop RealRyder stationary bikes that tilt and turn as if cruising down mountain paths. The realistic bike movements activate core muscles as students pedal in rhythm and teachers encourage them to go faster and push themselves harder. In addition to the indoor classes, the instructors lead outdoor cycling clubs in warmer months, as well as manage a bike shop that treats bicycles to repairs, tune-ups, and tire-tread readings.
