If there were a city built just for kids, it would likely include towers to climb on, bouncy platforms to make them fly, and a seemingly endless number of games to play. That may have been what the team had in mind when putting together Kid City, where all of these activities converge in one place for parties, daycare groups, and families looking for a break from their routine. The indoor play centre also offers all-day summer camps for kids aged 5–10.
Fairways wind through groves of trees and cattail-lined marshland to form Oakwood Golf Course's 18-hole, 6,045-yard layout. During the round, golfers are faced with water hazards that come into play on nine holes and demand accurate shots and amphibious golf carts. Atop the elevated tee box on the par-three 15th—the course's signature hole—golfers' tee shots must arch over a pond and stick on a contoured green 135 yards in the distance. Oakwood Golf Course's driving range and two separate practice greens prime swings for upcoming rounds with areas for putting, chipping, or discreetly kicking out of a bad lie. Course at a Glance: * 18-hole, par-72 course * Length of 6,045 yards from the farthest tees * Course rating of 69.1 from the farthest tees * Slope rating of 125 from the farthest tees * Three tee options * Scorecard
The Manitoba Paddling Association functions as the provincial sport governing body for local competitive canoeing, kayaking, and dragon boating. The association encourages the community to stay physically fit while still having fun through a variety of events such as races, year-round programs, and annual Dragon Boat festivals. Events change according to the season, and include summer camps that school beginners in the kayaking basics, spring training that introduces tougher techniques for competitive teams, and winter programs that offer opportunities to stay fit on shore, such as cross-country skiing, indoor circuit and strength training, and swimming laps in the snow.
World Soccer Academy's goal is to elevate Canadian soccer to an elite level with training regimens culled from the world's finest soccer programs. The Academy instills sound fundamentals in young trainees with the help of the Coerver Method, a methodology developed by the late Dutch soccer manager Wiel Coerver designed to develop skills in a pyramidal fashion, beginning with individual ball-handling and advancing to more nuanced material, such as group attack tactics and covert hand-balling.
Though committed to fostering young talent, the Academy's seven-stage player development program prescribes proper training methods for players of all ages. The Academy also sponsors WSA Winnipeg, a team of elite players that compete against squads from Toronto, Michigan, and St. Louis in the USL Premier Development League.
Innovative Martial Arts’ team of experienced instructors is determined to impart the varied benefits of martial arts–from self-discipline to weight loss and confidence– upon Winnipeg’s citizens. In doing so, they work hard to tailor their mixed martial arts (MMA) curriculum to the needs of students and enable them to advance at their own pace while achieving their fitness goals.
A host of preschool and elementary programs focus on helping youngsters build character and self-esteem while developing discipline and controlling aggression. Alternatively, their dynamic, high-energy adults program combats workout boredom via a challenging mix of self-defence moves and flexibility-bolstering exercises. Along with traditional MMA classes, they also hosts fitness boot camps, which marry martial arts techniques with plyometrics, core training, and agility training. The camps help pupils develop strong, chiselled bodies slim enough to fit back into their favourite pair of high school sunglasses.

This laid-back gym has three on-staff coaches and trainers, and members can drop in to work out in a class or on their own any time the gym is open.
Designed as an 18-hole golf course in 1917, Assiniboine Golf Club gave up half of its layout so it could be used as military runways in the early 1940s. The Club owners made the most of their remaining nine holes by building a total of 18 tee boxes and three additional greens so that golfers could enjoy distinct front- and back-nine experiences.
When played as an 18-hole round, the course measures 6,167 yards, across which golfers must contend with water hazards, trees, and sandtraps, which may feature trap doors that open into deeper, sandier sandtraps. The course also includes a 242-yard par three that will have many players unsheathing a driver or three-wood just to reach the green in regulation. After a day at the links, golfers can watch the sun set or the grass grow from the outdoor patio of the course-side restaurant, which serves a menu of burgers, wings, and other pub classics.
