We have some really exciting events happening for 2018!
Strong Girls On ICE!
January 28, 2018; 11am – 1pm, Cindy Klassen Recreation Complex
Join F.I.T. Girls and Manitoba Speed Skating for a fun event that promises to build your skating skills and your confidence!
This event is open to all girls 5 -17. This event features not only trying the fun sport of speed skating and a confidence building session, but also an inspirational talk from Legendary Olympian and Winnipegger Susan Auch!
You will get to skate on the oval that bares Susan Auch’s name! Susan is a 5 time Olympian speed skater that won 3 medals spanning over 10 years: Bronze in the 1988 Winter Olympics, Silver in the 1994 Winter Olympics and Silver medal in the 1998 Winter Olympics. She is an absolute role model for girls in sport!
No previous speed skating experience necessary and skates available to borrow for the event.
Girls Empowerment Event – Three Part Series
February 18, March 4, March 18, 2018; 1 – 3pm, The Yoga Barre
We are so pumped to be able to host a 3 Part Series of our awesome Girls Empowerment Event for girls 10 and up!
The event is going to comprised of 3 sessions – each two weeks apart. This format will allow us to really get to know the girls better in order to really delve into both goal setting and confidence building. As such, the sessions will be limited to a small number of girls. All sessions will be held at the Yoga Barre and the dates will be as follows:
- February 18, 2018; 1 – 3 pm
- March 4, 2018; 1 – 3 pm
- March 18, 2018; 1 – 3 pm
Just like our past Girls Empowerment Events, we will incorporate a fun fitness component and special guest speakers! The girls will be able to try Zumba, Barre and even Boxing with a WORLD Champion Female Boxer! Amazing!
Each girl that signs up will receive a Confidence Workbook ($16 value). We will be using this as one of our tools in the sessions. There are lots of items in the workbook so that the girls can continue to build on their confidence between the sessions and after they are complete.
Remember these sessions are ONLY FOR GIRLS AGES 10 and older! (We have something also coming up for girls ages 5-9 only happening in March!!)
Girls Empowerment Spring Break Camp!
We are so excited to host our first ever SPRING BREAK CAMP! This camp is 3 hours each day for 3 days (M/W/F) over spring break for girls ages 5 – 10. Girls will be divided up into groups based on ages and requests for friends/siblings to be together are welcome!
The Camp will be from 9 AM – 12 NOON at the Yoga Barre on Roblin on March 26, 28 and 30 (Monday, Wednesday, Friday). This is a great way to get your girls out for some fun and fitness while you run some errands solo!
The 3 days will be packed with activities including Zumba & Dance, Confidence Games, Crafts, Boxing and Barre classes! We are even going to have former World Champion Female Boxer Olivia Gerula give an inspirational talk to the girls about girls in sport!
Each day of the camp, girls are asked to bring a water bottle and peanut & nut-free snack, wear clothes to move in and a willingness to try new things!
