-Biggest Loser Boot Camp is on Mondays and Thursdays (participants must attend both classes) from 830-930 pm
-Masterchef is offered on Mondays only at Tommy Douglas Collegiate

If there are any further questions or concerns, please email our Director of Programs at [email protected]
Again, please refer to our website for all program information.
The Leisure Guide deadline is in October. Many changes within the school schedule and bookings has occurred since then. Additionally, our instructors have had changes to their schedules that we have had to accommodate. We apologize for any inconvenience, and look forward to seeing everyone at registration night on January 7. 🙂
Grab your skates and head on out, because skating season is here!
Public skating is scheduled, unless the temperature is above 0 or below -25 with the windchill:
Mondays & Wednesdays: 6-8 pm
Sundays: 1-3 pm
The boot room will be open during these times so there is a warm place to put on your skates. Have a new or beginner skater in your family? No problem! During public skate times skate aids are available.
Please be respectful of other skaters and the ice! The ACA assumes no responsibility/liability for lost items, accidents or other incidents that occur on the rink.
Volunteers are needed to assist with supervising the public skating. Please email [email protected] if you are able to help out so we can continue to keep the boot room open. And we always appreciate it if everyone can assist with shoveling the rink of snow and ice to keep the rink clean: when a couple people shovel it goes quickly.
Looking forward to seeing you all out on the ice!
The Avalon Community Association will be hosting their second annual skate and slide on Sunday, December 9. Come on by the John Lake Park & Rink between 1 and 4:30pm to enjoy an afternoon of skating and sledding with your neighbours as well as your community association members.
There will be TimBits, hot chocolate and coffee to keep you warm and energized! The boot room will be open for warming up and changing into your skates, and skate aids will be available to help the littlest ones on the ice.
Our sponsors again this year are Smitty’s (Market Mall location), who are providing the beverages, and the ACA’s very own Scott Schierling (ReMax Saskatoon), who is donating TimBits.
This is a weather-permitting event, so be sure to check out our Facebook page on the day of the event in case of cancellation.
Hollywood is coming to Avalon on June 8! 🎬 We will be presenting “THE MUPPETS” (Disney 2011)
The ACA is hosting a family movie night at John Lake School. Doors open at 6pm, movie starts at 6:30. Admission is free for this all ages event. There will be a full concession with proceeds going back to the ACA. 🍿
No chairs will be permitted at this event, so bring your pillows and blankets and curl up with your family for a night at the movies 🎥 ! We also respectfully request that you support our Association and, therefore, no outside food or drink will be permitted.
We look forward to seeing you all on June 8! 😀
The ACA extends a huge THANK YOU to Shaw and the 8th Street London Drugs Location for their support of our event.
When you attend registration night, enter our draw and have a chance to win your class registration for FREE!! We will have a drum on Monday night and will draw one name following registration; that lucky person will win the registration fee to ONE class. This is only available to individuals who attend registration night. Good luck!
Registration for programs is on January 8th, 2018 630-8pm at John Lake School gymnasium. We accept cash or cheques only. Payment is due at time of registration. Please ensure you bring proof of community association membership in the form of membership card or receipt to registration. The ACA honours membership from other Saskatoon community associations. Memberships ($10 per family or individual) will be available to purchase at registration. Any registrations received after January 8 will be subject to a $10 late fee per class.
Registration is on a first come, first serve basis and spots in classes are limited, therefore we suggest arriving early to ensure you receive a spot in the class(es) you wish to register for.
The ACA provides Cost-As-A-Barrier for those individuals/families wishing to participate in our programming but are facing financial difficulties. The Membership fee is the responsibility of these individuals. Please contact [email protected] for more information or speak to a board member on registration night.
Please review the program schedule under “programs” as it differs slightly from the Leisure Guide. The schedule on our website and in the newsletter delivered to homes this coming weekend is correct.
Board members will be in attendance at registration night to answer any questions you may have. You may also email our Director of Programs, Angela Strand, at [email protected]
Looking forward to seeing you all next week!
