As spring draws near, with the prospect of fresh starts and exciting opportunities in tow, there’s never been a greater time to embrace the spirit of the season and explore a new interest! Whether you’re looking to develop a unique skill or discover your next passion, City of Surrey offers a variety of programs and activities for all ages and abilities. Here are some of our latest seasonal offerings that’ll help strengthen your physical, mental and emotional wellbeing to enjoy a happier, healthier lifestyle.

The floor is yours

Temperatures are rising—not only outdoors, but indoors as well. The once-icy surfaces of Cloverdale Arena, Newton Arena, and North Surrey Sport & Ice Complex will soon be transformed to facilitate new dry floor programs! From March 16 to early September, little ones and their parents can experience a rolling good time during ‘Wheeling Wonders’ (ages 0-5)—which offers kids a chance to develop skills on their own bike, scooter, skateboard or other wheeled device amid a safe, non-structured environment.

For older kids, ‘Ball Hockey’ (ages 6–12 & 13–18) offers both seasoned players and beginners an opportunity to connect with others, form a team and enjoy the thrill of non-contact gameplay. Just be sure to bring your hockey gloves, stick, runners and CSA approved helmet with full cage to participate.

Get creative

Let the vibrant colours and pleasant sounds of spring serve as your muse for artistic exploration this season. During ‘Watercolour Landscapes’ (ages 18+), you’ll learn perspective, value and colour to create beautiful art that reflects the world around you. Alternatively, ‘Ukulele Beginner’ (ages 18+), offers an introductory course for budding musicians that teaches chords, finger placement and more to get you into the rhythm of things.

Perfect for the young visionary in your life, ‘Kid Architects’ (ages 7–11) draws upon globally-revered architecture to channel your child’s creativity and inspire them to construct imaginary worlds. Your architect-in-the-making will use drawing and painting techniques to experiment, plan and construct miniature buildings and cities, using clay and mixed-media materials.

Spring into action

Looking for a fun and effective way to stay active this spring? Our diverse fitness classes offer something for everyone! Utilize your body weight to enhance your core strength and flexibility during ‘TRX Suspension Training’ (ages 19+). This unique, strength-based workout will help you develop a consistent fitness routine, while boosting energy levels and reducing stress.

Amidst a supportive environment, you’ll learn to strengthen your body and connect with your little one through playful yoga postures that promote physical and emotional development for both parties. A fitting way to celebrate Mother’s Day, this unique bonding opportunity requires no previous yoga experience!

Though spring offers us some sunny days, the weather can remain unpredictable at times. Stay active and take shelter from the storms with ‘Indoor Cycling’ (ages 19+). Featuring a variety of drills, including hills, sprints and intervals, this non-impact workout helps you train with precision. Improve your cardiovascular fitness, enhance your abilities and peddle your way to a healthier you this season!
