You’ve driven past. You’ve thought about classes. But is that it? The Niverville Community Resource & Recreation Centre welcomes you to discover all they have to offer!

Chantel Todd is the Interim Recreation Facility Manager, as well as Programmer with the Town of Niverville. According to Todd, the Niverville CRRC boasts plenty of teen and adult programs, as well as many drop-in opportunities. These include yoga, watercolour, acrylics, budgeting 101, Zumba, boot camp, barre fusion, kickboxing, Brazilian jiu-jitsu, wrestling, and qigong.

“We allow drop-ins for most of these programs. They run almost every weeknight, which is really exciting!” Todd continues, “We have drop-in sports for adults, too- drop-in volleyball on Wednesdays is very popular. As well as indoor soccer on Thursdays, and on Sundays the schedule includes adult basketball, pickleball, and 40+ rec hockey.”

These programs have been gaining momentum ever since the Centre opened, and staff have had little to no trouble keeping programs up and active year-round.

In addition to classes and programs, the facility also has plenty of spaces available for rent.

“Obviously, one of our most well-used spaces is our fieldhouse,” says Todd. “We can do basketball, volleyball, pickleball, badminton, floor hockey, ringette, and dry land training. We’ve also done some dodgeball, and we have inflatable batting cages as well. You can split the fieldhouse into three spaces, so we do lots of tournaments.”

Considering the relative recency of the building, many people visiting the Centre are often surprised at what it all offers.

“We also have two spaces that we use for fitness classes, birthday parties, meetings, and conferences. There’s the indoor playground, the community and commercial kitchens, the running and walking track… all available to rent.”, Todd continues. “It’s huge for the younger families. We also get lots of non-Nivervillians, which is great.”

New to their list of services is two Golf Simulators.

“There’s three sims in total, and they feature 15 top golf courses- we’ve noticed that the favourites are the Pebble Beach and Niagara Falls courses. People can book one-hour slots for up to four people for only $50,” Todd explains. “Or $45 an hour for members. We hope we can develop some leagues throughout the fall and winter, too.”

So how do you get in on all this? Just ask Camps and Recreation Programmer Cassandra Falk.

“It’s all on a membership basis,” Falk clarifies. “Anyone can buy a membership, and you can use that for the walking track or indoor playground. We also have open gyms scheduled in the fieldhouse from time to time, and public skating as well- membership gets you free access to those. Your membership could also potentially get you discounts. For example, right now we’re running our Summer Camp Promo, where members receive a 5% discount on registration. It’s very reasonably priced- we encourage everyone to come try it out.”

Speaking of summer camps, the Niverville Recreation Centre will be leading 28 camps this July and August. Catering to a wide variety of interests, these include nature, culinary, creative arts, and sports. Age groups are from 3 to 6, 6 to 9, and 9 to 13.

“We have lots of spots still available, yes,” Falk shares. “There are a few, though, that are close to being full. So, we encourage everyone to get in there as soon as they can, and to also take advantage of our early bird discount.”
