This program will resume July 7 as the coordinator will be away. Sorry for any inconvenience.

For the first time ever, McLeod Community League is operating a summer basketball program. For this program, we have hired a full-time youth basketball co-ordinator. Thomas Jereniuk, our basketball coordinator, plays with the MacEwan University Griffins.
Thomas will be running programs focused on safe play and basketball skills for youth of all ages from Monday to Friday from 1:30pm to 8:30pm each weekday, weather dependent, from June 2nd to August 29th.

Highlights of the daily schedule include:

· 2:30 to 3:30 Supervised Play on both courts

· 3:30 to 4:30 Our East Court is reserved for girls only

· 4:30 to 5:30 Thomas will run drills on the West Court emphasizing basketball fundamentals

· 6:30 to 7:30 Thomas will run drills on the East Court emphasizing basketball fundamentals

There is no fee for participation. This is a drop-in program. Membership in McLeod Community League is encouraged, but not required. Basketballs are provided; no need to bring your own ball.

This program is funded in part by the Government of Canada’s Canada Summer Jobs program. Kilkenny Community League is also generously providing funding to help ensure the success of this program.

McLeod is Starting a Collective Kitchen

Collective Kitchens are small groups of people who get together on a regular basis to plan and cook meals. The members share ideas and recipes. They learn and improve their basic cooking skills. This includes planning, shopping and preparing meals for themselves and their families. By cooking together and sharing food, time and money are saved. Meals can be frozen and used when money is tight and time is limited.
If you are interested in participating or in helping organize the collective kitchen please email programs@mcleodcommunityleague.ca.
We are looking at starting in September or October.
