The weather is making us think of spring!  It’s time to start thinking about some activities to get active in and at the same time enjoy the comradeship of meeting new friends or renewing friendships with people who have the same interests.  All the Saskatchewan Senior Fitness Association Districts will be holding Games in 2017 in their respective districts in May and June. These activities are to enhance the physical/intellectual lifestyle of our members. Check out 2017 District Games Schedule of the Regina Sport District.   See photos of people you may know by clicking Photos at the top of this page, then Albums and finding the 2016 Battlefords Provincial Games.  Check the events you want to compete in and start thinking about getting your runners ready and getting in shape, sharpening up your bridge or crib talents as well as polishing up those golf clubs.  In this nice weather, why not get out and practice your predicted walk times.  As well, get your thinking caps on and your imagination revved up as the theme for 2017 Poetry and Short Story event is The Joys of Being A Senior.  Your annual $10.00 membership entitles you to participate in all of the activities, with a few exceptions, without any further cost.

Registration Dates for Spring District Games Activities

The Regina Sport District will hold the intellectual and physical games in May and June, ranging from golf, 5 pin bowling, contract and duplicate bridge, cribbage, pickleball, poetry and short story writing, to scrabble, bocce, bank shuffleboard, 8 ball, track and field and predicted time walk, bocce ball and other events.  Your $10 membership covers the period of April 1, 2017 to March 31, 2018. You may buy your membership at one of the registration locations listed below.  The following are the Membership Registration Dates for the District Games that will be held in May/June.  If you are 55+ and would like to participate in our spring games activities, registration forms are available at the time of registration.

As well as all the excitement with the respective Games, other events were taking place as well.

Bocce Ball

Bocce ball starts Friday, May 05, 2017 at 1 p.m. at Kiwanis Park, 3400 Regina Avenue and continues each Friday at the same time until July 28, with one exception—there is no game on June 30.  The district games tournament will be June 16 at 1 p.m.   Participants must have a SSFA membership.  Bocce Ball is a good game to get out in the sunshine and enjoy some exercise at the same time.  Instruction is always available.
