What’s that in the air? Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No. It’s the telltale chill that can only mean one thing: winter is coming.

If you’re the kind of person who mourns the loss of sunny days and outdoor activities, then we have something to cheer you up. 

Calgary Sport and Social Club just opened their registration for winter sports leagues, and there are 15+ different sports to choose from!

You can register for a winter league as a full team, a small group of friends, or even individually. So, whether you’re looking to bond with your coworkers, spend time with your family, or make new friends in the city, there’s a registration option for you. And you don’t have to be a pro athlete! This is a recreational club, so these winter sports leagues are meant to be about having fun and enjoying the game rather than being ultra-competitive.

  • Darts
  • Dodgeball
  • Fitness
