  •  20 min. presentation on healthy aging & healthy communities by Dr. Verena Menec
  •  Coffee, tea & refreshments!

People are living longer than ever and, for the first time  in history, there are now more older adults in Canada than  children. How can people stay as healthy as possible for as   long as possible? And how can we make communities more  age-friendly to that people can stay healthy?

Verena Menec, PhD —Professor, Department of  Community Health Sciences at the University of Manitoba. Her research focuses on factors related to healthy aging,  and how to make communities more age-friendly.

Winnipeg, MB – KidSport Winnipeg and Desiree Scott, 2016 & 2012 Olympic Bronze Medalist, Pro Soccer Player with The Utah Royals and member of the Canadian Women’s National Team and Canada West Hall of Fame announced the fourth annual KidSport soccer camp taking place on Saturday November 23 and Sunday November 24, 2019 at the Garden City Community Center.

“We have taken a little break but I’m so excited that we are back for the 4th camp,” said Scott. “My camps for KidSport have always been an important event for me and one I really enjoy putting on, so I’m pumped we are able to bring it back this year! As always, I want all the participants who come out to enjoy themselves while getting to experience a fun day of soccer specific drills and hopefully gaining a little more motivation to go after their goals. Teaming up with KidSport Winnipeg and giving back is so very important to me and I look forward to being back on the pitch with the kids doing what we love!”

Desiree Scott

Scott, along with some of Manitoba’s top players and coaches will take kids through soccer specific speed and agility training, fundamental drills and ball familiarity exercises. Along with the technical side of the game, the camp is also about having as much fun as possible while learning other important skills such as teamwork, leadership, dedication, self-confidence and how hard work pays off.

The camp is for girls aged 8-18 years old. Registration is open to the public. Community-sponsored girls who have been funded by KidSport Winnipeg to play soccer in 2019 will also be in attendance. “Desiree Scott is a true, homegrown Winnipeg soccer super-star. As a KidSport kid herself as a youngster, Desiree understands better than most, the role KidSport plays in helping to get kids off the sidelines and into the game,” said Rick McGregor, KidSport Winnipeg chair. “With her soccer camp, she pays it forward, showing young girls who attend her camp, the hard work, dedication, perseverance and teamwork required to succeed in both sports and life. Desiree is a true inspiration to Winnipeg’s youth and her dedication and desire to give back to the community, with her infectious personality and energy at her camp inspires a new generation of future stars. KidSport Winnipeg is extremely proud to have both Desiree and the Sexton Group on our team!”

It feels odd to be writing this in October when we are all settled into our fall and nearly winter routines.

A personal accident kept us away from getting this done earlier, but we do not want the calendar to flip to 2020 without letting you know about the success of the 2019 Whyte Ridge Mini Soccer season.

2019 Whyte Ridge Mini Soccer saw over 300 players aged 3 to 8 years old playing soccer in Scurfield Park and Don Smith Park in May and June.  They were coached by 76 volunteer family members and friends who in turn were led by 4 committed conveners.

We are so thankful for all of the people who gave their time and energy so our children can have the experience of playing soccer once or twice a week.

A special thank you goes to all coaches and parents who jumped in to help from the sidelines. Mini soccer would not exist without your dedication. We smile when thinking about how engaged you are with your players.

Last fall – I biked and walked through Scurfield park and worked with the Parks department to conduct an assessment. I’ve been to Scurfield park many times, as I used to live on Bessboro many years ago. I must say, I don’t think any upgrades have occurred in the park for a few decades!  This spring I approved the hiring of a consultant to do an assessment on the conditions and provide recommendations to upgrade the:

  • Pathways
  • Retaining walls
  • Lighting
  • Bench locations

Last year some pathway work was done, this year more is occurring just off Columbia Drive.  The retaining walls are collapsing, the asphalt is in very poor condition, and the light poles are leaning terribly. The front entrance ‘Whyte Ridge’ sign also needs upgrading. The consultant will have a report ready shortly proposing ideas / which pathways may be asphalt or gravel, where additional benches can go, and more.  I will be presenting this report at the Whyte Ridge Community Center’s fall board meeting (September 9th ) and will advertise so people can provide additional input.

I’ve worked on upgrading many parks in the south end of Winnipeg over the years (Kings Park, Kirkbridge Park, La Barriere Park, and others). I am focusing the ward Park’s budget now on Scurfield Park and look forward to some major work to start next spring!  If you have any questions or comments, please email me jlukes@winnipeg.ca

Kind regards,
