My Gym Mobile Classes coming to Whyte Ridge CC

After lots of interest was expressed by parents of young children at the Winter Carnival, My Gym is bringing their Mobile class to Whyte Ridge Community Centre on Sunday mornings starting in April!!!  The classes offered will be:

Younger Ages Class (age 6 weeks to 5 years)

Emphasis is on teamwork, sharing, taking turns, working both together and independently, and building their relationship. Children gain confidence, improve learning skills, and develop their motor skills. Relays, puppets, gymnastics, games, and special rides are just a few of the activities performed in classes.

Ninja Class (age 4 to 10 years)

My Gym Ninja Training classes are designed to be fun and challenging while remaining safe and non-competitive. Classes will focus on developing strength, stamina, and agility in relays, conditioning exercises, games, team-building and, of course, obstacle courses that change every week. Kids will be challenged mentally and physically, while instilling a mindset of overcoming adversity both inside and outside of the gym!

Class Dates:  Sundays April 28 – June 23

Class Times:

  • Younger Ages:  9:00 – 9:40 am
  • Ninja:  9:45 – 10:25 am

A New Look

Something is new with our printed newsletter. You may have noticed that the title has changed from “The Spirit” to “The Ridge”. The idea behind the original newsletter title was conceived some 15 years ago and it has been a fixture in our community ever since. The name “The Spirit” was meant to reflect the community spirit in Whyte Ridge, but Whyte Ridge has changed a lot since then and we felt that it was time for a change too. The new title, “The Ridge” and new look to the newsletter cover is meant to reference and be inclusive of both Whyte Ridge and Linden Ridge and to reflect a stronger sense of community.

Other changes are taking place as well, such as our new board position, Director of Diversity. We welcome our new director Shahin Shooshtari to the role, with a focus on recognizing, serving and celebrating the diverse cultures in our community. On Feb 24 we held a dinner at the community centre to celebrate this increasing diversity and invite participation in community activities. Look for other events from Shahin in the future with a focus on diversity and community. Also, look for the new Whyte Ridge Fitness park coming this spring beside the basketball court. This wheelchair accessible facility is another way we are reaching out to all members of our community and providing great recreational opportunities for all.

If you want to be a part of the positive changes in our community, then we need you! For more information about volunteer opportunities and what is coming at WRCC, please contact our president Curtis Rossow at

Whyte Ridge Mini-Soccer 2019

It might be hard to tell as we hide away in hibernation, but the days are already getting longer, and spring really is coming! It’s time to start thinking about our spring time activities, including soccer!

We are looking forward to another fun season of mini soccer in Whyte Ridge! Recreational mini soccer is a great way to enjoy the May and June evenings with our children and neighbours. This year children born in the years 2011 to 2016 are welcome to play in our program.

The current plan for this year is to have all of the age groups, except U3/4, play at Whyte Ridge Elementary School. The little ones will play at Don Smith Park on Tuesdays as they have for many years. Unlike previous years, this year U5/6 will be a combined age group of children born in 2013 and 2014. This group will play on Tuesdays and Thursdays. The U7/8s, both boys and girls, will play on Mondays and Wednesdays.  You can find all the other information about mini soccer on the Whyte Ridge Community Centre Website.
