The Cathedral Area Community Association is dedicated to making the Cathedral Area a vibrant neighbourhood with a hometown feel and a rich sense of community. We offer a variety of classes for all ages and interests. Those participating in our programs are asked to have a valid community association membership. If you don’t have a community association, or your community association doesn’t sell memberships, our memberships cost $5 per family for 12 consecutive months. Please visit our website or Facebook page for more information or call or email the office directly.

Learn to Skate. Are you new to the ice? Or have some experience skating but want to expand your skills? Come join the Cathedral Learn to Skate program where fundamental skill development is at the core in a fun, safe, and welcoming environment. Built around three learning outcomes of balance, control, and agility, this 5 week program will ensure success in developing well-rounded skill development needed to take part in any ice sport or to skate recreationally. No skating experience is required, previous skating experience is welcomed! Skates and helmet rentals are available upon request. Ages 5-12 on Saturday’s from 11:00-11:45am and an adult class (16+) on Thursday’s from 7:15-8:00pm. Limited spots available. Hockey helmet required.

Parent & Baby Group. Bring your baby to an informal group setting & hang out with other parents with babies. Have a new parent/baby related question and need a group of peers to offer an opinion? Or just need to talk with other parents that get what you’re going through? This is the place for you!

Tai Chi: Yang Style. Tai Chi Chuan is a martial art incorporating various forms for self-defence, Qi Gong, weapons, and push hands. In this class we will be focusing on learning the Yang style 24 form as a martial art as well as promotion of health. The class will also include Qi Gong sets with a focus on health through breathing and movement. The class will be led by Siheng Wybo Ottenbreit-Born who has studied Tai Chi under Sifu Eric James for over 10 years.
