Get­ting in shape in Pot­ton

Sherbrooke Record - - LOCAL NEWS - The Scoop Mable Hast­ings

The new Pot­ton in Shape pro­gram of­fered through the Mu­nic­i­pal­ity of Pot­ton got off to a great start this past Satur­day, Oc­to­ber 27 with 23 par­tic­i­pants of all ages join­ing in on the fun. The Satur­day morn­ing pro­gram is held at the Man­sonville El­e­men­tary School from 9:30-10:30 a.m. and the fol­low­ing pro­grams are be­ing of­fered weekly, free of charge, through to De­cem­ber 1st.

Tiny Tots with Hiro Gagnon, Open Gym with Aleeyah Cervinka and Vic­tor Gagnon, Yoga with Marie Garon, Novem­ber 17th, Zumba with Geneviève Quintin, Novem­ber 3rd and Novem­ber 24th, Pi­lates with Ki­ne­si­ol­o­gist, Monique Gil­bert Novem­ber 10th and De­cem­ber 1st.

The pro­gram is meant to be flex­i­ble, and al­though it is hoped that ci­ti­zens par­tic­i­pate as much as pos­si­ble, peo­ple do not need to com­mit to the en­tire 6 weeks.

The Open Gym pro­gram will ro­tate ac­tiv­i­ties each week. Floor hockey 2 weeks, Bas­ket­ball 2 weeks and Ob­sta­cle Cour­ses 2 weeks.

Par­ents can par­tic­i­pate in ac­tiv­i­ties at the same time as their children, giv­ing them a well-needed break.

This pro­gram was cre­ated by the Pot­ton Leisure Com­mit­tee and is of­fered FREE of charge! The Goal is to ex­pose lo­cal Pot­toneers of all ages to lo­cal pro­grams that are al­ready in place and to con­tinue to sup­port our ci­ti­zens on their mis­sion to adopt an ac­tive and healthy life­style. Mem­bers / Mu­nic­i­pal Leisure Com­mit­tee in­clude:

Bruno Coté (Pres­i­dent) Michael Laplume (Coun­cil­lor) Monique Gil­bert (Se­niors Ser­vices / CABMN)

Cather­ine Ducharme (Ci­ti­zen) Mon­ica St. Onge (Ci­ti­zen)

Tr­ish Wood (Mu­nic­i­pal­ity) There are cur­rently over 20 dif­fer­ent leisure & sport pro­grams of­fered by lo­cal ci­ti­zens and or­gan­i­sa­tions in the Town­ship of Pot­ton. To see all pro­gram de­tails, visit http://pot­ton.ca/en/recre­ation-and-cul­ture/ac­tiv­i­ties/

The Mu­nic­i­pal­ity of Pot­ton wishes to pro­mote recre­ational ac­tiv­i­ties for young peo­ple by of­fer­ing sports pro­grams at a rea­son­able cost for its res­i­dents; it will there­fore pro­vide fi­nan­cial as­sis­tance to par­ents who en­roll their children in higher-level pro­grams that are of­fered out­side of the Town­ship of Pot­ton. This as­sis­tance is pro­vided by means of a re­im­burse­ment re­quested by the par­ents. Up to $200 per child per year could be re­im­bursed. De­tails: http://pot­ton.ca/en/recre­ation-and-cul­ture/ac­tiv­i­ties/ac­tiv­i­ties-for-children/

There are a va­ri­ety of amaz­ing in­struc­tors and an­i­ma­tors de­liv­er­ing high­qual­ity pro­grams in Pot­ton. The Leisure Com­mit­tee would like to in­tro­duce these in­struc­tors to those who are not yet par­tic­i­pat­ing.

The key is get peo­ple from the com­mu­nity to take part in the pro­grams be­ing of­fered to as­sure that they con­tinue. Pot­ton is lucky to have lo­cal in­struc­tors who can of­fer these pro­grams and par­tic­i­pa­tion is the best way to show in­ter­est and sup­port.

Satur­day's par­tic­i­pants were thrilled with the con­cept and en­joyed the flex­i­bil­ity and qual­ity of the in­struc­tion. Ad­di­tional in­ter­est has been ex­pressed so num­bers are ex­pected to grow each week.
