There are several great and awesome teachers around Saskatoon who are offering programs for our kids to excel at and build their confidence. What kinds of after school programs do you have your children attending? Including interests and price, what programs are your kids enrolled in that are really great? There are several options available, here is an unbiased list of several places around Saskatoon. Feel free to add your favorite place where you are teaching at, or give a review of one of the places that are listed.

1. Sports

There are so many places, including schools that offer any kind of sport that may interest your child. I usually list links for the places that I find, but there are so many that you will have to choose a sport and find a place either close to home or friendly on the pocket-book. Also remember that Canada has a $500 grant write off for children’s fitness, so keep those receipts! ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Soccer
  • Tennis
  • Golf
  • Hockey
  • Bowling
  • Skating
  • Skating
  • Badminton

2. University of Saskatchewan

U of S has a list of great summer camps. They programs are varied and look interesting, each in their own way. Kids get bored during summer holidays and bored kids find their own mischief, why not have their minds grow in positive ways?

3. Art Classes

If you have kids that love making and creating things, they will love learning how to make and create even cooler things.

There could be a host of more schools in Saskatoon, but these are the two that I found the most information on for kids.

4. Martial Art Classes

Martial arts are great because it teaches discipline and self-control. If you have kids that you are trying to teach these skills to, with little success, enrolling them in some of these classes might benefit them as well as you, greatly. These also qualify for the $500 Canadian Active kids grant.

5. YMCA

More of a drop in style list of programs, but the YMCA has a great selection of choices and unique things to learn (baton twirling being on the list). If you are looking for a reason to work out (who isn’t), the programs offered here might be a great incentive for everyone.

6. City of Saskatoon

I tried to get the link for the program listings, to give you a better overview but the link is not working. You may have to call them to get a list of programs or register by phone. I am sure they will have a great list of programs for your kids and more than likely reasonably priced. Worth looking into.

7. Dance Programs

The dance programs offered are quite varied, based on the teachers, locations, prices and specialty. I have my girls going to La Danse and they have great things to say about their programs and teachers.

8. Gymnastics

Great way for your children to burn some of their energy and learn balance and coordination as well.

9. Your Child‘s School

Schools host programs as well. The two major perks are that your child will know most, if not all the kids there and they are usually less expensive than other organized activities.

I know there are several other programs and activities in Saskatoon, please feel free to list them. Extracurricular programs are so important for our children’s social, intellectual and emotional development. Please give reviews of places if you can.

  1. Please add Kopperud taekwondo to your martial arts list. My kids go there and the instructors are friendly and helpful. They have a variety of times and also family classes.
