    Indoor Pool Schedule

    Commonwealth Pool was chosen last year when the Millwoods Pool was closed for renovations (shortly after we were booked into it) and we went to Millwoods because Bonnie Doon Pool was closed for an extended period of time (a pool we have used for a few decades) so our record is 3 for 3 in shutting down pools we book into. We will stay with this facility unless the membership wish to move to another pool.

    Show your new Community League Family Membership Card when you visit any pool in summer or winter.

    Sport Fields in Argyll

    The sun is shining and the smell of fresh-cut grass is in the air. Outdoor sports season is here again.

    The City of Edmonton maintains over 1,600 ball diamonds, soccer pitches and multi-use fields. Field users are asked to help us keep our fields in shape all season long by adhering to a few simple rules:

    Fields are closed periodically for maintenance, rest and rejuvenation. These short closures help prevent longer, costly closures, and extend the life of the field. Visit edmonton.ca/sportsfields and check "€œNotifications" to confirm a field is open before heading out. You can also sign up to receive email or RSS closure notifications from this web page.

    Have fun out there.

    Argyll Soccer Fun

    The program is operated by local parent volunteers

    A parent-run weekly soccer night for 3 – 6 year-olds. Come encourage your kids to get moving in a fun, casual environment and meet other local families.

    When: Thursday evenings, 6:00 -7:00 PM, weather permitting.
    Where: North side of the Argyll Community Hall (grass between the hall & velodrome parking lot)
    What to bring: A soccer ball (if you have one) and running shoes for your child.

    We are fortunate to have several parents with training in physical literacy who will be guiding the kids. The goal is to build confidence and improve physical movement.
