What’s Happening at WIRAC over April 2019

April is that month of the year where we get to feel that Winter is Coming whilst still enjoy the odd and occasional warm day. It will be interesting to see what the month brings.

Term 1 finishes on Fri 5 April and unfortunately WIRAC will not be hosting any school holiday activities as we just don’t seem to get the numbers at this time of the year. However we are offering a FREE Teen Gym & Swim program for Years 10-12 weekdays from 9-3pm so come in and chat to us if that might work for your teenagers!

The Easter Break is on from Friday 19 April to Monday 22 April and the Centre is closed for the Friday, Saturday & Sunday are normal hours whilst the Monday is on public holiday hours (Autumn/Winter means 9-1pm). The exception is Anzac Day which takes place on Thursday 25 April and WIRAC will be open from 12-4pm.

With the start of Term 2 on Tue 23 April, the Centre will move to some modified pool hours on Tue/Wed/Thu where it will be closed from 12noon-3pm. This is due to the low numbers the Centre gets at this time over Autumn and Winter so please plan your swims around these changes.

We will also be closing the Centre and the Pool at 7pm weeknights (Fridays at 6pm), so we have made some minor changes to the length of group fitness classes over this time to minimize the inconvenience. Based on customer feedback we have added a new Yoga class with Ellie on Monday’s so make sure you come along and support it. Like any business, if our programs and services are not being utilized and supported by our members and users, we have no option but to reconsider that program or service.

Our new special program for youth aged 16-25 commences on the week of the 23 April. Called MYnd Pump, it is a unique YMCA program to help those with stress, anxiety or low moods and is based around physical activity. For more information go here. There will be a special information session on MYnd Pump at WIRAC on Tue 16th April at 12 noon so come along if you want more information.

Our Heat Pump Project is moving along nicely and by April our new Pool Heat Pumps will be working for both the Hydro area and the Main Pools. The air handling works for these areas will still be a month or two away from completion. The gym heating and air conditioning work should also be completed early in April.

PS: Our March offer for new members is a 7 month membership (All-in-one), Gym or Aquatic and this has been so popular during the month, that we will extend this offer until Sunday 14 April.

For more information on any of these events or any of our activities, please call the Centre on 4661 7955 or find us on Facebook here. WIRAC is the Southern Downs one-stop destination for family fitness, sports activities and quality aquatic education!
