Original Christmas gifts

Gifts that move – children
  • The Sportheque and its many affiliated centers across Quebec offers squash courses for children aged 7 to 11 years old: $99 for 12 weeks.

  • Martial arts can be offered as it pleases both children and parents. You can find courses in different disciplines in most cities, and the prices vary from $85 to $130.

  • What about ski? You must first make sure that all members of the family like this sport. You can usually buy tickets by the day, multi-days or family packages in most ski centers.

  • If your friends and family don’t like ski or any other winter sport, swimming or gymnastic can be an option. Check your local sports center to find out what activities are available.
