The Alberta Sport Development Centre – Central (ASDC-C) is pleased to announce that the ASDC-Central Male Athlete of the Month for October 2017 is Carter Pisko.

Carter Pisko, is 16 years old and a grade 10 student at Delburne Central School.  Carter has been training in gymnastics (Trampoline &Tumbling) at Exelta Gymnastics Club in Red Deer.  For the past 10 years he has travelled to Red Deer most weekdays and currently trains 20hrs/week.  He competes at a National Level for Trampoline and Double Mini Trampoline (DMT).

Carter attended his first Canadian National Championships for T&T this summer and captured his first National crown when he overcame an knee injury that caused him to drop his second event, and was able to win the DMT Level 5 (Novice) 16 and under – GOLD medal!

In addition to Nationals this past season, Carter was the 2017 Provincial Champion in DMT L5 16U and Bronze medalist in Trampoline L5 16U.  Previously, Carter was also Western Canadian Double Mini Champion in 2012 and 2013, along with being named Most Dedicated Athlete 2011-12 and 2015-16 and Male T&T Athlete of the Year 2012-13 and 2013-14 at Exelta Gymnastics.

While he trains in T&T he also continues his love of sports by playing volleyball, track and hockey.

Carter’s athletic gifts and desire to excel along with his training experiences with ASDC-Central will only see him continue to grow and develop in his gymnastics career!  ASDC-Central thanks Tom Bast Sports for celebrating the ASDC-Central Athlete of the Month recipients by the provision of commemorative apparel for each recipient.  ASDC-Central Male Athlete of the Month – Carter Pisko

Access to Dawe Centre pool and community centre affected by expansion project – Details

Published on

Limited access to G.H. Dawe Community Centre this summer due to construction

Due to construction, access to the G.H. Dawe Community Centre will be limited this summer, with a full closure planned for August.

As announced yesterday, City recreation centres are opening fully to the public as of July 1. With construction underway at the G.H. Dawe Community Centre, only limited services and areas will be available.

Here’s what you need to know:

  • Starting July 2, fitness and gym areas will open from 10 a.m. – 8 p.m., daily. In July, summer day camps that normally operate from the Dawe will operate from other facilities.
  • The pool will remain closed until September.
  • To accommodate interior heating and ventilation construction, the facility will fully close from July 26 to August 31. Some registered preschool and summer camp programming may proceed, but no rental or general admission options will be available.
  • On September 1, we anticipate the pool will be open, but some other amenities, like the gym, may not be available. More information will be provided as construction progresses.
  • Playing surfaces in the arena will not be available until construction is complete, which is expected to be early 2023.

We are currently offering a discounted monthly Value Pass for $27 for adults ($24.50 for seniors; $21.90 for students; $19.30 for youth; $14.20 for children, and $60.50 for a family. It provides unlimited access to all facilities. As of August the Value Pass will only provide access to the Recreation Centre and Michener Aquatic Centre; however, access to the Dawe will be included in the Value pass until the pool, gym and fitness areas are open.

About the G.H. Dawe Community Centre Project

Work is underway now on the G.H. Dawe Community Centre Project and some exciting changes are in store. We expect to welcome visitors to the transformed space in early 2023. Here’s just some of what you can expect:

  • Two NHL standard playing surfaces
  • Expanded fitness areas, including a running track
  • Outdoor spray park with washroom facilities
  • Improved accessibility
  • Additional north entrance + site access from 67 Street
  • Additional parking

During construction, there will be some changes and impacts to existing amenities and programs, and we’ll do you best to share this information in advance. Thanks for your patience as we complete this work.
