The RDC Queens Cross Country Running Team is at the CCAA National Championship in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario from November 10th – 12th.
The Sault College Cougars are hosting the event, while as a team, the Queens are ranked first in the Canadian Collegiate Athletic Association.
Teams arrive on November 10th to register and have team photos taken while Friday consists of an option to practice and coaches meetings.
Saturday, the Women’s 5 km National Championship begins at 10:00am Mountain time and in the evening, student-athletes and coaches will attend the CCAA Championship Banquet.
RDC Athletics officials say three of the seven student-athletes who were named to the ACAC All-Conference Women’s Team attend Red Deer College. They are Jordanna Cota, Amy Severtson and
Kari Elliott, the 2016-2017 ACAC Cross-Country Running Coach of the Year, will lead the Women’s team and they have momentum heading into the National Championship after placing first at the ACAC Cross-Country Running Championship in Grande Prairie on October 29th.

Access to Dawe Centre pool and community centre affected by expansion project – Details
Limited access to G.H. Dawe Community Centre this summer due to construction
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.
