Please check with the summer program coordinators in June of each year to get contact numbers for sport leaders.
Stephenville Minor Soccer
The emphasis of the minor soccer program is to teach ball skills such as kicking and passing in addition to organizing small group games and competitions. As the children move up in categories, the program is more geared towards team playing, skill development and positioning. The program is divided into categories up to 17 years of age with practices running Monday through Thursday from June through to September. There are soccer pitches located at the Stephenville Middle and High Schools, the overpass and the Mayfield Soccer Pitch on Minnesota Drive.

Whaleback Nordic Ski Club
Whaleback Nordic embarked on its humble beginnings in 1968. Since that time we have hosted the following prestigious events from regional, provincial and national competitions. The club offers a Jackrabbit Program, instruction for beginners and night skiing to an enthusiastic membership of 300 plus. The chalet maybe humble but warm and hospitable and is presently staffed by volunteers and paid staff.
The trails at Whaleback Nordic are undulating with several sections that can be classed as moderately taxing. Whaleback usually gets an abundant annual snowfall. You can expect to find new snow conditions with temperatures between -2 to -8 C; unfortunately these ideal temperatures cannot be guaranteed.
There are also dedicated trails to the snow walkers. Several kilometres have been stomped for this popular sport!
