Celebrity Shinny Feb. 2, cheer for your side

Game on! Cheer for your side in the First Annual Sorauren Park “Celebrity Shinny Match” this Saturday, February 2 starting at 1 pm.

Two neighbourhood institutions will take on each other, as The West End Phoenix takes on the Sorauren Hosers All-Stars.

The all-volunteer Hosers have done an incredible job this week, clearing up after the storm and fighting the polar vortex (and frozen hoses) to keep the rinks flooded.

Drop by the info booth to learn what’s happening at the park and The West End Phoenix newspaper, and how you can get involved in park life and consultations for the new Wabash Community Centre. Pick up some cool WEP and Sorauren Park merch.

Note there are two skating pads at the rink, so public skating will be available at all times during shinny.

PS: Forecast calls for an almost tropical -2 deg C, just enough to keep the rink — but not spirits — frozen.

Registration starts March 7 for soccer, baseball, tennis

Get those barcodes ready… registration starts March 7 for the 2018 Sorauren Park children’s soccer and baseball/t-ball programs, kids and adults tennis, and early-year adventure day camps.

Toronto Parks, Forestry and Recreation, in partnership with the all-volunteer Sorauren Park Sports Association, runs the soccer and baseball (t-ball) leagues at the park starting every May.  The City runs the tennis programs, and also runs age 4-5 Adventure Day Camps at the Sorauren Fieldhouse.

Make sure you have your City Client number and Family number prior to registering. This web page provides all the information you need to know to register. Call a customer service representative from 8:30am to 4:30pm, Monday to Friday, at 416-338-4386 to set up your account today if you don’t already have one.

To search the FunGuide for Sorauren Park programs, type “Sorauren Avenue Park” in the location bar on this page. You’ll need each program’s barcode number to register.

Soccer and baseball/t-ball programs range from age 4 to 13. The tone is fun and friendly, with an emphasis on building sportsmanship, skills, team play and exercise. Volunteer parents serve as coaches and fundraisers (for the t-shirt uniforms and trophies), while the City provides the equipment, referees, and registration system.

Contact Sorauren Park Sports Association if you’d like to volunteer!
