NOTICE TO THE COMMUNITY

Crestwood Community Notice

Crestwood Community President Message:

Crestwood Community Board was made aware that Crestwood School was considering removing the basketball nets over the summer due to incessant criminal behavior at the courts after school hours.

Crestwood Community League has no jurisdiction over schoolboard decisions. However, in order to provide an alternative location for the kids to continue playing basketball over the summer we offered to delay the removal of the basketball nets until August. (We are at the beginning of our Phase III Redevelopment).

We are just as disappointed as everyone else that this decision needed to be made and that the behavior of a few kids have ruined it for the majority.

Come on down to Crestwood park at 3:00pm on July 1st to meet your Member of Parliament and enjoy some ice-cream!

YOUTHWRITE DAYCAMPS express yourself

YouthWrite 2021

YouthWrite® Society Canada.  YouthWrite is a non-profit organization that runs camps for kids that are centered on writing, creating, art, and self-expression.

This year, we are one of the very few groups running live, in-person day camps for youths in Alberta, with two of our camps running in Edmonton’s River Valley, two camps running at Kamp Kiwanis near Bragg Creek, just outside Calgary, and one camp running online via Zoom.

With the rising numbers of mental health issues among youths and students amid this pandemic, we are trying to reach as many youths, community leagues, students, teachers, and parents as possible to support the #codepink movement and the mental health of young Albertans.

Crestwood Community Garden

Crestwood Community Garden

The Community League has been allotted 10 garden boxes filled with soil.
This initiative is to increase Edmontonians’ access to fresh food and to provide opportunities for safe activities that promote community involvement, recreation, and wellness. The temporary gardens consist of raised beds designed for community food production, and help to reduce barriers in increasing local food growing spaces.

Apply today for a garden plot, if demand is high we will do a lottery draw. Deadline to apply is June 6, 2021.

SOCCER registration & COVID

I’m sure you have seen COVID  numbers increasing over  the past month, culminating in record numbers for the entire pandemic in Alberta today.

The government of Alberta increased public health restrictions today.

While the newest public health restrictions still allow for the proposed 8:2 player to coach ratio , things are trending in the wrong direction. What this means for Crestwood soccer is there are a number of coaches who are not comfortable coaching this year. I am certain they will reach out to you individually to let you know their personal decisions.

Please know that we respect your individual decisions on whether you keep  your child enrolled or choose to withdraw. If  you are comfortable keeping your child enrolled in soccer we are confident that the league will find another team to place them on. If you wish to withdraw and have paid your fees already, you can email the league to request a refund. The website says; if you are a paid registered player, you have the option to request a refund, less a $10 admin fee. A refund  request must be submitted by May 16, 2021 to  accounts@ewzsa.com

Refunds less fixed costs after this date will be  issued if EMSA has cancelled the season only.

If you have registered but not paid, the zone will be sending an email by May 15 with updated information. if you choose to  participate, payment will be need  to be completed by May 19 2021.

Further details to follow.

The portal is currently closed for online  payment. Please reach out to  president@cclboard.ca if you have any questions.
