Mini U Spring Programming
Mini U Multi-Sport
Welcome to the Mini U Multi-Sport program! This program aims to get kids active and more engaged in physical activity. Children will be instructed on the foundational skills related to the sport of the week before applying those new skills through some fun games and activities. Sports offered in the program will include basketball, volleyball, soccer, dance, badminton, and more!
The program is open to children of all skill levels. This non-competitive program emphasizes providing an encouraging, safe, and fun environment for kids to try out different sports and get active. The skills and drills explored in this program will be at a beginner/base level and help lay the foundation for your child to explore these sports more independently.
The recommended age for this program is 8-12 years old.
Mini University Birthday Parties
We offer Birthday Parties from September to June when we aren’t running Summer Camps in July & August!
Mini University is excited to offer your family a memorable birthday party experience! Parties are hosted in Kinesiology on Saturdays and Sundays between 11:30 am-1:30 pm and 2:30-4:30 pm. We recommend booking your party 6-8 weeks in advance, and we will contact you within 2-4 business days.
Each party is 2 hours long: 90 minutes will be for activities and 30 minutes for food, cake and presents. You can bring your food; however, please get a cooler if you want to keep food cold. Our Birthday Party Hosts will decorate the room for you, so you don’t have to! Everyone will receive a free parking pass for the party, and directions to all locations will be provided.
Please aim to invite a maximum of 12 kids to the party. Our activities are best suited for kids around 7-10 years old.
Choose from two party themes:
The cost for the party is $225 and includes:
- Adult Supervision and facilitation by our two Birthday Party Hosts so parents have the option to attend or not.
- Generic decorations our staff set up 90 minutes before the party begins. You can bring additional decorations 15 minutes before the party starts.
- A parking pass and map for everyone for the duration of the party that you will receive by email when you register. Everyone will meet at the same meeting location and then be brought to the room together.
- For an additional $25, we can provide disposable food ware including plates, cutlery, cups and tablecloths. Please indicate this on the Birthday Party Request Form.
