In 1961, three clubs, the Glenora Skating and Tennis Club, the Braemar Badminton Club, and the Royal Curling Club, joined together to become the Royal Glenora Club. The Club is home to a newly renovated arena, an indoor glass enclosed pool that features a retractable roof, along with multiple tennis, squash and badminton courts. The Club is world renowned in Figure Skating as the training facility for World Champions such as Kurt Browning, Jamie Salé and David Pelletier.
Edmonton, also known as the City of Champions, is the capital of the province of Alberta, located on the North Saskatchewan River in the central region of the province. This area offers some of the most fertile farmland on the prairies. It is the second largest city in Alberta after Calgary, with a population of 877,926 and 1,243,000 in the Greater Edmonton Area.
During my three years in Penticton, OHA was influential in my growth as a student, an athlete, and most importantly a person. Their overwhelming support made the city feel like home and the community feel like family. It was truly a first class experience, in an elite program that has prepared me for my time in university and any future endeavors."
