October 11, 2022 - Recreation Hockey Update

We would like to welcome all of our Recreation Hockey participants and parents back to the rink starting this weekend. Recreation Hockey will commence with ice times for U11 through to U18 throughout the next week.  Times and groups will be communicated by Thursday October 13th, so please stay tuned for more information. Balancing will start for Recreation Hockey starting Saturday October 15th. Most of the try-outs will be completed by this time and this will give us time to balance teams. Please stay tuned for more information regarding balancing in the coming week.
