There have been many, many changes at the Youth Arena
(again!!) this summer and fall but one things remains the same…there is
nothing quite like the first time you step on the ice for the season! The
long, gliding strokes, the smell of the crisp, cold ice, and the
excitement of racing up the ice to be the first one to the puck!!
The rink opens Saturday, November 22nd!
Thanks to our many coaches and organizers who
selflessly give their time, energy and good humor to helping our young
people learn the joy of great sport! If you are interested in helping
coach hockey or with the learn-to-skate program, contact the
numbers/emails below to offer your helping hands. It is a rewarding way
to help out!

It has been a VERY busy year with the arena’s
structural work going on. The concrete floor with in-floor piping that was
poured this summer has been a real dream come true for us. The newly
insulated and redesigned office and washrooms will be the part that you
can see this winter, but you can tell the new floor is underneath the
white, white ice!! With your support, and our wonderful construction crew
over the past four years, we have come an incredible distance! Come back
to see our summer pictures.
