MAY 13, 2021

With the extension of the provincial Stay-at-Home order, the Sports Centre will remain closed through June 2nd.

Summer Leagues Update

Based on the extended stay-at-home order, we have decided to cancel our Summer Leagues this season, and will not be hosting our 2021 Adult and Youth Summer Leagues. We are disappointed to do this for another season, though as we near June and are faced with ongoing restrictions, it is simply not safe or ideal for us to offer our league programming at this time.

We are focusing our efforts on reopening the facility in a safe and efficient way, look forward to welcoming everyone back when it is safe to do so.

 
MARCH 29, 2021

    •  With dressing rooms being closed there will be 30 minutes between each rental time so that the group leaving the ice can get undressed and depart, staff sanitize the area and the next group can arrive.

  •  No games or scrimmages are permitted – practice/instruction only

ADULT WINTER LEAGUE UPDATE

December 9, 2020

We have made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020-21 Adult Winter League season. The current provincial restrictions and the effect on our operation do not present a good opportunity to offer a quality league experience in the new year. We hope to improvements to our current environment which will allow for us to offer a Summer League season beginning in the spring which will more closely resemble our usual league experience. Please stay tuned for updates!

Thank you for your understanding and patience!
