COVID-19 UPDATES
 
December 22, 2020
With yesterday’s provincial announcement, the Sports Centre will be closed from December 24th through January 23rd. Any ice times that were scheduled for that time period have been canceled.
 
Our staff will be taking a well-deserved break for the holidays, and will return to working remotely in January, as we prepare to reopen and welcome you all back to the ice! Any inquiries or booking requests can be sent to gametime@westernfairdistrict.com , and will be received and replied to in the new year.
 
From all of us at the Sports Centre, have a safe and happy holiday!

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!
