All our fund raising goes directly to get kids on the ice this winter by subsidizing affordable skating lessons and children’s hockey and providing free skate passes to children in the area. Friends of the Keremeos Skating Rink is a registered charity and can provide income tax receipts for donations.
It looks like this will be another good season for skating. A big donation by Sport Chek has provided many new skates that will be available for rental, as well as child and youth sized hockey protective equipment that can be borrowed for use during mites hockey and 9 – 13 year old hockey programs.
“Sticks and Pucks” hockey for 9-13 year olds is an adult supervised, drop-in program with the emphasis on fun. Players of all skill levels are encouraged to come and we welcome older teens and adults who can share their skills as volunteer coaches even if it is just for one drop in session. If you would like to participate as a player or coach, please contact Donna at 499-5654
For other rink information and skating lessons contact the recreation centre at 499-2400.
