12-12-18 Outdoor rinks are open for the season today!
Important!! Hockey is not allowed on the free skate area of the outdoor rinks that have hockey rinks, also free skating is not allowed on the hockey rink area. These are safety issues and skater cooperation is required.
It is highly recommended that you get your child ready for outdoor practice at home due to limited space in the warming houses. Prairie Knoll and Hawk Ridge especially have a VERY small warming house! Please make sure to dress your child for the weather! Adding a "skull cap" (tighter fitting hat under the helmet), face mask, Under Armour or long underwear and gloves inside of the hockey gloves will help to keep your child warm. If the weather is too cold or the ice is in poor condition, your practice will be canceled at the discretion of your coach or the association. Typically we recommend that practice be canceled if the temperature is below 0 degrees or if the wind chill is -10 degrees. (Updated 1-12-15)
Enjoy!! Outdoor hockey is a ton of fun and the kids love it . . . back to the basics of old-school hockey!

o Wind-chill is below -10 degrees or more, or temperature below 0.
