December 8th, 2021
Hey everyone! Can you believe it has already been 2 months since we first opened our doors at River City Sportplex!? We would like to thank everyone who has participated in our public skate sessions or one of our ice skating and hockey programs. The positive feedback and encouraging words we have received have been overwhelming and we are all so happy to be able to provide the ice rink and ice skating to our amazing community! We’d like to give a huge thank you to our staff who have been working hard every day to help make these first 2 months such a huge success.
In our first two months, we have had over 3,000 skaters come out to our public skate sessions, sharpened over 300 pairs of skates, and completed our first learn to skate and learn to play hockey sessions. Both of which were a huge success! We have 180 players in our first adult hockey season that has their championship games next week, and we had 23 amazing participants in our first Adult Hockey 101 class that is going to see new hockey players joining our leagues next season!
While we have had a great first 2 months, we are just getting started. This week our curling stones will arrive and we will be hosting our first learn to curl clinic this weekend December 11th and 12th from 6:00 pm-8:00 pm. These classes are limited to 40 participants for each day so make sure to sign up and reserve your spot! This first weekend will be FREE! Moving forward we will continue to have learn to curl classes on the weekends as we prepare to start curling leagues after the new year.
As we begin the holiday season and approach a new year, we are excited to offer a wide range of skating programs that will continue to grow moving forward. We are kicking off our second learn to skate and learn to play sessions this week, and taking registrations for winter skate camps, and our New Years 3v3 pond hockey tournament! Make sure to register early and reserve your spot! We are also very excited to be introducing girls hockey classes including a girls-only try hockey for free on December 18th from 9:15 am-10:15 am. Below are other programs and events to look forward to as we enter the holiday season and get ready to start a new year. Thank you again to our amazing community, we look forward to finishing 2021 strong! Check out our website rivercitysportplex.com for more information on programs and events!
