The City of Lacombe Recreation Services offers a Youth Recreation Hockey Program, intended for those children interested in playing non-competitive, no contact shinny with a soft sponge puck, and who are not registered in another minor sport (e.g. ringette or ice hockey). Space is limited to 25 participants per session.
Teams are established every game night to ensure that the skill levels are balanced. Each group will have 1.25 hours of ice time weekly during their session.
Sessions run one night per week in the fall from October to December and the winter from January to March. A list of dates will be available with registration.
- Friday Session - Group 'A' (10-13 years)
- 8:30 - 9:45 pm (October 12, 2018 to December 7, 2018 & January 11, 2019 to March 1, 2019)
- Saturday Session - Group 'B' (6-9 years)
- 7:45 - 9:00 pm (October 13, 2018 to December 8, 2018 & January 12, 2019 to March 2, 2019)
Minimum equipment requirements include a CSA approved helmet with face cage, a hockey stick, hockey gloves and hockey skates. Full gear is not required, but accepted if children prefer.
Volunteers are welcome and needed to assist with running this program. Parents are encouraged to get involved by assisting on or off the ice. The registration form has a spot to check off if you are interested in assisting with the program.
