Lots of new hockey programs starting in the Arena this month! The Little Gretzky’s Hockey program is starting Tuesday, November 22 from 11:00-11:45am in the Rossland Arena. Team Profilli has signed on to lead the next generation of hockey players learn the fundamentals of skating and hockey. If you have a preschooler in the house, who would like to learn to skate and play hockey, register them for the Little Gretzky’s program!

The Co-Ed Youth Hockey program is for preteens and teens who would like to get out on the ice with friends and play some hockey! This ice time is on Tuesdays from 3:00-4:00pm. Drop in will be welcome only if the program has 10
registered for the session. If your young person has “nothing to do” on Tuesdays, consider registering them for this fun, friendly hockey program. The Profilli team will be teaching Youth the fundamentals of hockey – including skills, drills and a game of scrimmage at the end of each session. Players will require the majority of hockey equipment – helmet and full face mask, neck guard, elbow pads and hockey stick are required. Shin guards, hockey gloves and a cup are recommended.

The Girls Only REC Hockey program is for girls ages 5-10 years. If your daughter has expressed an interest in playing hockey and has been scared away from our Co-Ed program, this is a great opportunity to get her out on the ice and learn the fundamentals. This ice time is Tuesdays, from 4:15-5:15pm and led by the Profilli team – a combination of parents, grandparents and hockey enthusiasts. This is a great opportunity for the young girls in our  community. For the big girls, we have an ice time set aside on Fridays, from 3:30-4:45pm for Teen girls and Women who would like to get out on the ice and have some fun. Full hockey equipment is encouraged, but a minimum of a full face hockey helmet, elbow pads, neck guard and hockey stick are required.

The next Folk Dancing class is on Wednesday, November 9 at 7:00pm in the Miners’ Hall. This is a fun combination of English Country and American Contra dancing. No complicated steps are required – just a sense of rhythm and humour! Newcomers are welcome – come as you are or bring a friend!

Senior’s Duffer Hockey is off to a great start! If you enjoy playing hockey and have Tuesday mornings available, come out to the Rossland Arena for a fun game of ice hockey. This is an ice time set aside for players who are 50+ with varying skills. Players are expected to play the game of hockey in the spirit of fellowship and sportsmanship. All abilities are encouraged and welcome! Play time is from 9:30 to 10:45am on Tuesdays at the Rossland Arena.

If you’re new to Rossland, enter the building from 2nd Ave, where you’ll find the change rooms and the washroom, immediately to your right.

The release of All I Can at the Miners’ Hall on November 4 is sure to get the ski season started! The Sherpas (sherpascinema.com) are proud to present All.I.Can: a two-year feature film project that fuses their passions for riding
and exploring the mountains with their potential to help the environment. The film strives to unite global mountain culture and bind winter sports enthusiasts together as the leaders of a revolution. Multi-award winning Directors Dave
Mossop and Eric Crosland journey to Chile, Morocco, Alaska, BC and beyond with riders Kye Petersen, Mark Abma, Eric Hjorleifson, JP Auclair, James Heim, Chris Rubens, Mike Douglas, Dana Flahr, Rory Bushfield, Ian McIntosh,

The next Kids Wheel Throwing and Mask Making class starts Monday November 21, but the Instructor has increased the number of classes from four classes, to six classes. If you have a child who enjoys pottery and in particular using the wheel, consider registering them for this great class.

Public skating at the Arena is on Wednesdays from 6:30-7:45pm, Fridays from 5:00-6:30pm, Sundays from 2:30-4:00pm and then again from 6:00-7:30pm. The Sunday 2:30pm skate sometimes cancels as a result of Minor Hockey
