Hit the ice this summer to beat the heat

Kamloops, B.C. - Need a break from the heat? Cool off this summer with public skating, Stick and Puck Programs, or a drop-in hockey session. Skating has great aerobic and cardiovascular benefits but does not have the joint impact that other activities such as running or jogging have. Skating also tones muscles, promotes weight loss, increases mental control such as alertness and is terrific for building self-esteem and confidence.

There are also a number of free public skating events this summer sponsored by Tim Hortons and the City of Kamloops. These events support families getting physically active and spending time together in a fun and positive environment.

Free Public Skating Events
June 14 - Brock Arena, 8:30 - 10 pm
July 21 - Brock Arena, 11 am - 1 pm
Aug 18 - Brock Arena, 11 am - 1 pm
