Teen Drop-in Hockey - Ages 16 - 18

With fall right around the corner the City is offering a Special Pre-Season Practice Session for Adult Drop-in Hockey on Tuesday, August 7th from 1:15 to 3:15 pm at Brock Arena.

The next free Tim Hortons family skates are: Saturday, July 21st from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm and Saturday, August 18th from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm at Brock Arena.

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.
