Hit the ice to wrap up your summer

New ice at the Jim Ciccone Civic Centre is not just an indication that a new Rampage season is on the way, and while members of the North Coast's CIHL team have started their pre season training plans, next week Prince Rupert's youth will be taking to the ice as the City's Recreation Department offers up a pair of Stick and Puck sessions.

The program which runs twice a day from Monday August 24 to Friday the 28th is divided into two sections, with the morning session from 9 to 10:30, designed for youngsters ages 7 to 9, who can pick up some skill development in a fun environment.

In the afternoon the 10 to 13 year olds take to the ice where they can shake off the rust of an off season and pick up some tips on skating, shooting and puck handling skills.

The afternoon sessions run from 1 to 2:30 PM

Goalies are welcome at either level, registration for either the morning or afternoon program costs 35 dollars. Registration is underway now, you can contact the Recreation Centre at 250-624-6707 should you have any questions.

You can learn more about the Stick and Puck sessions from the Recreation Department's Facebook page.

The new ice at the Jim and skills sessions for next week are just another reminder that the Minor Hockey Season is about to start up on the North Coast, you can find more information about the Prince Rupert Minor Hockey Association from our archive page here.
