The Province of Manitoba announced on October 30th that the Winnipeg Metropolitan Region is being upgraded to Code Red, effective Monday, November 2, 2020 for a minimum of two weeks. The new restrictions include all recreational facilities, group sports etc suspended and all indoor and outdoor sport facilities closed. (including Sargent Park Arena).
We are working with our amazing coaches to pivot to virtual training at home during this time. Please check your emails for access to the zoom training being held during our regular practice times. These practices are open to all of our skaters at all levels.
Thank you all for doing your part and staying home. We are excited to get back to the arena when it is safe for everyone to be together again.
Welcome back! The ice at the Sargent Park Arena is not available for a few more weeks. We are working on some other training to get us started, and our first regular practice is Monday, October 26, 2020. Please check your email and our calendar for the latest updates to the schedule. Thanks for your patience.
The safety of our skaters, volunteers and families is always our highest priority and this season that safety requires a few extra precautions. Our safety steps and precautions will be adapted throughout the season based on the current situation and needs. The above link is to MSSA’s recommended best practices which is the guideline we will work from.
We appreciate everyone’s help and patience as we work out the best way to keep the season fun and safe for everyone!

Skate-A-Thon details and pledge form
2020 Long Track Season
Thank you to all of the volunteers who have worked so hard to get the Susan Auch Oval ready for skating. Our first outdoor practice of 2020 is Monday, January 6th at 6:00. We will meet at the Cindy Klassen Rec Centre. When you enter from the front doors, head to the back (north) of the building passing on the right of the registration desk. We will meet in club room #3 located on the north side of the building. On most evenings we will be sharing our dressing room with other clubs so this is a great chance to meet some of the other skaters and parents.
Remember that it is cold out so dress in layers. Skaters get very warm while skating and need to be able to remove layers as needed. Ski goggles are recommended. A thin toque or mask that you can wear under your helmet are helpful as well. Make sure your socks are dry. You might want to bring extra socks and powder to help keep your feet dry. Wet feet are cold feet. If it is too cold to be outdoors skating (or raining lol), we still have a practice, usually dryland indoors (which is a great opportunity to work on technical things). Please bring running shoes to each practice to be used for warm up and dryland.
There are a few days left to sign up for the Silver Skates meet. The link has been emailed out. All of our skaters are strongly encouraged to give this meet a try.
The ice is ready at the arena!!!

Be ready to go on the ice to help get the mats in place. Returning skaters grab a new member and show them how to arrange the mats. Parents, your help is also needed to get the mats on and off the ice.
