We opened our doors for business on Monday afternoon and have been happy to see so many new and long-time community members and visitors come to skate (and just hang out!). Already this week, we've had some youth "Learn to Play Hockey" sessions; several youth hockey practices (PYHA and the Polar Bears!); the WSU and UofI women's hockey team practices; "Old Timers" hockey; two 5th-grade classes came together for the popular, "Science on Ice" program; and of course, lots of public skating!
Saturday will be busy, as the first session for the "Learn to Skate" program will take place, as well as a Referee clinic. Everyone else is asked to come and participate in the UofI Homecoming parade. (Parade starts at 10 a.m.; please meet at 9:15 a.m. near the Habitat for Humanity Resale Store and Dutch Bros. For more info, please contact Joanne Tirocke by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.)
On Sunday, there will be a special, "Learn to Curl" session, and figure skating sessions will begin!
There's something for everyone! We can't wait to see YOU on the ice!
