Hockey numbers going up

Sportsplex manager makes report to town council on programs at the arena

In his report to town council on Oct. 20, Sportsplex manager Roger Mayer noted that the hockey school held at the end of summer was very successful, with 70 participants.

Minor hockey registration is up from last season. The numbers include 12 players from 100 Mile House who are playing with local teams as there is no hockey in their age groups in that community.

Raft Mountain Skating Club has increased its membership from last season as well. The figure-skaters have increased their ice rentals and coaching staff.

The skating club and minor hockey are working together on a learn to skate program for five- and six-year-olds.

Raft River Elementary School’s skating program is up and running again this season.

Clearwater Secondary School’s hockey academy had more requests for enrolment than it had spaces.

In adult hockey, there has been growth in men’s recreation, old-timers and ladies hockey.

Wells Gray Curling Club’s season was due to start on Oct. 28 and has three bonspiels planned.

Clearwater has applied to host a minor hockey provincial championship again. The community is also looking to host pre-competition games and/or a camp for the 2016 women’s world hockey championships next March.
