From March 10 to 13, Rimbey will once again have the honourable responsibility to host the 2015 Hockey Alberta Provincial Championships on behalf of their major sponsor ATB Financial.

This year’s event is to be the PeeWee ‘C’ division playoffs. This tournament is the final deciding event for the top seven pee wee hockey teams and its host all representing their respected zones within the ‘C’ divisions from all over Alberta, and should prove to be some very exciting and emotional hockey watch.

Hosting this provincial event marks the third tournament within the past five years that Rimbey has been awarded this prestigious stage in which to put the spotlight on our national sport and, this year, on our local Pee Wee hockey team as well.

In the past the Rimbey Midgets and Bantams have been the teams to watch and they put forth a very

respectable and entertaining show for the spectators and the Pee Wee ‘C’ team will live up to

that and more in this year’s tournament.

Having this distinction to host this event is a great example for how our town is perceived as a hockey ambassador within our home zone and around our great province.

With this year’s event the tournament will open on a Thursday night with the our Canalta Pee Wee Rimbey Renegades playing the second game of the evening.

There will be an opening ceremony the following day, Friday March 11th at 1:30 p.m. in which all

are invited to partake. All the participating teams from around the province will be showcased in

this event and it should be quite an afternoon with guest speakers and other fun.

Our Canalta Rimbey Renegades will playing their second game after the conclusion of the opening event.
