Rimbey Arena ice set for end of September

Rimbey Minor Hockey still taking registrations

Ice should be ready at the Rimbey arena on Monday, September 28.

The ice plant will start up on Sept. 14 and the process of making the ice will begin.

“We are starting later this year due to the lack of scheduled games on the weekends,” said Cindy Bowie, director of community services for the Town of Rimbey.

“Our ice use is good for the weeknights but weekends at the start of the season is pretty slow and so we negotiated with minor hockey on the later startup date.”

The town usually starts making ice right after the Labour Day long weekend, and it’s ready within two weeks for use by Rimbey minor hockey.

Pond hockey and adult teams start in October.

“We are still working on the Arena guidelines for our facility to make everyone feel welcome and safe,” said Bowie.

Rimbey Minor Hockey (RMH) is still accepting registrations for the 2020-21 season and all new players are welcome.

The website states that prorated refunds will be issued based on the season length if the upcoming season is delayed or modified.

Hockey Alberta released its “Return to Hockey” document at the end of June, and released an update on Aug. 21.

With the modified competition season, the focus will be on player development.

The updated plan clarifies the types of competition that are allowed during the modified season, mask-wearing requirements and updates information on certification requirements, clinics and registration for coaches.
