Sundays from 4-5 pm on the North Rink we are continuing our outdoor program designed to teach hockey skills in a fun and encouraging environment.
Each week we begin with free time with pucks and some games. Next we run drills based on age/ability. The last 15 minutes or so is spent scrimmaging or “playing shinny”. Score is not kept.
The program runs from December through February, as ice conditions dictate.
The minimum equipment requirements are skates, stick, and a full-cage helmet. If you do not have these items at home already, secondhand stores like Play-It-Again Sports and Source For Sports have used equipment for a good price. A simple wooden stick from Canadian Tire works just fine. There’s also a limited number of extra skates at Bourkevale that we can try and fit your child with on a first-come-first-served basis.
Your children are welcome to come and try a session, and if they are interested, a $25 fee will pay for their own jersey, hockey socks, after-session hot chocolate, and pizza party wind-up. Parents are encouraged to come on the ice and join in the fun!

Bourkevale's April 13 Annual General Meeting
The mother of two and grandmother of four began her volunteer career at Bourkevale - when the club was barely 20 years old - as a member of the ladies' auxiliary, which in those days were the chief operators of Winnipeg community centres. Joan took on a number of responsibilities at the club throughout the years, including canteen duties, the social committee and hall rental coordinator, a position she held until this month and one which she performed dutifully and with the kind of loyalty that keeps volunteer-based community clubs alive.
Joan is undoubtedly one of the longest serving volunteers of any community centre in the city, having given some 48 continuous years of her time, energy and passion to the club. She has not only "given back" to her community, she has helped make it what it is today; a close-knit, family-oriented group of area residents with a strong sense of collegiality.
Joan will be missed, but we know she'll still be around to help out with the odd event. Thank you Joan for your years of unwavering service to the community.

Bourkevale's rink project has been a major success. The new state-of-the-art rink boards and the re-asphalted north rink have exceeded all expectations. We captured a few images during construction to give you some idea of what went into this project. You can view the first video here if you missed it.

|Bourkevale's 2016 Annual General Meeting|
Elaine Nystrom was elected as the club's new president and Nick Hook was elected vice-president.
Outgoing president Gary Kristiansen and vice-president Tom Brodbeck were honoured for the eight years of service they provided to the club, which included transforming the community centre's finances into a more sustainable model that has allowed the club today to invest into important capital projects.
All board members agreed to stay on for another term in office, a testament to the dedication of area residents to the ongoing viability of the club. Suzanna Libby was elected as the board's new treasurer and former club president Dan Reles has agreed to remain on the board as second buildings and grounds director. St. James-Brooklands-Weston Councillor Scott Gillingham was also present for the AGM to lend his support to the community centre. As was former city councillor Jae Eadie, an area resident and a longtime supporter of Bourkevale.
Here is Bourkevale's new board:
Elaine Nystrom - President
Nick Hook - Vice-President/hockey convenor
Scotty Nystrom - 2nd Vice-President

The first incarnation of the Winnipeg Jets held a practice at Bourkevale Community Centre's outdoor rinks during the 1993-94 season. This picture was recently donated to us and we're happy to now have it in our possession.
Conspicuous in his absence from the picture was Jets forward Teemu Selanne, who was out with an injury at the time, a severed achilles. Winnipeg Sun staffers Ted Wyman and Kevin King helped us identify the players in this pic. If you have any further info or stories about this practice, including the identification of the players, please send us a note at email@example.com.

A big thanks to all the volunteers who helped decorate the hall and who stayed to clean up.
A special thanks to Dale and Ben for the fantastic job they did spinning the tunes and organizing the games for the kids.
This was community spirit at its best.

Bourkevale's ice rinks opened almost a week earlier than last year. And last year's opening date was a modern-day record. The north and south rinks typically open during the first week of December. But this year, the club officially opened the rinks to the public on Nov. 23. A sustained blast of cold air in November allowed our volunteer ice makers to get an early start on flooding the rinks.
Bourkevale needs volunteers to help clear the ice when there are heavy snowfalls. If you can spare an hour or two from time to time to pitch in, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll put your name on our volunteer list. You don't have to come out every time it snows. But if you can help out a few times during the season, it will help take the burden off the same few volunteers who do it every time it snows. We only need two or three volunteers to clear snow at a time. Without volunteers, we would not be able to provide the community with the quality and availability of ice rinks that we do.
Sign up for Bourkevale's email updates. If you want timely updates on what's happening at the club, send an email to email@example.com and we'll put you on the list. You can also sign up for our website email notifications by entering your email to the box on the right. Also, visit this website frequently for all your club information and updates.
