Kids show parents a thing or two about hockey

Bourkevale kicked off its first weekly Kids vs. Parents hockey game Sunday with more than 30 skaters out to play a little informal hockey and enjoy the outdoors. It appeared the kids were dominating most of the game although no official score has yet been registered with In any event, the kids and parents had a blast and it looks like this weekly event — held every Sunday from 1-2 p.m. on the north rink — will be a community favourite.

Huge crowds at Bourkevale

Bourkevale Community Centre was the only club with ice rinks open the first week of December in the St. James area. That's thanks to our dedicated volunteer ice-making crew who put in countless hours in the 10 days leading up to our official opening Nov. 28, providing area residents with excellent ice all week. And it's been drawing massive crowds.
Over 150 skaters and hockey players jammed into Bourkevale's two sheets of ice Thursday, Dec. 2, many of whom skated until 11:30 p.m.
