Blackout Dates, Christmas Break, End of Season
During the season there will be a few dates when rinks will be closed and that will affect team practices.
Teams will get a credit and can request a makeup practice if their scheduled practice is on these dates:
Oct 2 in Blackie only - practices were cancelled due to inclement weather
Oct 8 in High River only - Thanksgiving Day
Oct Date TBD - picture night
Dec 3 in High River large ice only - Town of High River function
Jan 1 - New Year Day
The Christmas break will be between Dec 21 and Jan 2nd. There will be no scheduled practices during the Christmas break. However, teams may contact the Operations Manager to check ice availability and schedule an extra practice or an exhibition game at their expense.
In order to avoid a situation when a team is charged for unused ice, all cancelled ice at any rink has to be returned (an email notification to the Operations Manager) no later than 14 days before booking time.
