Noah Best, 9 years-old and Finley Kinghorn, 11 years-old were the two happy winners of the Co-ed Hockey program.

The contest was funded and sponsored by an anonymous community member, and Rossland Recreation drew the winners on September 29.

There are two Co-ed Hockey Programs. The youth program for 11-13 year-olds,is new and was started after many inquiries for an older group.

“It is perfect for kids who can’t commit to a team,” says Rossland Recreation’s Pam Shirley. With the co-ed hockey programs the kids are able to get ice time once a week, even if they have a busy schedule.

Anna Hogarth is coaching both the youth group and the recreational group for 5 to 10 year-olds. The program started in the beginning of October and lasts until the middle of February.

It is non-contact hockey and Hogarth coaches the kids to improve their hockey skills and have a positive attitude. The kids must provide their own equipment and it has to be approved by Hogarth.


The youth group meets in the Arena on Mondays at 3:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. and  the program costs $105. The younger kids meet on Thursdays at 3:45 p.m. to 5 p.m. with a cost of $120.
