Copperfield’s December Update for the Outdoor Rinks

Mahogany Copperfield cn MAH

The hockey rink and tot rink are located at the Copperfield Community Hall at 6 Copperstone Way, they are free for everyone to use and are very popular among residents of Copperfield.

Helmets are recommended. Skates/helmets are not provided. Skate training aids, hockey sticks, and pucks are available to borrow from the Sports Gear Lending Shed (follow instructions on the sign on the shed).

Hours

The rinks are open from 6:00 am to 10:00 pm, unless otherwise posted on the Copperfield Rink Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/groups/513299462824536). If the lights are off, the rink volunteers are performing maintenance.

Maintenance

Our amazing group of rink volunteers take care of our rinks on top of their jobs and their family life. Maintenance generally occurs after 8:00 pm. Flooding can only occur between -5 and -20 degrees. If it is too cold or too warm, please be patient. We promise the volunteers will get back out there as soon as possible! If you see these folks out working, please give them a wave and a thank you for their time.

Once the weather is consistently below -5, our volunteers will start flooding for this season. In recent years this has been in December, however, we are completely at the mercy of the weather so please bear with us. We will announce on our Facebook page when the rinks are ready for use.
