Public Skating & Drop-In Hockey

The City of Kimberley is excited to offer Public, Parent & Tot, and Senior Skating and Drop-in Hockey at the Civic Centre with new health and safety measures in place. All those aged 22 and over are required to show proof of double vaccine & purchase a non-refundable access card (one-time $5 purchase).

Follow these easy steps prior to heading to the rink!

STEP 1: Pop by the Aquatic Centre to show your proof of vaccine, and

STEP 2: Purchase a $5 access card while there to allow entrance to the Civic Centre (Rotary Drive entrance). 

STEP 3: Head to the rink during FREE skates and have fun! 

Participants will gain access to the facility by swiping their access cards to open Rotary Drive entrance doors (near spray park). Please use the stairway at the South east end of the building to access ice. Use dressing room #1 and/or the hallway benches downstairs to change and store items.

Staff at the Civic Centre are unable to take payment or verify proof of vaccine. This MUST be done in advance. Please ensure all members of your party have their own access card as random checks will take place.
