They will learn some basic first aid, phone precautions, household hazards, and emergency procedures.

Adult Co-Ed pick-up hockey happens every Sunday from 7:30 to 8:30 p.m. in the Kids Rink. Come and play some co-ed rec hockey where you can pay as you go. You can pay your drop-in fee of only $5 (TRP) at the skate shop, and sign in prior to going on the ice. Public skating staff will be there to collect payment. The focus is on fun and getting some extra time on the ice. Goalies play for free (must still sign in); full hockey gear and helmets are mandatory.
