We will help unload equipment, Bauer reps, will prep volunteers on how to properly fit the equipment, so we are all ready for the 6-8pm fittings and stay afterward for the take down/cleanup.  Anyone interested please email us at [email protected]

Follow us on Facebook and or check in with our website  and look for Pond Hockey Sundays.  Most sessions will take place in Norfolk County's Talbot Gardens in Simcoe.  This will be a trial run, and  we welcome all ages at the beginning.  Organizers will have the right to trim numbers down if need be and will do so by age.  Our focus is on grass roots hockey.  Minimum equipment required - CSA approved helmet, gloves, stick and skates.

Unfortunately we will have to charge a price per head because the county is charging us for prime ice which is $185/hr. any excess money goes back into the Stix n Pix fund to continue this program.

Thank you to Norfolk County, and all our Sponsors & Donors for helping to make this possible

See you at the rink...
