Check out some of the events going on for Hockey Week in Regina here. Check seeyqr.ca for more info!
Earlier this week, manual preparation began for the NHL Labour Day Classic. I had the honour and privilege of spending Thursday morning with a crew of volunteer ice-makers from across the province. The group effort required for Mosaic Stadium’s conversion is nothing short of remarkable and clearly demonstrates what Saskatchewan is all about. With just over a week until the puck drops, the anticipation throughout Regina is becoming palpable. Although our NHL debut next Saturday is undeniably the main attraction, there are plenty of other cool activities over the next week that can keep us occupied in the meantime.
1. Free public skating
From Monday, October 21 until Thursday, October 24, there will be FREE family skating from 4:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. in the Brandt Centre. If you can, try to attend on Tuesday when they’ll be hosting a mini-skills competition and a “Skate with the U of R Cougars Night”. There will be a Tim Hortons Truck on the grounds offering warm beverages, and plenty of NHL swag to be given out!
2. Yoga like a Goalie
Yoga and hockey collide in a fun practice at Steel Mace Valkyrie where you can learn yoga skills that will simultaneously improve your ability in front of the net. Register online at https://tourismregina.com/seeyqr/hockey-week-activities
3. Woman in Sport Panel Discussion
On Thursday, October 24, we are honouring Woman’s History Month with a discussion that will feature three female Sports Hall of Fame inductees. This panel will address the hurdles they faced as women in high-level athletics and the impact that their respective sport had on their lives. The discussion will commence at 8:30 p.m. at the Cornwall Centre.
4. Hockey Week Pancake Breakfast
FREE pancakes...Need I say more? Join us on Friday at City Centre Plaza where you can get a tall-stack to fuel up for the weekend's festivities. This kicks off at 8:30 a.m. and continues while supplies last.
5. Local Market Hat Trick
Regina’s newest community hotspot is joining in on the fun and offering a day full of hockey arcade games, food, and a special sports pop-up market. Check it out between 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Local Market.
These are just a few of the many events leading up the puck dropping on October 26! To get further details and see the full event calendar go to https://tourismregina.com/seeyqr/hockey-week-activities
