Where are your programs offered?
Killarney Ice Rink is our home club rink and all of our on-ice programs are offered there during the Fall and Winter sessions. During the Spring and Summer sessions there is no ice at Killarney so our programs move to other local rinks. These rink locations can change based on availability but we generally operate out of Sunset and Hillcrest rinks during Spring and Summer.
Our off-ice program locations are generally at the same rink or affiliated community centre as out on-ice sessions pending availability. Always confirm the location for both On and Off-ice sessions in the schedule and/or Uplifter.
