Statement of Objectives

As obtained from the USRC Recreation Plan

  • Provide skating opportunities for about 26 to 30 weeks per year (at least), including learn-to-skate programs, public and family recreational skating, special events and tournaments, figure skating and hockey at all levels;
  • Provide other ice based activity including such things as introduction to curling, ball hockey, broom ball, shinny and ringette;
  • Provide a wide variety of dry floor activities on the arena floor when the ice is not provided – such as roller blading, lacrosse, futsal (indoor soccer) and large special events, trade shows and social gatherings;
  • Offer a variety of instructional programs in various sports, cultural activities, crafts, music, arts, educational areas;
  • Accommodate a wide variety of indoor sports in the gymnasium such as basketball, volleyball, badminton, and gymnastics;
  • Provide a safe and welcoming place for residents to drop in and socialize (like a coffee house) even if they aren’t involved in any of the above activities, but just want to watch or meet others; and,
  • Provide fitness and wellness opportunities on a drop in basis, a program basis
    or a rental basis for personal trainers and their clients or members of the general public.

In addition to providing activities within the Recreation Centre, it will extend services outside its walls and provide regional coordinating function and support services in the following areas:

  • Information about recreation opportunities in the region and how to access them (e.g., trail maps);
  • Leadership training clinics and services (e.g., coaching and officials training in partnership with regional, provincial and national organizations);
  • Coordination of volunteer efforts on major regional projects (e.g., sports leagues, inter-community special events and bringing expertise into the region); and,
  • Coordination of existing and augmented transportation services so that people access the opportunities that already exist and will be added through the new Centre.
