Winter Sports Fun
Small wonder that so many winter Olympians are Canadian. In our Northern climate, we have long, cold winters where we can play virtually every winter sport imaginable! Come enjoy an old favourite or give a new sport a try (broomball, anyone!?).
This year's activities include:
Jam Can Curling
One of Canada's favourite Olympic sports, curling is a popular pass time at the Silver Skate Festival. Curling lanes will be created beside the Hawrelak Pavillion.
Originating in Canada, Broomball is a recreational ice game that is played with a stick called a broom and a ball. At the Silver Skate Festival we play on a snowpack field. Tactics and plays are similar to those used in sports such as ice hockey and roller hockey but we focus on fun.
Practice your shot, improve your accuracy. Hockey nets and sticks are set up in our "They Shoot, they score" range.
