Kids soccer season going ahead

“It’s not going to look like our previous seasons,” says TinaMarie Ritter, with Slave Lake Minor Soccer Association.
The season doesn’t start until May 17, so the restrictions may change, but the association decided to plan the season based on the current restrictions for outdoor recreation.

Icedogs back in their natural habitat (indoor ice)

As reported in this space a week ago, the Slave Lake Icedogs got back to practicing on indoor ice on Feb. 22. It’s not exactly normal, but as head coach Gregg Kennedy says, any indoor ice is better than none at this point.
One reason he said that was because the temperature that day was well above freezing and the outdoor rinks were in bad shape.
