RBC grant to sharpen skating skills

Mini-Wranglers Skating Program benefits from RBC Learn To Skate Grant

100 Mile House RBC manager Scott Saito presented Kim Mills with a $3

A program for young local skaters got a big funding boost.

100 Mile House RBC manager Scott Saito presented Kim Mills, coordinator of the Mini-Wranglers Skating Program, with a $3,000 RBC Learn to Skate Grant on Dec. 9.

The program teaches children the basics of skating before they enter minor hockey.

“It basically gets them ready for hockey,” Mills explains. “So when they get on the ice, the coaches can actually start teaching hockey, instead of skating.”

A 10-week session recently wrapped-up, and another 10-week session slated after Christmas is already full.

To sign-up for a future session scheduled for next fall, contact the 100 Mile House & District Minor Hockey Association office at 250-395-4344.
