McCauley Community Rink Schedule

Fresh ice nearing completion on the rink. Dan Glugosh

It has been a good November for anyone who is excited about outdoor skating. The early cold weather was a blessing for the rink. The ice was made early and we were able to open on November 18 to start off the 2014/15 skating season.

We are excited about the diversity of the programming that has been added for this season. One of the requests that we heard from the community is more family and adult skating times, where the community can come out and have a fun skate. We have added family/public skates every Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday, from 6 – 7:30 p.m.; Saturday 1 – 5 p.m.; and Sunday 2 – 5 p.m. and hope these will become popular times for the community.

Along with that, there are all ages shinny hockey nights on Saturdays, from 5 – 7 p.m. and for adults on Sundays from 5-7 p.m. Open ice times will be for whatever everyone would like to do and will be on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday from 7:30 – 8:30 p.m. and Wednesday from 6 – 8:30 p.m. The popular wiener Wednesday from the past is back every Wednesday from 4 – 6 p.m. (Thank you to Myros Rexall pharmacy for sponsoring all the hotdogs and refreshments). E4C along with KIDS is offering a hockey program for all kids ages 5-12, every Wednesday from 4 – 6 p.m. I also hear that on Wednesdays some players from the Memorial Champion Oil Kings will be strapping on the skates to help the kids out with some hockey skills.

The rink will be open at 4 p.m. Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday. On Thursday we will open at 2:30 p.m. as many schools have early dismissal. Saturdays the rink will open at 1 p.m. and Sundays 2 p.m. Any time the weather reaches -17 or when there are large amounts of snow it will be closed. All closures will be posted at the McCauley Community League’s website.

If there are any other programming ideas you have please feel free to send an email to

The popular Edmonton City Police McCauley Cup will be held on December 23. Everyone is welcome to come out and play some shinny with the EPS. This is an all ages event and there will be prizes along with hot chocolate and a wiener roast.

Our community Family Day skating party will be held on Monday February 16. There will be horse wagon rides, hot chocolate, wiener roast, and other activities. This is in partnership with Revitalization.

We are also working on two Saturday dancing skating nights in partnership with Latitude 53. Stay tuned for more information.

For all programming, all dates and times for the above, and future events please go to the MCL website and continue reading Boyle McCauley News.

All events and programming are in partnership with KIDS and the McCauley Community League.
