BARANOF PARK ICE RINK

For more information on the following ice rink programs and activities, contact Ice Rink Manager Courtney Webster at 481-8671.

KMXT’s Annual Skate with Santa will be Saturday, Dec. 17, from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Baranof Park skating rink. Hot chocolate, door prizes and skating with Santa. This free community event is sponsored by KMXT, Kodiak City Parks and Recreation and the Kiwanis club. All are invited.

Turkey curling: Turkey curling is a fun and free event open to everyone. This event is cosponsored by AC Food for Less, and will take place Saturday, Nov. 19, from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. Instead of curling stones, participants will use frozen milk jugs. The object is to slide your milk jug lengthwise from the opposite side of the rink, as close to the tee as possible. (The “tee” in curling is the target or goal. The in-zone face-off dot is what will be used to mark the tee.) Each person gets three tries. This will be a single-elimination event. The curler who comes closest to the tee or who lands on the tee is the winner. In the event of a tie, competition will continue to a second round. The rink will provide the milk jugs and AC Food for Less will provide the turkey. Participants need to provide clean shoes, warm clothing and a hunger to win.

Broomball is a game similar to ice hockey in which the players, not wearing skates, use broomsticks instead of hockey sticks to shoot a small soft volleyball-size ball into the opponent’s goal. For those who don’t know how to skate and would like to experience the ice, broomball is your sport. Broomball is a popular college intramural sport, it’s a great cardiovascular exercise, and it’s fun. Open to all ages and great for families. Broomball will be held Fridays 6 to 7 p.m. Broomsticks will be provided.

Coed hockey will be Fridays. It will be split into two sessions. The 7:30 to 8:45 p.m. session will be for beginning players. The 9:15 to 10:30 p.m. session will be for the intermediate/advanced players. Each session will have referees calling penalties. Also, the refs will explain the rules and etiquette of hockey.

Novice coed hockey will be held Saturdays 3:30 to 6 p.m. This time is for players who are interested in trying hockey in a beginner setting.

Stick and Puck will be held Monday, 7:30 to 9:30 p.m., and Sunday, 3:30 to 4:30 p.m. This is a time for all ages and skill levels to hone their skills. No games allowed. Players can focus on game fundamentals without the pressure of game situations.

Learn-to-Skate Program: The Ice Skating Institute lesson program is divided into separate classes according to various skill and age levels. There are tot classes for 3- to 5-year-olds, beginner classes, intermediate and advanced. Classes are a half-hour long, once a week, for five weeks in a group setting. The first session starts on Jan. 9, and the second session begins the week of Feb. 13. Register at the Teen Center.

Ice Rink Rental: The ice rink is available for rentals on Fridays from 3:30 to 7 p.m. Rental is $100 per hour. Groups that participate in scheduled activities, as opposed to renting the rink, are welcome but must share the rink with everyone else. Contact Courtney Webster, the ice rink manager, for further information, 486-8671.
