WHY BECOME A Community League MEMBER?
Did you know that Community League facilities are managed and operated completely by COMMUNITY VOLUNTEERS? The City of Edmonton provides the land and contributes some programs and resources, but the City does NOT manage or maintain any of our facilities (hall or rink). Work is done by community volunteers and most funds are via volunteer fundraising projects. Want to have a nice ice surface to skate on? JOIN US. Any help would be greatly appreciated by those who are already spending countless hours volunteering their time to provide this to the community. There are many other opportunities to help out too. But the FIRST and foremost important thing: Become a member. Community League membership is the foundation of all this, and it's literally pennies per day (now rounded off to nickels, of course 🤣). We look forward to seeing you!
Membership Benefit Update- Swimming at Terwillegar: As many of you are aware, we switched our swim location from the William Lutsky YMCA to Terwillegar Recreation Center back in September. We did this after numerous comments about wanting a better swim location & the low usage at the YMCA. Since making the change, we continue to see low membership usage of our Community League swim time. At our AGM, we stated the switch to Terwillegar Recreation Center was a pilot project for the 2018-2019 membership year. If the Community League usage did not increase then the Board of Directors would consider removing swimming as a benefit of membership. If you want to see a Community League swim time remain as a benefit of having a community league membership, please start using the Terwillegar swimming facility on Saturday's from 5-7pm.
Rink is now open on days when temperatures are below 0. It will remain closed when temperatures are above 0º or below -20º with the wind chill. Open daily until 10:00 pm. May be closed for maintenance or private events. Please check community calendar. Change area & washrooms will remain open for skaters until 10:30 when door locks automatically. Please take all belongings as door will not unlock until 9 am the next day. Change area may be closed due to weather or private events.
