It’s an activity that can get your heart pumping and works to improve your endurance, balance and co-ordination.

The skating schedule at the Cariboo Memorial Recreation Complex begins on Sept. 28 with a toonie skate from 11 to 12:30 p.m.

Noon hour adult skates are available on Monday and Wednesday, and Shinney Hockey goes on Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. Pre-school skating lessons are also offered and a new speed skating program is being launched.

Due to the generosity of local businesses, the Cariboo Memorial Recreation Complex is excited to offer Free Public or Family Skates every month this upcoming skating season.

The first Free Skate is sponsored by the Kiwanis Club of Williams Lake. It will be on Saturday, Sept. 29 from 1 to 2:30 p.m.

The second will be on Oct. 21 and is sponsored by the Girl Guides and Boy Scouts. Pick up a copy of the Guide to Active Living for the skate schedule and list of Special Ice Events or visit www.activewilliamslake.com.
