Looking to get rid of hockey gear that is not being used? PRO Kids will take it off your hands! We're doing a hockey equipment drive, with all donated equipment going to children and youth supported by PRO Kids this hockey season. 

Equipment must be in good condition! We accept skates, sticks, socks, pants, elbow, shoulder, and shin pads. Unfortunately we cannot accept used helmets.  

Running from September 3-8 bring your equipment to:

                             Canada Games Complex
                             420 Winnipeg Ave
                             Regular operating hours

                             Kinsmen Youth Centre
                             609 James Street North
                             Monday-Friday 3:30pm-9:00pm
                             Saturday 1:00pm-5:00pm

Annual events

PRO Kids family skates

We invite you to put on your skates and helmet and join us on the ice at the Fort William Gardens for not one but two family skates. Both skates have awesome games and prizes, face painting and special guests. Look for our Shaw Family skate this holiday season and our Mac's Family Skate next spring!

Conquer the Tower

The fundraiser that makes the biggest splash! Each fall we invite local community leaders and business owners to take the plunge off the diving towers at the Canada Games Complex. The more money raised the higher they have to jump.

 

Thank you to our 2018 sponsors
