Town invites community to celebrate Oakville’s Olympic and Paralympic Athletes

October 28, 2016, event will feature reception and autograph session with local athletes

The Olympic spirit will shine bright in Oakville when Mayor Rob Burton and Members of Council host a special event celebrating local summer Olympic and Paralympic athletes on October 28 at Sixteen Mile Sports Complex.

The celebration gets underway at 6:30 p.m. with an autograph session. Confirmed guests include two-time Olympic bronze medalist Diana Matheson, four-time Olympic medalist Adam Van Koeverden, and Olympic Canoe-Kayak athlete KC Fraser.

“This free event is Oakville’s opportunity to show our athletes in person how proud we are of their Olympic journey,” said Mayor Rob Burton. “I hope everyone will join us to celebrate their accomplishments not just as athletes, but as role models for our community’s youth.”

The event will also include a pre-game ceremony in advance of the Oakville Blades hockey game. Sports fans are encouraged to make an evening of the celebration and stick around to cheer on the Oakville Blades as they take on the Toronto Patriots. This year marks the 50th anniversary of the Oakville Blades Hockey Club and its great tradition of hockey in our community. Kids under 12 can enjoy the game for free.

Learn about the game of hockey at free ‘RBC Play Hockey Day for Kids’

Space is limited, so register today!

If your child has never had the chance to lace up a pair of skates to play our national sport, now they can — for free! The Town of Oakville is offering boys and girls aged five to 12 the opportunity to learn about the game of hockey as part of RBC Play Hockey Day for Kids on Sunday, April 3 at Oakville’s state-of-the-art Sixteen Mile Sports Complex.

As part of the planned hockey try-it events, Town of Oakville trained instructors will walk participants through skills, drills and entertaining activities — both on and off the ice.  Previous hockey experience is not required.

“Playing hockey on the ice for the first time can be intimidating,” said Nina de Vaal, director of Recreation and Culture for the Town of Oakville. “Not only will this program encourage kids to get active in a fun setting, but it will build confidence and hopefully a love for the game.”

RBC Play Hockey Day for Kids event times:

Age 5 and 6: 12:30–3 p.m.
Age 7 and 8: 12:30–3 p.m.
Age 9 and 10: 1:30–4:45 p.m.

Registration forms are available on the arenas page and can be emailed to orhl@oakville.ca, faxed to 905-815-6178 or dropped off in-person at Town Hall, Recreation and Culture department, 1225 Trafalgar Road or Sixteen Mile Sports Complex, 3070 Neyagawa Boulevard. Spaces are limited so register today! Deadline to register is Thursday, March 31, 2011.

Participants are required to bring a helmet, stick and skates. Full equipment is not necessary. Drinks and healthy snacks will be provided. For more information please call 905-845-6601, ext. 7204.

Oakville’s RBC Play Hockey Day for Kids was made possible through the RBC Play Hockey grants program which focuses on growing the game of hockey from the grassroots level. Grants are awarded to community hockey organizations, sports associations and hockey-minded individuals with great ideas to grow the game and keep hockey vital.
