In Canada, everybody loves a good skate, but sometimes, the ice gets a little too busy for a skate with young children. This December in Cornwall, however, you’ll have several chances to take your kids to the rink, without having to contend with crowds of hockey players. Let us point you in the direction of these family skates!
Family Stick & Puck Skate- December 13& 14:
This event goes down at The Benson Centre, just moments from our comfortable hotel. There, you’’ find the opportunity to skate with your kids (between the ages of 5-14), while reviewing the fundamentals of hockey. Help your young ones improve their game without worrying about being knocked over by more experienced skaters! Admission is just $5.00 per person. Just remember to review the rinks rules and regulations before you head out!
Parent/Tot Skate- December 17:
Days later, head back down to the Benson centre for a family skate that welcomes even younger skaters. The event, which runs from 10:00-11:00am, clears the ice for the youngest skaters, giving them the opportunity to get a hang of the very basics. As usual, helmets are required for all young skaters.
Senior Skate- December 19:
Hoping to go for a skate with grandma or grandpa? Now’s your chance, as the Benson Centre opens the ice for a special, seniors skate. This skate, offered courtesy of the City of Cornwall runs from 1:30-2:00 pm. Don’t miss it!
Cornwall Colts Games:
The Colts, as always, have a busy month. So, if you have a hankering for hockey, but you don’t have the energy to play, take a trip to the Cornwall Civic Complex to catch the Colts in action. Their December highlights include a December 7th showdown with the Ottawa Junior Senators, a clash with Gloucester Rangers on the 11th, and a highly-anticipated game with the Hawksbury Hawks on the 18th. Get your tickets at the door, or online! Head down with your family for a great time on a budget.
Yes, whether you want to take to the ice yourself, or watch from the bleachers, you’ve got plenty of options this December in Cornwall. Best of all, they’re all just a short distance from our cozy hotel. Book your room today!
