OUR PRIDDIS COMMUNITY

ASSOCIATION MISSION

Join the Priddis Panthers this season!

Registration for Priddis Panthers Pond Hockey is now open.  Registration is open from Aug 15 to Sep 4 and can be completed online using TeamSnap at https://go.teamsnap.com/forms/240464  The registration process in Team Snap is efficient but we are available to help you through it if you need assistance.  Please email or call if we can help. 

 

We are continuing to work with Hockey Alberta to follow the government protocols for COVID and ensure that our children remain safe.  With the return to school announcement, we are even more optimistic that our season will go ahead as planned.  In the small chance that the season is cancelled or cut short, please be reassured that we will refund the applicable fees.

 

Registration for 12 and under costs $300

Registration for 13 and over costs $350

 

·        Each family is required to pay the $25 Priddis Community Association fee

·        There will be no increase in fees this year

·        Each family will still be required to volunteer throughout the season, however the number of hours required have  decreased from 20 to 15hrs per player. This is, in large part, due to our new zamboni.  Volunteer preferences can be selected as part of your online registration

·        We will be collecting a refundable jersey payment of $100/player at the time of registration.  This payment will be returned at the end of the season once the jersey is returned.

·        Payment can be made by VISA, Mastercard, or e-transfer

·        There is a $50 administrative fee per player if withdrawing their application for the season after the season has started.  COVID related changes and refunds will not incur admin fees and refunds will be given if the season is cancelled.

 

We are looking forward to an awesome season and hope you can join us starting in October.

Recycling Coming Along in Priddis!

Our new bottle recycling bins have arrived and are located in the west end of the Priddis Community Hall parking lot by the rink. Thanks to a very generous grant of $6,987 from the Alberta Beverage Container Recycling Corp’s (ABCRC) Community Champions Program, we now have 4 new secure beverage container donation bins. A special thank you goes out to Brandon from Rangeview Fabricating in Ontario for making our bins. They look amazing! The bottle recycling program is a significant fundraiser for the Priddis Panthers Hockey Association. Thank you to everyone making donations as this supports youth in your community.

 

Note: it is recommended that boxes with donations be sealed and smaller bags be used so they fit easily into the roller chutes.

Priddis Community Rink Re-build

At the Skate with Santa event on December 15th, 2019, Terry French, director of the Spruce Meadows Leg Up Foundation, presented a $20,000 cheque to the Priddis Community Association for the rink rebuild. Priddis area residents are one step closer to getting their rink rebuilt thanks to Spruce Meadows!

2020 Priddis Community Hall Time Capsule

A Time Capsule Ceremony will be held on July 5th at the 2020 Stampede Breakfast.

Let's go back in time ...

In July 1967, Priddis residents decided to commemorate Canada’s Centennial with a time capsule. Three young boys from the community were chosen as stewards, being 3rd generation residents of the Priddis area.

On the 50th anniversary, an official ceremony was held at the 2017 Stampede Breakfast. Two of the three stewards were available to open the time capsule, Scott Stewart and Kevin Stanton. Close to 1,000 people were in attendance that day, including Lt.-Gov. Lois Mitchell.

If you are interested in helping to coordinate details of this very special ceremony, items to be placed in the capsule, selecting stewards, etc., please contact priddissecretary@gmail.com

Priddis Community Library

The Priddis Library is in the old school house beside the outdoor rink and is open Tuesday and Friday from 3:00 to 5:00 pm. Drop in to borrow a book or donate your used books. Arlene, Geraldine and/or Carol would love to see you come by and take advantage of this great local resource. The library hours can be extended with more volunteer help. Please contact Arlene at (403) 931-3750 and let her know when you are available.

Do you have a Priddis History Story to Tell
