Eager young Battlefords and area hockey players and their families participated in the Canadian Tire First Shift event at Don Ross Centre Thursday evening. The program is a nationwide one designed to ease families who are new to hockey into the game. This initial session included instructions on the proper fit and maintenance of hockey equipment and a demonstration on how kids should get dressed in their hockey gear. The boys and girls were then fitted with the equipment they will need to start playing, including gloves, pads, sticks and skates. On-ice sessions are slated to begin Nov. 4 and continue through Dec. 16 at the Don Ross Arena in North Battleford. Photos by John Cairns
