Get into the game with the Nakusp Scrimmage League

The Nakusp Scrimmage League is a new in-house league introduced in the fall, meant for kids ages 5-12

The Scrimmage League is a new in-house league introduced in the fall, meant for kids ages 5-12 with any skill level to come out and learn the game of hockey. With no travel and the option of doing one nine-week session or two, it appealed to those who wouldn’t normally be able to commit to a busy hockey season. Nakusp Minor Hockey used grant money to purchase new gear, and in combination with donations of gently used gear, helped to outfit  approximately 25 kids who registered for the first session. There are now 20 registered for the second session. Every Saturday morning from 9:30 to 10:30, they go on the ice for a fun-filled game of hockey. There are a crew of new faces volunteering on the ice, as well as on the bench and in the timekeeper’s box.

“Thanks goes out to all that helped this league get off the ground,” organizer Kari Hascarl wrote in an email to the Arrow Lakes News, “The feedback has been great.”

Hascarl invites everyone to come out for a breakfast bun on the weekend and check out some smiling faces loving the opportunity to play hockey.
