Golden Minor Hockey kicks off a new season of fun and games

Minor Hockey has started another season in Golden.

The Golden Minor Hockey Association is up and running for the season.

This year GMHA, in conjunction with the Columbia Basin Trust, is offering a shinny hockey program every Wednesday night from 8:30 to 9:30 p.m.

The program is open to all boys and girls ages 11 to 18. The first shinny session was on Wednesday Oct. 3, and the program will continue to run until the end of February.

No previous hockey playing experience will be necessary, however players will need their own equipment including a helmet with a proper face mask, hockey gloves, skates and a proper stick.

Now is the perfect time to try it out, because for the month of October the shinny program will be free of charge.

Starting in November punch card passes will be available. A five-pass card is $30, and a 10-pass card is $50.

For more information on the program please visit the GMHA website at, or email to
