Pond Hockey Schedule

2018 Castleton Cup Pond Hockey Tournament Schedule

Tomorrow looks like it’s going to a great day for the tournament.  Please be at the fields a minimum of 15 minutes before your schedule time.  This is meant to be a fun day for all please be respectful of everyone involved.  We also ask that you maintain a safe distance from the zamboni when it is in operation.

Good luck




Deadline fo registration is Monday, February 12 at 6:00 p.m.  NO LATE ENTRIES WILL BE ACCEPTED.



The weather is looking favourable for our annual Pond Hockey tournament scheduled for Monday, February 19, with great news.  A second rink has been installed that has allowed organizers to offer a 19 and over division.  Same rules apply.  Contact either Jeff or Stacy to register (information below)


The tournament will run if weather conditions permit

Goal Keepers Clinic

The Field House in Hastings is offering a goalkeepers clinic to give them a head start on the season.  Contact the Field House to register, information in the flyer.


Volleyball will run tonight. 6:30 at the school


Once again the rink is closed due to warm weather conditions.  STAY OFF THE ICE UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.  We understand a free activity is attractive but if the ice is used before it has fully frozen again you are only making more work for our volunteers.  No one is paid to make the rink usable, this is entirely undertaken by a volunteers.  It has also been brought to my attention that certain users aren’t cleaning up after themselves when they are done skating.  Our volunteers are putting in hours at night or early in the morning before they start work, they don’t have time to be cleaning up after disrespectful individuals.  If you bring something in with you TAKE IT WITH YOU.    Sadly if this situation is not rectified the rink will cease to exist.

Pond Hockey Tournament

Plans are being made to host a Pond Hockey tournament, complete with the Castleton Cup.  Our tentative date is Monday, February 19, Family Day but Mother Nature will ultimately decide if this event will happen.   The tournament will be open to players 18 and under.  Updates and details will be posted here


A Request

It has come to our attention that snowmobiles are being driven on the soccer fields.  We respectfully request that any riders stay to the perimeter of the fields.  All the fields were seeded in the fall and prepped for more fertilizer and seed in the spring.  The last 2 years have taken a devastating toll on the fields and it will be a slow, expensive process to bring them back.  Snowmobiles can damage the surface.  We understand that occasionally users of the rink often ride up to the fields but please respect the work we have undertaken.

Yoga in the Castleton Town Hall

Still time to take advantage of the Whole Shebang or just come to try a class for $10.  Laura has taken a personal leave, we wish her well.  Janine has agreed to lead class for the next session and the feedback from her first class has been very positive.  Remember to bring water, your mat, a blanket and layers, the hall can be quite cool.

Paint Night

We will be hosting an all ages Paint Night at the Castleton Town Hall on Friday, April 13 at 6:30.  We require a minimum number of participants to register which can be done here.  This is the painting that has been selected for you to paint.  These events are a lot of fun and it is guaranteed that no two paintings will be exactly the same.  No experience is necessary, all supplies are provided.

Please note, as this is an all ages event, this will be a dry paint night unlike most paint nights.  Light refreshments will be available.


The annual AGM is scheduled for Monday, Jan 15 at the Castleton United Church.  All are welcome to attend.  New members are always needed.
