Season Kick-Off Event

By Shannon Brown, 08/09/23, 8:45AM CDT



Join us for our 2nd annual Tailgate & Skate on Saturday, August 19th from 12-4pm at Southwest Ice Arena. We have exciting raffles and fun in store for everyone that comes out! From a FREE open skate and Alumni game to Live Music and Inflatable fun!

Players don’t miss out on the opportunity to dunk your favorite coaches in our Dunk Tank this year! Parents we have a Sparx Skate Sharpening Starter Bundle raffle, a SuperDeker raffle and Cubs Premium Seats raffle to take part in. We will also have the grill fired up to offer up some tasty tailgate treats from our rink favorite, Ms. Lynn! We hope to see everyone there as we kick-off the 63rd year of Knights Hockey!
