  • The Alberta Sport Development Centre – Central (ASDC-C) is pleased to announce that the ASDC-Central Male Athlete of the Month for February 2018 is Kyle Rix.

    Kyle Rix is a 16 year old Red Deer, AB resident, Grade 10 student at Hunting Hills High School and a competitive multi-sport athlete. Kyle currently competes with the Central Alberta Basketball Club, Central Alberta Kings Volleyball Club, and also plays on the Hunting Hills Lightning Senior Boys Basketball and Volleyball teams.  Further, Kyle runs track & field and plays on the tennis team for Hunting Hills.

    Kyle was athlete of the year at Eastview Middle School in both grade 7 and 8 and was also Hunting Hills Grade 9 Athlete of the year in 2017.  He won Bronze at the 2016 Alberta Summer Games with his team in basketball and was also named basketball MVP for Hunting Hills in 2017.

    This is Kyle’s second year with the Alberta Sport Development Centre program.  Kyle has benefitted significantly from the mental skills training which has improved his ability to focus more effectively in challenging game situations.  Most of his ASDC physical training takes place in the off-season given his busy practice and competition schedule, but he enjoys the supportive, progressive training environment that ASDC provides.

    Kyle has been playing competitive basketball since he was nine years old and is very passionate about the sport.  He hopes to have the opportunity to continue to play basketball at the post-secondary and professional levels after high school. Kyle’s strong work ethic, his undeniable athletic abilities and his training experiences with ASDC-Central, he will surely continue to grow, develop and succeed in his basketball/volleyball career!

    ASDC-Central thanks Tom Bast Sports for celebrating the ASDC-Central Athlete of the Month recipients by the provision of commemorative apparel for each recipient.

  • From the Town of Blackfalds

    Council chooses Architect to move Multi-Plex expansion plans forward

    Town Council unanimously approved the next step in the expansion to the Blackfalds Multi-Plex, which will include a second ice surface and other possible amenity space needs. Following a thorough competition and review process, the Town awarded the Architectural Services contract for the expansion of the Multi-Plex to ACI Architects Inc.

    “We had great interest with 13 different submissions for our Request for Proposal process and following the review and evaluation process we were able to determine the group that best met the criteria and expectations in moving this project forward.,” said Mayor Richard Poole. “The winning group from ACI includes members we have worked with in the past who helped us build our award-winning Abbey Centre.”

    An additional ice surface was identified as a Community priority within the next seven years through the 2015 Town of Blackfalds Recreation and Parks Master Plan. The Town of Blackfalds included capital funding in the 2018 budget to undertake the design and contract document development. The Town has also identified funding in the long-range capital funding plan for the construction of the expansion. Community members responded positively to this project establishing a fundraising group to support this initiative. The Dual Ice Development Society (DIDS) is represented by all current users of the existing arena and are working towards raising $1 Million dollars as their commitment to this project.

    The Town will be entering into a contract with ACI Architects Inc. for the submitted bid amount of $743,355 which is less than the budgeted amount for this component of the project. Pre- construction estimates for the Multi-Plex expansion is estimated at $15 million dollars with construction timeline set for 2021.

  • From RDC Athletics

    Red Deer College Athletics is proud to announce our Boston Pizza Athletes of the Week.

    1. Emma Holmes – Queens Volleyball Hometown – Red Deer, AB Bachelor of Kinesiology (1st year) (pictured above)

    This past Friday in Calgary, Emma recorded eight kills, 12 digs and one ace in a three set victory over the Ambrose University Lions (25-15, 27-25 and 25-22). Then on Saturday at the Gary W. Harris Canada Games Centre, the five-foot-ten outside hitter was a key player in the Queens’ four set win over the Lions (25-16, 25-22, 16-25 and 32-30). Emma led the way offensively for both teams, totaling 17 kills. The student-athlete from Red Deer added 10 digs and was selected as the Queens Player-of-the-Game.

    Entering this past weekend, the RDC Queens trailed the Ambrose University Lions in the south standings by four points. With help from the Bachelor of Kinesiology student, the Queens won back- to-back matches against the Lions, vaulting the RDC team into a tie with Ambrose University for third spot in the division.

    2. Spencer Klassen – Kings Basketball Hometown – Red Deer, AB Bachelor of Education Elementary (4th year)

    Despite the Kings dropping an 80-72 home decision this past Friday to the St. Mary’s University Lightning, Spencer played a solid game, accumulating 26 points, six rebounds and five steals, and was named the Kings Player-of-the-Game. Then the six-foot-two guard led the charge in Calgary on Saturday, helping the Kings earn an impressive 108-82 bounce-back victory over the Lightning. He played an integral part in the RDC Kings scoring over 100 points, with 34 of his own. The Bachelor of Education Elementary student added five assists and three rebounds, and remarkably hit eight-of- eleven from behind the three-point arc.

    Spencer consistently leads by example and has a tremendous work ethic. The fourth-year student- athlete is a positive teammate and role model for youth. His 23.9 points per game leads Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference (ACAC) Men’s Basketball.

    This Week in RDC Athletics

    This week, the RDC Kings Hockey team will play an important weekend series against the NAIT Ooks, who are chasing the Kings in the standings. The Hockey Queens will also be back in action as they take on the defending champions, the MacEwan University Griffins, in a pair of games. Both basketball teams will play a home-and-home series against the SAIT Trojans and the Kings & Queens Volleyball squads will compete against the Olds College Broncos in two matches.

    Here is a summary of what is happening this week in RDC Athletics.

    Queens Hockey | Friday, Jan. 11 | 7:00 p.m. | Gary W. Harris Canada Games Centre

    The third place RDC Queens (5-6-1-0) will take on the second seed MacEwan University Griffins (10-3-1-0). Kaely McMurtry, a Bachelor of Education Middle School student, leads the league with seven goals.

    On their home ice, the RDC Kings will battle the NAIT Ooks in a rematch. After RDC’s 22 points in the standings, NAIT is next with 20 so this weekend series will shape up to be an important one.

    Even though the Kings have depth and balanced scoring, Chase Thudium is tied for the league lead with 11 goals. The Business Administration General student is even with Lynnden Pastachak for the most points (19) on the RDC Kings.

    The Red Deer College Kings have played the NAIT Ooks extremely tough the past few seasons. In the opening weekend this year, the Kings handed the Ooks a 6-2 loss at the Gary W. Harris Canada Games Centre on October 5. Then 24 hours later, the RDC Kings defeated NAIT 3-2 in Edmonton. Over the two games, Kings’ defenceman Dylan Baer led the way for both teams with one goal and two assists.

    In the second half of the home-and-home series, the Kings will compete against the Trojans in Calgary.

    Queens Volleyball | Saturday, Jan. 12 | 6:00 p.m. | Gary W. Harris Canada Games Centre

    The third place Red Deer College Queens (8-6) will entertain the Olds College Broncos (1-13) at home. Libero Kaylee Domoney has been outstanding defensively, helping the Queens quickly transition to offence. Her 4.56 digs per set ranks the Business Administration Human Resources student second in ACAC Women’s Volleyball.

    Queens Volleyball | Sunday, Jan. 13 | 6:00 p.m. | Olds College

    In a weekend rematch, the Queens will play a rare Sunday match in Olds.
