Kings and Queens Set For On-Ice Battles This Weekend
RDC Curling | Feb. 24-26 | ACAC Curling Championship | Vermilion Curling Club
Lakeland College will be hosting the championship in Vermilion. The Red Deer College Men’s Curling team will enter the event as the top team in their division. The RDC women’s and mixed teams will also be competing for ACAC gold.
Queens Hockey | Friday, Feb. 24 | 7:00 p.m. | GMU
The Red Deer College Queens finished 3rd (31 points) in ACAC Women’s Hockey during the regular season and will face the 2nd place MacEwan University Griffins (32 points) in the best of 3 semi-final series. The Queens finished the regular season with the 2nd most potent offence and 2nd best defence in women’s hockey. The Griffins scored the 3rd most goals but allowed the fewest in the league. During the regular season, the RDC Queens won 4-of-6 meetings between the 2 squads. A pair of wins came at the ENMAX Centrium and 2 victories were earned in Edmonton so the Queens are very comfortable opening the playoffs on the road.
Kings Hockey | Friday, Feb. 24 | 8:15 p.m. | Concordia University
In Edmonton, the Kings face-off against the Concordia University Thunder in a regular season matchup. Both teams have qualified for the playoffs. In the ACAC Men’s Hockey standings, the Kings sit in 5th spot with 26 points. The Thunder occupy 6th spot and have 17 points.

Access to Dawe Centre pool and community centre affected by expansion project – Details
Limited access to G.H. Dawe Community Centre this summer due to construction
As announced yesterday, City recreation centres are opening fully to the public as of July 1. With construction underway at the G.H. Dawe Community Centre, only limited services and areas will be available.
Here’s what you need to know:
- Starting July 2, fitness and gym areas will open from 10 a.m. – 8 p.m., daily. In July, summer day camps that normally operate from the Dawe will operate from other facilities.
- The pool will remain closed until September.
- To accommodate interior heating and ventilation construction, the facility will fully close from July 26 to August 31. Some registered preschool and summer camp programming may proceed, but no rental or general admission options will be available.
- On September 1, we anticipate the pool will be open, but some other amenities, like the gym, may not be available. More information will be provided as construction progresses.
- Playing surfaces in the arena will not be available until construction is complete, which is expected to be early 2023.
We are currently offering a discounted monthly Value Pass for $27 for adults ($24.50 for seniors; $21.90 for students; $19.30 for youth; $14.20 for children, and $60.50 for a family. It provides unlimited access to all facilities. As of August the Value Pass will only provide access to the Recreation Centre and Michener Aquatic Centre; however, access to the Dawe will be included in the Value pass until the pool, gym and fitness areas are open.
About the G.H. Dawe Community Centre Project
Work is underway now on the G.H. Dawe Community Centre Project and some exciting changes are in store. We expect to welcome visitors to the transformed space in early 2023. Here’s just some of what you can expect:
- Two NHL standard playing surfaces
- Expanded fitness areas, including a running track
- Outdoor spray park with washroom facilities
- Improved accessibility
- Additional north entrance + site access from 67 Street
- Additional parking
During construction, there will be some changes and impacts to existing amenities and programs, and we’ll do you best to share this information in advance. Thanks for your patience as we complete this work.
