The RDC Men’s Curling team came into Friday as the top male squad (4-1) and wanted to maintain that positive momentum on an important 3rd day at the Canadian Collegiate Athletic Association (CCAA) Curling National Championships at the Rose City Curling Club.
The Red Deer College women’s team needed a strong outing to grab a playoff spot in Camrose on Saturday. Entering today, RDC, Niagara and Lakeland had the same record (2-3) and Concordia (3-2) was within striking distance in the women’s division. Fanshawe held a 5-0 record and NAIT sat in 2nd spot at 4-1. With several options for playoff matchups, it came down to who would execute on the ice.
Both teams got off to a strong start. At 9:00 a.m., the Kings continued to roll and won 6-4 over the Ooks. On sheet 5, the RDC Queens picked up a crucial win and defeated the host U of A Augustana Vikings 9-5.
At 2:00 p.m., the RDC men picked up their 6th win as they defeated Mohawk 6-4 to seal top spot heading into Saturday’s playoffs. The Red Deer College Women exploded for 10 points and won 10-4 over the Lakeland Rustlers to earn a playoff berth.
The top seeded RDC Kings will face the 4th place Mohawk Mountaineers in semi-final action at 9:30 a.m. on Saturday. The 2nd place Fanshawe Falcons will compete against the 3rd ranked Humber Hawks in the other men’s semi-final matchup. The 4th place Red Deer College Queens will hit the ice against the 1st place Fanshawe Falcons in 1 of the women’s semi-finals. The 2nd place Concordia Thunder will play the 3rd ranked women’s team, the NAIT Ooks, in the other semi-final draw.

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.
