News and Announcements
Thank you to Sooke News for recognizing that Pearkes is in need of a third rink:
“Adding a rink in Greater Victoria is an ongoing discussion that goes back to the opening of the arena at George Pearkes in 1968. Saanich later added the second rink to Pearkes but most interestingly, there were plans for a third ice pad that’s never happened, noted new Saanich Mayor Fred Haynes.
Pearkes’ original Gold rink is actually 10 years beyond its estimated life of 40 years and is pegged for a $2- to $4-million rebuild within five years. Pearkes is also being studied in Saanich’s current market analysis of its recreation centres and if needed, Haynes said he will support the addition of a third ice rink, which was in the original plans."

SMHA Midget C5 team won gold in Oceanside’s Midget Remembrance Day Weekend Tournament. After 4 close games vs. Peninsula, Powell River, Comox and Vancouver, Saanich C5 finished round robin play in first place after a 3-way tie was broken by penalty minutes. C5 finished tournament play with a 4-3 win over Semiahmoo. Great fun was had by all the C5 guys (and five C5 girls!).
Congratulations to the SMHA Midget T1 Team, the 2018 Greater Victoria Midget Classic Champions, who took their game against the Chilliwack Bruins to sudden-death overtime and eventually a shootout victory.
SMHA netminder, Jacob Haydar, who stole the show with the “Game of the Tournament”, won the tournament MVP
The smiles say it all – way to go team!
