SMHA Ice Rentals
Beginning November 1, 2014, please contact Tracey Brown, Office Administrator
for the SMHA, if you are interested in extra practice ice. Any extra ice available will be sold at a price of $185.00 per hour to SMHA teams only.
Why does SMHA sometimes have extra ice available for sale?
SMHA does its best each spring / summer to gather as much ice as possible from our ice suppliers - the City of Saskatoon (ACT, Archibald, Cosmo, Kinsmen and Lions), Canlan IceSports (Jemini and Agritwins), Harold Latrace and Schroh Arena. This ice is then allocated to the SMHA programs - Initiation through Midget in all levels in minor and female hockey. There will be bits and pieces of ice open during the season that fall on the fringes of the program allocations. These extra ice times will be allocated for sale to SMHA teams on a first-come-first-served basis. Sometimes the extra ice times get used for make-up games that were cancelled due to unforeseen issues such as ice issues, power failures, weather cancellations, etc.
There is also extra ice purposely held in March for use by SMHA reps in SHA provincial playoff games as well as for league playoffs for SMHA teams that do not play in SMHA leagues but in provincial leagues -Bantam AA Tier 1 in minor, Female Bantam A, Female Bantam AA, Female Midget A and Female Midget AA. All of these games are scheduled by the teams so there is no way of knowing when the games will need to be played. Therefore, there is additional ice available for sale for the ice times not used for these playoff and provincial games.
The SMHA charges SMHA teams a reduced rate for this ice. SMHA must pay for this ice to the suppliers above - this is why there is a charge for the extra ice that is put out to our teams.
