The Brewer Oval Volunteer Sign-Up sheet is now available. Click on the button below.
The volunteer schedule is organized as weekly pages (Monday-Sunday) with one and two-hour timeslot sign-ups. Many hands make light work, so we'd appreciate that you sign up, even if you can only volunteer for one hour.
During the oval season, we will be sending out frequent reminders to make sure we have sufficient volunteer coverage. Please check the schedule often, and if you have an hour or two (or more!) to spare, please sign up!
If you have specific questions, please email to firstname.lastname@example.org
ICE TIME: Mon/Tue/Wed/Thur evenings in January&February - weather permitting
Follow our Brewer Oval Facebook Group for the latest reports on ice conditions, etc.
The Brewer Skate Park is a City of Ottawa facility; as such it is available to all. Those interested in getting a good workout on their skates, come and enjoy the best maintained large ice surface in the area. Skaters are welcome to use hockey and figure skates, though playing hockey and skating figures are not allowed on the ice in order to protect the ice surface.
When using the oval, please use the parking lot to the west of the arena (you will need to come in off Bronson). Some cars have been parked at the entrance (between the trailer and east of the Brewer Arena) where the tractor/blower/brusher parks as well as where the Zamboni dumps its snow. These cars block the pathway for the tractor that maintains the oval and rinks and risk being ticketed/towed away in future. Please park in the arena parking lot - the short walk can be your warm up!
Please note: For competitive and club events, the oval will be unavailable to the public on the following dates/times:
- Mon/Tue/Wed/Thu in January and February - 6:00pm - 9:00pm (Speed Skaters and Long Blades only)
- January 13 and 14 2018 (Ontario Long Track Provincial Championship)
- January 15, 2018 (OSSA Long Track Camp)
