Submitted. The very popular HEAT IN THE STREET ball hockey series returns to Abbotsford for it’s 3rd season on July 11 at Eugene Reimer Middle School.
The principal objective of the Heat in the Street program is to make better connections between Abbotsford’s emergency responders and the neighborhoods they serve while promoting the many positive benefits of sports. This event is staffed mostly by volunteers and has been growing in popularity since it’s inception in 2011.
The concept behind the hockey games is that kids play shoulder to shoulder with firefighters, police officers and paramedics in a fun, non competitive environment. Two games are run concurrently, one for kids 12 and under and one for teens. All the equipment is provided.
Besides the hockey games, other activities will include games for children, prizes, tours of emergency vehicles and other fun activities. Special surprise guests will be on hand and snacks will be provided by local sponsors.
Three games will be held this summer with the hope that families from the nearby neighborhoods will walk to the sites and enjoy the evening. Event details are as follows:
Game 1 July 11, 7 – 9 pm Eugene Reimer School, 3433 Firhill Dr.
Game 2 August 1, 7 – 9 pm Mouat Secondary, 32355 Mouat Dr.
Game 3 August 22 7 – 9 pm Stenerson Elementary, 3060 Old Clayburn Rd
