Road hockey time with Royals

Langford Kal Tire hosts skills training and game for kids

Check out the parking lot at Langford’s Kal Tire this Sunday (Oct. 26) for a chance to play some road hockey with the big boys.

Several players and one coach from the Victoria Royals will be on hand to help kids hone their hockey skills.

“They’re going to teach skills for the first hour and then set up a road hockey game after,” said Brent Spruston of Kal Tire, who’s organizing the event.

The tire shop is also holding a by-donation barbecue, with proceeds going to West Shore minor hockey.

Every donation earns an entry into a draw to win a variety of prizes, including tickets to Victoria Royals and Vancouver Canucks games, as well as a hockey net and other goodies.

The event runs from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at 2420 Millstream Rd.

For more information about the event, call Spruston at 250-391-6132.
