Clearly there is truth to the rumour of a population explosion in Saugeen Shores. Look no further on this than at the Plex on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays as children’s ball hockey is racing ahead in popularity with 260 registrants ages 3 to 12 as of May 15.

Organizer Jeff Carr said that the first hour of Tuesday nights, 5 p.m. to 6 p.m., are for 3 and 4 year olds, followed by followed by the 5 and 6 year olds until 7 p.m. Thursdays from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. are for Novice ages 8 and 9 and Friday’s three hour time slot is reserved for the 11 and 12 year old Peewees.

Carr said “registration has exceeded my expectations,” and believes there are a few spaces remaining in some of the age groups. He expressed his thanks to Matt Mulholland and Melissa Carr of KNK Lawn Care for their uniform sponsorship.
