The minor hockey associations in Grande Prairie and Clairmont will be getting a brand new set of ice dividers this fall. The foam dividers split the ice into smaller sections to help players six years and younger develop their skills and stay safe.
They normally cost around $3,000, but will be free thanks to a grant from Pembina Pipelines. The company originally partnered with Hockey Alberta to provide 30 sets, but were overwhelmed by almost 60 applications so the grant was doubled.
Rinks in Manning and Rycroft will also received sets, which are scheduled to be delivered in October.
