Hockey revamped

 

Walkey Hockey is a go.

The eight teams for this new no-running/jogging, non-contact street hockey league for people 50 and older starts play April 5 at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints lot.

There are eight teams set up, and there is still room for about eight more players, said organizer Murray Cameron.

The league runs six weeks and the cost is $40, which covers refs and nibblies. Anyone 90 and older gets to play for free.

Cameron said there won’t be goaltenders, and the nets will be smaller.

This street hockey with a twist league allows people some competition and exercise without hits to the body and jarring of the joints.

“It’s such a simple idea,” the 65-year-old commented.

He’s driven to start the league by a concern with the number of overweight people today.

Anyone interested in playing can contact Cameron at moocat@shaw.ca or at 778-241-7226. The only equipment people need to bring is a regular hockey stick.

“You can get it at any flea market or thrift store,” he said.

The games will be played in the rear lot of the Mormon Temple at 20030 82nd Ave.
