Arenas & Skating


There are two arenas in the Thompson Regional Community Centre - the C.A. Nesbitt Arena and the Gordon Beard Arena.

The C.A. Nesbitt arena is the City's larger arena, home of the Norman Northstars and the Norman Wolves.

The facility can be rented year-round for ceremonies, concerts, and other events, and for ice skating during the ice season. The City also hosts regular public skates starting in October.

The Gordon Beard is a smaller arena with modest seating, ideal for recreational leagues, practices, and private rentals. 

To book ice time, call 204-677-7952 or email!
