Arenas & Skating


There are two ice arenas attached to the Thompson Regional Community Centre, the CA Nesbitt Arena and the Gordon Beard Arena.

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

The facility can be rented year-round for ceremonies, concerts, and other events year round, and for ice skating during the ice season. The City also hosts regular public skates and parents 'n' tot skates, end of August to the end of April for groups of all sizes.

The Gordon Beard is a smaller arena with modest seating, ideal for recreational leagues, practices, and private rentals. The ice is usually in place from the end of August to the end of April.
