Please be advised that due to Covid restrictions, the building (lace up area and washrooms) are closed until further notice. We would respectfully request that all visitors follow Alberta Health Services guidelines in order to protect our fellow community members. Also, donations towards upkeep and maintenance and future use and enjoyment are always gratefully accepted. If you wish, please send donations to Kingman Recreation Association c/o PO Box 76, Kingman, AB T0B 2M0 or slip a cheque or cash in an envelope under the post office door with reference to the KRA.

Time to get on that lawnmower again and help keep the Kingman Hall area looking neat and groomed! We are looking for one family a week to cut the grass and do the trimming around the arena. It would take 2 people about 3 hours. The KRA will provide the equipment and fuel - you provide the people power! Please contact Adele at 780 662-4867 if you would like to take a week. The mowing is usually done (weather dependant) on Thursdays in order to have it completed by the weekend.
Unfortunately due to the warm weather conditions this past week, the rink has deteriorated to the point where kids' Tuesday night pond hockey is unable to continue. Also, the rink will not be cleared off if snow falls so if there is snowfall, any users will be responsible to clear off the snow. Thank you all for a fun (if not short) rink season! Please remember to watch this page for notices regarding updates for the rink and the arena in the spring!
Learn how to two-step just in time for all those summer weddings! The Kingman Recreation Association is pleased to be able to offer a 4 week beginner two-step class at Kingman Hall on Thursdays evenings from 7:00-8:30. The cost is $20 per couple for the entire 4 week session. This class is being graciously subsidized by a grant from Camrose County. Please contact Adele at 780 662-4867 with questions or to register. Space is limited. Classes to start Thursday, February 27 and run every two weeks until April 9.
Due to the snowfall today, the rink is covered and pond hockey will not be running this evening. Unless further notified, we will continue next Tuesday. Have a great evening all!
The sounds of a puck ricocheting off the boards, kids laughing and shouting, parents yelling encouragement, skates scraping against the ice..........Kingman vs. Camrose in a showdown!
The pond hockey kids from Camrose took on the pond hockey kids from Kingman on Tuesday, February 4.
Thank you to Camrose Fun Hockey for coming out and providing pictures. Thanks to all the parents and coaches for coming out to help make such a fun evening happen. Let's do it again soon!

Saturday, December 15th the Kingman Recreation Association grandly and officially celebrated Kingman's newest achievement, the Kingman Rink of Dreams. Starting three years ago from a humble idea to get kids in the community back on the ice to now a community supported multi season facility. The facility features an NHL regulation rink and beautiful building with change rooms, washrooms, garage and kitchen. It is also home to our post office. The event celebrated the many sponsors and volunteers that supported building the rink. Hot dogs, hot chocolate and cake were served to all the guests in attendance. A presentation by junior figure skaters and an Augustana Choir festive quintet were enjoyed. The kids and adults alike got on the ice for a fun game of shinny, balloons taped to their helmets. Once the balloon shinny was finished, folks got on the ice for a social skate. A fabulous day for all. Thank you to our committee organizers of the event and to all of our many volunteers and sponsors. A wonderful gift for Christmas, see you on the ice!
What a day! The lutefisk supper was a smashing success. We served 85 folks at the noon seating and 352 at the evening meal. That's a total of 436 lutefisk lovin' folks! Thanks for supporting our community hall! A HUGE thank you goes to all of our 100 wonderful volunteers! Thank you for making pies, for making meatballs, for picking up lutefisk, for cutting lutefisk, for cooking lutefisk, for serving lutefisk, for clearing and cleaning up lutefisk and finally thank you for keeping our extended community's longstanding love affair with lutefisk going! Lutefisk volunteers we thank you!
