PROGRAMS


Lacrosse
Melfort Lacrosse practice and play their games at the Northern Lights Palace.  This organization has teams in every age division and plays in the Prince Albert Minor Box Lacrosse Association league.  Their season begins in May and finishes at the end of June.

Kinette Family Skate
During the winter season, families and individuals can enjoy some leisure skating by taking in the Kinette Family Skate.  There is no cost for this skating as it is covered by a grant from the Saskatchewan Lotteries Trust Fund for Sport, Culture & Recreation.  This normally runs on Monday, Wednesday and Fridays from 10:00 am - 11:30 am, plus weekend public skating when available.  These times are subject to change, so please refer to the weekly schedule.

Walking Program
The Palace concourse is used by many people during the winter months for walking, allowing them to continue to stay fit, away from the cold and the snow.  This program is free to the public and runs from October to March, Monday to Friday, from 8:00 am to 3:00 pm.
