A Close Knit Community
It is a cold, wintery night in Indus. The smell of coffee, food and excitement fill the air. On the ice, the Indus Pee Wee team is practicing in Arena II, while the Bill Heron arena is filled with fans as the Indus Lightning are playing a dynamic ringette game against Airdrie.
But all the action is not just on the ice.
In the new meeting room, a local youth group is holding a workshop on career options. Dozens of men and women are using the weight room and the track is filled with a local seniors walking group. This is just a typical night at the Indus Recreation Centre. The vision of the new Indus Recreation Centre is:
A gathering place to meet the growing needs of the county and community.
A New Facility: Imagine it Now!
Indus is a hamlet found east of the City of Calgary, which serves the citizens and communities of southeast Rocky View. Demand for sports and community programming has tripled in the past ten years with growth of the nearby community of Langdon and the rural area surrounding Indus.
Our area youth programs are literally bursting at the seams. Most of the minor hockey programs share ice times, forcing players to practice on only half the ice. Our growing ringette program is forced to obtain ice in other communities as far as 30 minutes away. Growth in adult sports has come to a halt, as we are unable to support any new programs.
