The Village owns and operates the Drylands Arena which has one ice sheet and is home to the Thompson Cariboo Minor Hockey Association. Generally the arena season begins in October and ends in March. The arena has bleachers equipped with overhead heaters, a concession, washroom facilities, a skate sharpening facility, dressing rooms, sound system, and a 16' x 12' stage for dry floor usage. In the summer months the arena is host to dry floor events such as our annual Fall Fair, Annual Rodeo Dance and music venues.
During the hockey season, why not come out and support our Minor Hockey Association and players during a game, their schedule is on their website.
Arena COVID-19 Restrictions
Drylands Arena is closed for all public use with the exception of Minor Hockey. If the COVID-19 situation changes public access will be reassessed.
The Village of Ashcroft recognizes that this is not ideal; however, we must continue to keep the safety of facility users and staff as the guiding principle. We are all looking forward to brighter days when things return to the "old" normal.
Thank you for your understanding and patience.

Ashcroft Curling Club
Located immediately adjacent to the Drylands Arena, the Curling Club building is owned by the Village of Ashcroft, but is operated by the Ashcroft and District Curling Club. The Ashcroft & District Curling Club has four sheets of ice. Curling begins in mid-October and continues through early March. The curling club offers adult league curling, senior league curling and junior league curling. The curling club is a very friendly organization and always welcomes new members to the sport.
Throughout its season, the curling club plays host to many different fun-filled bonspiels and spectators can enjoy watching the sport from the upstairs licensed lounge or downstairs at the ice level. There is a concession that is operated during the bonspiels. The curling club is located at 610 - 7th Street.
