The Alberta Junior Hockey League 

The Alberta Junior Hockey League Activities of the Olds Grizzlys AJHL organization may look different from that of other activities. Effective March 12, the AJHL is regulated under an exemption order by the Chief Medical Officer of Health. The AJHL must continue to promote appropriate hygiene, physical distancing, and abide by other measures identified by public health authorities to protect participants and the public from further transmission of COVID-19. The AJHL-related activity is distinct from recreational play/leagues and minor sports because they are expected to have the operational and financial sophistication required to ensure enhanced health screening of players, cohort management, private COVID testing, and other requirements.


The Sportsplex features an Arena with two ice surfaces and a six sheet Curling facility.

  • Main ice surface (200' x 85') is used from approximately April to July for Lacrosse and from mid-August to March for ice rentals.
  • Auxiliary ice surface (180' x 85') is used from April to September for non-ice functions and from October to May for ice rentals.
  • Upstairs Concourse is also available for rentals, shows, meetings, and other functions. (Suspended due to COVID-19)
  • Viewing areas for both ice surfaces are wheel-chair accessible.
  • The Olds Curling Club operates the curling facility.
