The Swift Current IceBreakers are hoping to rebound to their glory days this season.

The team was only a week away from challenging for the Western Canadian Championships when the COVID-19 pandemic shut down sports in general.

Swift Current had 37 players rostered in 2020 when play was halted, a figure they're aspiring to return to.

Darwin Gooding, an assistant coach for the IceBreakers, said registration numbers currently have the club teetering on brink of existence for this upcoming campaign.

"We're really wanting to do a big push to get some kids to come out and try it out and hopefully get our registration numbers up so that we can have a team this year," he said.

Last season the club only had seven players - a few of them returnees from the 2020 club.

The team will be hosting a free tryout and introductory to the sport on Sunday night at the InnovationPlex from 7-8 p.m. to try and help recruit.

"We're just looking to get as many kids out as possible to come to give it a try this Sunday," he said.

Both disabled and able-body kids aged six to 15 are eligible to play for the IceBreakers. They practice weekly at S3 Arenas from 5:45 p.m. to 6:45 p.m. beginning on October 17 and through to March.

Anybody planning on attending Sunday night is asked to bring a helmet and gloves (can be hockey gloves or winter gloves).
