As the weather gets colder, it is time to remember that not all sports are played with a ball.

Yes, it is time to drop the puck on Sun Prairie Cardinals hockey!

The Sun Prairie Media Center is planning video coverage of a slate of home games happening at the Sun Prairie Ice Arena.

Announcing duties will be handled by Dan Corcoran, who has been working with the Sun Prairie Media Center for several weeks now and has quickly become a go-to presence for sports production, direction, and announcing.

Due to conflicts with basketball coverage, hockey coverage will often air on the KIDS-4 channel, which is available on Charter Spectrum on channel 984 as well as TDS channels 14 and 1014. KIDS-4 is also streamed live on the SPMC’s Roku and Apple TV channels, the sunprariemediacenter.com website, and the SPMC mobile app.

Here are the games SPMC is planning to cover (schedule subject to change). All games scheduled to start at 7 PM except when noted:

  • Tuesday, November 23. Vs. Beloit Memorial. Scheduled for KIDS-4.
  • Thursday, December 2. Vs. Madison East/La Follette. Scheduled for KIDS-4.
  • Tuesday, December 21. Vs. Arrowhead. Scheduled for KIDS-4.
  • Tuesday, January 4. Vs. Madison West. Scheduled for KIDS-4.
  • Tuesday, January 18. Vs. Sauk Prairie. Scheduled for KIDS-4.
  • Thursday, January 20. Vs. Middleton. Coverage TBA.
  • Tuesday, January 25. Vs. Madison Memorial. Scheduled for KIDS-4.
  • Tuesday, February 1. Vs. Janesville (7:30 PM). Coverage TBA.
  • Thursday, February 3. Vs. Verona. Scheduled for KIDS-4.

The SPMC is still seeking business sponsors and volunteers to help with the production of sports programming. For anyone interested, please contact Jeff Robbins at jrobbins@cityofsunprairie.com or at 608-235-9383.
