I think this was taken at a "road hockey" game, at the tennis courts on the Gorsebrook School grounds in Halifax. And I'm pretty sure that pin he is wearing says "go fly a kite".
Gorsebrook was also known for its sledding. When the snow fell in sufficient amounts, avid sledders would head for the steep hill with its abrupt flattening out at the bottom end; though the tapering left plenty of room for one's velocity to slow before hitting anything, the hill often became a sheet of ice as the snow compacted from the pressure of many feet and bodies. There was usually a strong possibility of hitting a smooth bump and flying off one's sled.
