Children will work on improving their skating, learning one-foot pushes and glides, backward swizzles, and snowplow stops, while beginning stick handling and shooting. Upon graduation, skaters will be given a white bracelet, signifying successful completion of Hockey 1.

Hockey 2
Children will be introduced to more advanced hockey drills and stick and puck handling techniques, as well as ongoing work on skating skills, such as crossovers and inside and outside edges. Upon graduation, they’ll earn a yellow bracelet, and move up to Hockey 3.

Where NYC comes to skate!

Due to inclement weather conditions, we will be closed on Saturday, 1/29/2022. Please continue to check our website for updates.

Please be advised that we will be performing a scheduled system upgrade Thursday, September 30th, 2021 at 08:00 PM EDT which will cause a disruption lasting a few hours.
All logged-on users will have their session terminated by the upgrade and will need to log on with your email address on file and click "forgot your password?" to get started.

As this Sunday's Five-Boro Bike Tour will probably disrupt your travel to the rink, please plan ahead as there will be no make-ups due to lateness, missed classes, or practice. Thanks for your understanding

This Sunday, 11/7 clocks fall back at 2:00 am, ending Daylight Savings Time. Also, we are issuing a traffic alert for the NYC Marathon 2021. Please allow extra travel time getting to the rink

The rink is closed from Tuesday, 7/13 7pm to Wednesday, 7/14 12pm because the DEP needs to shut off the water supply in the area. Stay tuned for Wednesday, 7/14 afternoon program.
