A Lot of Hockey Left to be Played!

Inside Garden City is happy to have Andrew Karen back with an update on Community Park’s roller hockey program and the new rink. This is truly a great asset to our town and residents should be sure to take advantage of it! 



A lot of hockey left to be played!!!!

The Garden City Recreation & Parks Department roller hockey program is in full swing this spring. From beginner clinics for kindergarten and first grade, to leagues for 2nd & 3rd graders, 4th & 5th graders, 6th through 8th graders and a pick up game program for the ‘big kids’ (AKA adults ages 30 & over.) The program offers something for all!

With a brand new state of the art roller rink, the program and the sport continue to grow right here in our very own backyard. The new roller rink was designed to ensure the people of GC received the best rink possible. During the design process, we took notice of how the sun sets and positioned the rink so that when playing on it, you would not have the sun in your eyes (especially the goalies). Also, many people have commented that the skating surface is the smoothest they have ever skated on. Another interesting fact about the rink is that the facility is equipped with a full sound system to allow us to play music and make announcements during special events, like the championship games.

The adult pick up game program is open to any village resident ages 30 & above. Experience doesn’t matter and over the years we had a nice mix of guys who all call the program a great way to conclude the weekend (since the games are on Sunday night) with their fellow GC neighbors.

The department currently offers two seasons (one in the spring & one in the fall) on Friday & Sundays. 

The spring season begins in early April and concludes in early June. The fall season begins right after Labor Day and concludes right before Thanksgiving.
     
If you are interested in learning more about our various programs or just looking to hang out and enjoy good old sports activities from right here in GC, come down to the roller rink in Community Park because there is a lot of hockey left to be played!


Open Rink Hours For GC Residents:

Sunday 10am-1pm, Monday-Thursday 3pm-dark, Friday- closed for programs, Saturday 10am-dark. Helmets required.
