MINI ICE RINK

 Designed to support and enhance training which helps develop the athlete’s skills to become better skaters and stronger players.  The ice pad is conducive to close skater-coach proximity which allows coaches to be closer to you and your development. 

We use our ice pad for training development and also for our public sessions.

SYNTHETIC ICE PAD

Skating on Synthetic ice requires about 10% more effort than skating on real ice.  When an athlete is training on the synthetic ice they adapt to using extra energy required for power, technique, and movement, this helps you to become a stronger skater.  Once individuals develop the strength on the synthetic ice they can move as if they are on the real ice.  This surface can be used by figure skaters and hockey players for all types of training.  It is just like skating on ice, except there is about 30% more resistance.

Our synthetic ice is the perfect alternative to complement the studio ice rink. Our Glice surface is made with the best material in the business giving you a second to none real ice feel.
