Pond Hockey

In the News

Pond hockey is a blast! Games are short and manageable for beginners, while also fast paced and challenging for seasoned veterans. Pond hockey is played with a sponge puck and very small goals, without a goalie, so its not as intimidating as regular hockey. Pickup style games are 3v3 or 4v4 and teams are split up on-site. Helmets, gloves, or pads are not required, but wear whatever you are comfortable with. We have sessions for kids, students, and adults. No experience is necessary, and this is a great way to get out on the ice for some friendly competition or just to try out the game of hockey. Check out facebook for our updated Pond Hockey schedule. If you have questions, call the Skate Lodge 740-275-8466.
