As the leaves have started to fall and the current chill is in the air, it’s time to start thinking about Winter Sports! We are going to discuss one activity that can be done at the convenience of your home with family and friends:

Skating and Playing Hockey in your Outdoor/Backyard rink!

There are many benefits of having your own custom backyard ice rink:


Ice skating helps with stability, control, and strength for children of all ages. It also improves joint flexibility, builds leg muscles, helps with weight management, and increases endurance. Being active also reduces stress levels which helps improve your mood.  A backyard rink is a great way to decrease screen time and increase exercise time!.


There isn’t a lot of available ice time in local ice rinks for players to work on their individual skills. A backyard ice rink will allow each player time to practice important skills like skating, stickhandling, passing and shooting.


Skating and playing games with family and friends in a fun atmosphere will create memories that will last a lifetime. These memories can be created year after year with your own backyard ice rink.


In a past USA Hockey study, a Youth Hockey Player possessed the puck for an average time of 1 minute and 6 seconds per game.  A backyard ice rink is going to allow the player to significantly increase their puck possession time which is key to player development.
