Top 5 Backyard Ice Rink games everyone can enjoy

As we are coming upon the Holiday Season we thought it would be a good time to list our top 5 Fun games that can be played with friends and family on your 360 Backyard Ice Rink!

1. Freeze tag

Once a player is tagged by the designated tagger he or she has to freeze in place. To get unfrozen and back into the game they have to get tagged by someone else in the game who is not the tagger. If all players end up frozen then the tagger wins and a new tagger is chosen. Rotate taggers throughout the game..

2. Skate Chain

Players connect by holding the player in front of them on their waist. Once the Chain is formed the first person in the chain can skate any pathway he or she chooses for 1 minute. Rotate the leader of the chain so everyone gets a chance.

3. Follow the Leader

Designate 1 player as the leader. He or She gets to skate any pathway they want. The rest of the group has to follow him/her. After 1 minute rotate a new leader in so everyone gets the chance to be the leader.

4. Relay Races

Divide the group into 2 or 3 equal teams. A couple of variations for the races:
1. Forwards
2. Forwards Down and Backwards back
3. Skates have to stay on the ice (Good work on your edges)
4. Stickhandling a puck down and back
5. Stickhandle a puck down and make a pass back
6. Broomball 

This is for the group that is above 8 years old and wants some competition! No skates needed. Players play the same rules as Hockey except use an oversize foam ball and brooms as sticks. Best played 4 on 4 with no goalies but different modifications can be made.

For Safety reason players should have a helmet on for all of the games listed above
