This is my first post of a sports place. Skatetown in Roseville is the spot for hockey! It’s conveniently located right off highway 80 on the Riverside off ramp. Anything hockey, they hook it up. At Skatetown they have two NHL size rinks, and they keep the ice in fantastic condition!
They have stick time, which is practice, 6:15AM-8:15AM Monday-Friday. I go to stick time three days a week at least. It’s $12 per hour. They offer stick time at other hours, but those are always changing, contact them to get a full schedule. They also have hockey classes, one session a week, that lasts a few months. If you have a busy life, just go for the private lessons and get on the ice with an expert whenever it fits your schedule.
For actual games, they have drop-in and multiple levels of leagues. Drop-in is real fun. Just sign up the week of, preferably a couple days before, and bring a light and dark jersey. Drop-in runs 12:15PM-1:45PM Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday, and 7:15AM-8:45AM on Saturdays. They also have drop-in at other times, but these days are the most consistent. The next league starts in September. The cool thing is you can join with a team by putting one together, meeting players at stick time, or get put on the free agent list. I can’t wait for the next league to start up!
Also, Skatetown has a great pro shop. They offer great brands such as Bauer, Easton, Reebok, and are soon going to start carrying Graf skates. Everything you need is here, protective gear, skates, sticks, and accessories. Oh, and just a heads up, if you’re playing hockey at all, you have to be fully geared up! They also offer lots of figure skating activities and gear, but I would contact the rink for more details.
Come check it out, and as Chaz Michael Michaels says, “Lets kick some ICE!”
