Ice Rink

At the Clubhouse we are able to operate and maintain our own ice rink during the months between October and March. We offer programs including beginner skate lessons to hockey leagues.

Learn to Skate Clinics

Clinics are for beginners and advanced skaters and are taught by skating professionals and assisted by Boys & Girls Club staff. Members will learn how to glide forward and backwards, swizzles, turns, snow plow stops and crossovers.

Clinics begin the week of October 24 and run until December 19 for the first session.
