Hello from the La Jolla Ice Town Team
It's been a great summer so far and it just keeps getting better.
We're about to start the second phase of our renovations. We're looking forward to giving our rink a much needed face lift. This phase of renovations will include a new rental skate counter, offices and what we're most excited about, a NEW PRO SHOP!!! We are also incorporating plasma screens throughout the facility to keep you updated with current rink information as well as piping in hockey games, figure skating events and the Winter Olympics!!!
Sign ups for the fall season are coming soon. Discounts will be available for early sign ups. We looking forward to having competitive prices and a well organized season. Goalies are always wanted. Most of our Friday night Metro practices will have a Goalie coach on hand. If you are thinking about giving this very important position a try and you want that personal attention of a dedicated goalie coach give me a call 858-452-9110 ext. 4 or email me firstname.lastname@example.org!
We know it's important to have a professional coaching staff leading our kids in the game they love. We know you can see how La Jolla Ice Town is certainly moving in a fantastic direction with our coaching staff!! The Metro Teams are looking strong. We're definately giving the other rinks a run for their money. The kids are playing their hearts out and having a great time.
