What is Pond Hockey? 
Pond Hockey is high speed, high scoring, end-to-end hockey action without the pressure of the regular season scores, standings and format! It’s a chance for players to handle the puck, get creative, and play like they’re out back on a pond. And the best part is while the kids are having fun, they’re focusing on skating, stickhandling, passing, shooting and backchecking/forechecking.    

All games will be available live and on demand through Live Barn.

Please note: All participants skate at their own risk.
