Ice Land Skating Center opened its doors in the early 1990s and has been providing the community with a place to enjoy ice related competitive sports and recreational activities for many years. Ice Land's current owners purchased the facility and business in early 2010 and are firmly committed to the support and advancement of youth athletic programs in the region.
It is the overall goal to make Ice Land the premier ice skating facility in the area with its mission to provide disciplined, competitive, and fun hockey and skating programs to teach and to nurture the potential budding hockey and figure skating stars of the future. Additionally, the owners want to provide a venue to promote fun and physical activities for both adults and children out on the ice with a variety of in-house leagues, clinics, and open skating for all to enjoy.
An ambitious facility improvement program this year included 1) the resurfacing of the ice and board repairs in Rink B; 2) interior painting of ceiling beams and locker rooms in both rink areas; 3) the replacement of scoreboards and locker room heaters; 4) the resurfacing of locker room and bathroom floors; 5) parking lot improvements including resealing, striping, and the addition of speed bumps for child safety; 6) the replacement of damaged bleachers; and 7) the addition of two (2) electric zambonis, a new dehumidifier in Rink A, and the addition of hundreds of pairs of rental skates. And don't forget about our new website launched in late 2010- a new and exciting way to keep informed about Ice Land activities and Mercer Chief team information and schedules.
Plans for the future include a remodeled pro shop, snack bar, and entrance lobby; the addition of an exercise room with state of the art equipment, a new roof and gutters over the front lobby area, expansion of existing hockey and skating programs, and new pro shop and snack bar offerings to meet the needs of our valued customers. The future looks bright at Ice Land…come see for yourself and enjoy the fun while you are there!
