Jacksonville Ice joined ice rinks across the country to celebrate Hockey Week Across America from February 17-24. The week-long celebration was created by USA Hockey to engage the hockey community in celebrating hockey at all levels and exposing the sport to new audiences.
As Northeast Florida’s only ice rink to offer year-round skating opportunities, it is always hockey season at Jacksonville Ice! During Hockey Week Across America, we watched Floridians lace up a pair of skates and head out onto the ice and spectate from the stands.
During the week we had giveaways, discounts and events centered around hockey and our communities love for the sport.
On February 23rd, we hosted a free Try Hockey clinic. This event was designed to provide kids, between the ages of 4 to 9, a completely free experience to try youth hockey. Brian Ferlin, a former Boston Bruins NHL player who used to play at Jax Ice as a child, made an appearance! We appreciate everyone who came out to the event and to the coaches and volunteers who made the event possible! We had a great week and can’t wait for next year!
