New Bay Weld Skate Aids Coming This Fall

This fall, the Kevin Bell Arena will have 10 brand new Bay Weld aluminum skate aids to assist beginners on the ice.  With the support from the Kevin Bell & Family Hockey Fund, at the Homer Foundation, Bay Weld and the Rasmuson Foundation, first time skaters will quickly gain confidence and skill with these aids. Come join us for public skate, birthday parties or school field trips.  Now we have enough equipment to make sure everyone skates at the rink.
