I am moving soon from San Jose (i know, i know) to Dallas. I am on 3 teams in SJ (2 full time, 1 sub) and wondering what the playing life is like in Dallas? How many rinks? Hows the ice? What are the fee's etc.
If this is the wrong section, please let me know. I am new to the site (I did check in "the rink" section, but didnt think that the request fit) and saw a previous post in this section.
We have the Dr. Pepper Stars Centers scattered around the metroplex. There's a couple more independent ice rinks, but unfortunately I don't know too much about them.
right now its looking liek the plano/addison area (75/635/tollway/GBush) area. so im guessing the plano rink will be closest.
are the rinks all affiliated? do you have home/away games? kinda intersting. i clicked on several of the leagues and they have a decent number of teams. looks like i will have a couple of months off (moving ~march) but very interested. this was one of the biggest worries that i had when thinking about moving. at san jose, we have TONS of freaking teams (for comparison http://stats.liahl.org/display-stats.php?league=1 ) and i was afraid about how it was in the south.
I play in the MCHA (Metroplex Christian Hockey Association) and it is a blast. I live in Plano and in our league we play primarily in McKinney and Frisco with a few games in Grapevine and ITC in Richardson.
