Phoenix-area rinks

I just found out I'll be moving to Tempe this summer, and it will be the first time in a while I've been in an area with multiple rinks.

So I was hoping to get the scoop on which rinks are the best/least pricey/most fun to play at from people out there. I know there's several in the area.

I'm not a straight-up newbie any more, but I'm certainly not any good and would actually love a chance to work with coaches more on a week-to-week basis rather than just making it up as I go along. I also saw a reference to a women's league out there but haven't been able to find much about it.

So anyone from out there want to help out on my quest for the right place to play out there? I'm going to be working in southwest Tempe, and the place I live is still TBD.

You'll have a few options.

Oceanside is closest to Tempe. That's where I do my D-league classes and games. One ice sheet, nice ice. They have a women's league on Tuesday night (or maybe it's beginners league, I'm not sure).

You could also go to Polar Ice Chandler or Gilbert, but that would be a little further. I skate at Polar Ice Peoria, which is very similar. 2 sheets at each rink. LOTS of hockey time, between stick time, open hockey, leagues, etc.

Besides what frackiewicz mentioned there is also Arcadia Ice about 20 mins from Tempe and Ice Den about 20 min north in Scottsdale. You really have a lot of ice close by. I think the Polar Chandler has women's league as well as the co-ed adult leagues. There is also a women's club called Cactus Valley Hockey. I believe that is the one that usually plays at Oceanside.

I'm jealous. I really think there could be another rink on the west side - maybe Avondale? I'm sure the recession has a lot to do with it, but really - east side players are spoiled with all of that ice!
