Pickup Ice/Roller on Long Island / NYC Area

Mods - I can't find the thread that I know exists on this. Something about a continuous open Saturday night hockey game. I've used the search feature to no avail, please merge if you can locate that thread.

I was just curious if anyone had a list or something along those lines of rinks that offer open hockey, either ice or roller. I was at Ice Works today (I'm sorry, if it makes you guys feel any better, I did not remove my Rangers hat ) to get my skates sharpened, and asked about their open skates to which my surprise they said they did not have any.

I also know about that outdoor indoor style rink in the park by the Floral Park LIRR station. I keep meaning to check that out. Has anyone been there?

I just think it's time to get on the ice and back in the game.

Baldwin Park has an outdoor roller rink with an indoor surface that usually has a good crowd on Saturdays. Also during the week around 4ish you can occasionally find a good game. The skill level varies but in general I'd say it's about as good as B-level beer league.

Hey all! I play on ice with the Old Pucks out of Freeport during the year. We wrap up our season in late April. We are a group of mostly 40+ in age. I enjoy it because we form teams and match lines pretty evenly with regards to skill and age. Non checking and non heavy slap shots and the ref keeps the shift time.

I'm looking to keep playing during the summer months. However, I really don't want to get set up in a pick up game where there are so many young guys that simply use an old fart like myself as a pylon. Anyone know of a game somewhere on the Island or in the boroughs with a bunch of old rink rats like myself? Ice only, please. Thanks!

Sorry I never got back to you on this earlier.

We play every Sunday in Smithtown/Nesconset at the Smithtown Public Library location. Roller hockey rink is in the parking lot/field area.

148 Smithtown Blvd
Nesconset, NY 11767

We have a group on Facebook called 'Armory Hockey'

It's a big group of guys, and everyone is super cool.

A lot of guys record tons of the games, so there is lots of footage on youtube. Here is one below someone shot with a go pro taped to their helmet.

There is always a Thursday 11 PM game at Cantiague Park, but you need an invite.

Superior in Kings Park does Friday and Saturday night. They usually get a decent amount of people. They keep semi-decent ice in the summer months too.

Skate Safe does open hockey during the day. Some days there's a ton of people, and some days I've had the rink to myself.

Hey gents,

I play a *TON* of roller all over LI. Skate Safe has the best rink around, (Inline 1 in Mt. Sinai was amazing but it closed). World Gym in Setauket and Sports Arena in Smithtown have their own open rink times available. I do know that Rapid Fire out in Shirley also has late night skates every weekend for a few hours.
