that's cool. that's exactly why i'm interested in that they give "learn to play" clinics. i've played roller hockey, but have been wanting to get into ice.

ye thats cool. I play in a league in brooklyn, at kings bay. But man ice is nothing compared to roller. Nothing.

you should definitely do the learn to play if your intersted. Its 250 for 10 weeks... its already 4 sessions in, but hey, call the rink maybe they'll let you in

Yea I meant chelsea across the board, not just the elite league, which obviously would be pretty sick. I just don't like the ethos there from the staff right down to the 5 dollar pizza slices.

If you're a Sabres fan in NYC check out the Blue Moon Cafe on 75th and 1st Ave. It's one of the few NYC places with hockey on every night and there's apparently a huge Buffalo crowd that frequents the joint.

Sorry to dredge up an old thread... But I'm looking for more open ice myself.
I play every Friday night at the Ice Hutch... but since my hours were changed at work, I want to find more pickup games. I'm always trying to get better!

I'd like to find a level that suits me. I've played ice for a little more than 2 years, been on some HNA leagues, etc. I'm not a beginner, but definitely not ready for A or B-level kind of play.

I tried playing the noon-time skates at WSA a few times, but the skill level there is just a shade too good for me. Lots of guys there get angry when lower-level players hit the ice. (I've heard Chelsea Piers skates have become all high level... not sure how true that is though. I've never skated there.)

Are there any other places around that has regular open ice? I'm looking for early morning, morning... or late night skates (since I work during the day). If it's a good core of players I wouldn't mind driving to Jersey or further up into Westchester if there's ice available. Anyone know of anything? Thanks!!!

How much is open hockey at ice hutch?

Also, do they check ID for these open hockey games? I turn 18 in March so I would not be technically allowed in.

Thanks.

Are you stricly looking to play pick-up? If not, the WSA Master B, which is an over 40 league isn't bad. And the C 1,2, and 3 levels are pretty good too. Some pretty good teams mixed in with some average to ok at every level. I'm a goalie for a over 40 team and fill in at some of the open-age level teams. Fall season should be getting started in about a month. There's usually an organizational skate a couple of weeks before the season starts.

good luck.
Ice Hutch is easily the worst rink I've ever skated on. Absolutely atrocious.

my bro plays there.. He's on the Metro Moose

Up until 2-3 years ago there were "limited checking" leagues playing in Sportorama in Monsey, Rockland, NY. Not sure if that's still the case but worth a call to those interested.

how much is this camp? I really like Aviator, but I dont drive, so its a pain for me to get there. If anyone is planning on doing this and wouldn't mind carpooling, Id be eternally grateful.


as for the Chelsea league, another thing I really want to do, but again I dont drive. If anyone wants to do this and wouldnt mind carpooling, PM me.

Haha my old stomping grounds (worked as a Zamboni driver there when i was 18-20 in college )

The ice is BRUTAL in the summer time because the rink is in a bubble and the ice gets very warm..but in the winter time they have one of the fastest and best ices around. I have to assume you played during the warmer season there.

They are about to build a second rink though, a indoor rink (not a bubble) that will be used year round, and the only rink open in the summer. So that should help them.

You live in the Westchester Area Gong?
