The Haymarket IcePlex is such a fun story. From my understanding (PWC Grandpa plays Ice Hockey, too!), “The Lumberyard” was built in a former 84 Lumber warehouse to make sure that the PWHC members could continue to play when the Prince William Ice Forum/Plex/House/Center collapsed. Once they got going, though, people decided that having a second skate location was a great idea, and even with the original hockey club moving back to Woodbridge, Haymarket is rocking out on its own!
The complex now houses open skating, hockey, a Synchronized Skating team, learn to skate, and special events!! One such event coming up is the “Skate With Us” event on December 19th from 6-8:30pm which will feature performances from local skaters and teams and public skating sessions. This event will be $7 for adults, $6 for kids, and $3 for skate rental.
The Piedmont Skate School at Haymarket Ice Plex has a great upcoming program if you’ve been thinking about skating for your child. Their Winter Break Series is a 4 day program that will give your child a jump start on lessons, which will start in 2012 with 7 week series beginning January 9th. The four day program is a great way to make sure your child likes the ice before comitting to a full series of lessons. (As a former competitive figure skater from a hockey family, let me just say your child should like the ice. Ice is Nice.) The Winter Break series includes 4 public session practice passes with skate rental so that your child can really jump start their skills! It’s such a great program, in fact, that Piedmont Skate School at the Haymarket IcePlex would like to have one of your children join them for FREE!
Entering is super easy- just head to the link for the group lesson calendar (Here) and then leave a message on the facebook wall for the Piedmont Skate School about which session you’d sign your child up for!! This contest will be open through Sunday, December 11th until 7:00pm.
