The Anaheim Ducks announced today that the National Hockey League (NHL) club has added Poway ICE to THE RINKS Development Program. Formerly known as Poway Ice Arena, Poway ICE becomes THE RINKS’ first facility in San Diego County.
Poway ICE is part of a program that includes facilities in Anaheim (THE RINKS – Anaheim ICE), Westminster (THE RINKS – Westminster ICE), Yorba Linda (THE RINKS – Yorba Linda ICE), Lakewood (THE RINKS – Lakewood ICE), Huntington Beach (THE RINKS – Huntington Beach Inline), Irvine (THE RINKS – Irvine Inline) and Corona (THE RINKS – Corona Inline). The Ducks now operate eight local skating facilities, consisting of five ice rinks and three inline facilities. The Ducks originally launched THE RINKS Development Program on Feb. 13, 2009.
“This is great day for THE RINKS Development Program and hockey in San Diego,” said Vice President of THE RINKS Art Trottier. “Poway ICE will be a significant addition to THE RINKS and become a destination for local hockey players throughout San Diego County.”
Poway ICE is the official practice facility of the San Diego Gulls, Anaheim’s primary development affiliate in the American Hockey League (AHL). Poway ICE will offer youth and adult hockey programs, figure skating, a learn-to-skate program, public skating and broomball. In addition, the facility will also host group events, fundraisers and birthday parties. For additional program information for all RINKS facilities, visit www.The-Rinks.com.
