Off the Ice

The 10 Sports Centre offers indoor, dry-land hockey training.

Ice = hockey, right? Not so fast. At its dry-land hockey facility, the 10 Sports Centre in Long Lake offers indoor, ice-free practice space and programming for hockey players at all levels. The dry-land area is located inside the center’s dome and is made of a durable “sport court” material that allows a hockey puck to glide along just as it does on the ice. Coach Chris Erickson helps organize clinics, camps and training programs for local teams, small groups and individuals. “The coaching staff does fitness work, hockey-stick handling, shooting, puck work and strength training,” says owner Donny Mark. “It’s a very big space. The puck slides nicely on the court.” For more info about training programs, visit the website here.
