Sign Up For Summer Hockey Now

The Town of Oyster Bay Ice Skating Center is currently offering early bird registration for the town’s Summer Hockey School program, developed by The Rinx Hockey School at the Town’s Ice Skating Center, located at 1001 Stewart Ave. in Bethpage, according to Town Councilman Chris J. Coschignano. Hockey enthusiasts can sign up for any number of weekly sessions at discounted prices now through April 1, from one week to all eight weeks of the program.

“This summer, hockey players in the Town of Oyster Bay will have the unique opportunity to develop and learn new hockey skills in week-long sessions designed specifically for their talent level,” Coschignano said. “Parents may register their children now for the Rinx Summer Hockey School, which is not only a great way for kids to spend the summer, but is also an excellent opportunity for them to fine tune their hockey skills.”

Coschignano commented on the schedule for the hockey school. The program, which is slated to begin June 29 and run through Aug. 17, will include a full day of on-ice and off-ice training run by trained hockey professionals. Throughout the week, participants will receive the benefit of 15 to 20 hours of on-ice training and six to eight hours of off-ice training. The program will be broken down into two levels, intermediate and advanced. The intermediate skills program is for ages five through 12 and will include 15 hours of on-ice training per week and more than eight hours of training per week off the rink. The advanced session is geared for travel players ages six through 14 and includes 20 hours of on-ice training and six hours of training per week off the ice. Both skill programs focus on shooting, passing, agility drills and field sports. Lunch every day is included.

“The Summer Hockey School sessions will be challenging, but will result in newly developed skills for our young hockey players,” Coschignano said. “Each class will be filled with useful tips and techniques to fully develop each student’s hockey playing abilities.”

“The Rinx Summer Hockey School is not only a great way to spend the summer, but an excellent opportunity to fine tune their hockey skills,” Coschignano continued. “Town of Oyster Bay residents receive a 10 percent discount on any of the training weeks.” Early arrival and late pick up will also be available.

Anyone interested in registering for the program or looking to find out more information on the Rinx Hockey School should go to or call 516-797-4126 and ask for Ed Chandla.

Spring Sports In Syosset


Frozen Ropes co-owner Peter Witkow of Port Washington

However, Frozen Ropes, an indoor sports facility, with two Long Island locations (Garden City and Syosset), which is centered on baseball and softball, might be the ticket to getting your children active during the season when they’re least likely to do so. But first, let’s answer a pressing question—what exactly does “Frozen Ropes” mean? [Read more…]
