Adult Drop-In Hockey

Adult drop-in is for skaters 18 years of age and older. Drop-in hockey is an informal, non-checking game for players of all skill levels - with no officials or supervision. It’s a great way to have fun, improve your skills, hang out with friends, and stay in shape all at the same time. A helmet is required.
