Meanwhile, regular tournaments pit player against player in an exciting onslaught on the ice.?
San Diego Fencing Center’s experienced coaches thrust confidence, improved agility, and the thrill of competition upon the suited shoulders of their dedicated disciples. After undertaking two lessons a week for one month, youths will know how to artfully parry foil flicks with proper footwork whilst advancing and riposting in turn. The Center’s six grounded, regulation-size strips allow for extensive hands-on training, and onsite shower facilities and convenient parking are a boon to parents and dusty compact cars.
Steel blades rhythmically slice the ice across two spacious rinks at Ice-Plex (formerly Iceoplex Escondido), an all-purpose facility pairing leisurely open skates with practiced instruction from director Courtney Moebs and a staff of pro figure skaters. Specialties span everything from choreography and freestyle to ice dancing and yeti dodging, though basic lessons for both kids and adults are also available. Public-skating sessions beckon amateurs and experts on a daily basis, during which skaters can emulate the moves of their favorite hockey players. Replete with a well-appointed gym, indoor pool, and jacuzzi, an attached fitness center offers classes in aerobics, aquatics, and an aquatic-aerobics class led by an off-duty Aquaman.
The pristine sheets of ice at Ice Palace’s outpost in Aliso Viejo serve as a well-kept tundra ideal for diversions such as hockey, figure-skating, and public skating sessions. Future NHL stars and misinformed basketball players can both sharpen their stick-handling skills in the facilities' Learn to Play Hockey programs, whereas Learn to Figure Skate sessions teach beginners everything from forward and backward moves to entry-level jumps and spins. Held throughout the week, open skating sessions allow the general public to let loose as couples slip on their skates, hold hands, and fearlessly tie each other's laces.
For more than 34 years, San Diego Ice Arena has hosted weekly public skating sessions on their indoor rink including mascot-led games for kids, teen nights full of pop music and disco lights, and adults-only events scored to hits from the ?80s and ?90s. During classes, coaches give skaters individualized attention, guiding them through the basics or teaching them complex jumps that could help them leap over Lego buildings in a single bound. Figure skaters can also hone their skills during private lessons or freestyle sessions, while hockey players race after pucks during in-house league games, adult pick-up sessions, or private youth lessons.
San Diego Ice Arena?s pro shop stocks plenty of hockey and figure-skating gear, and skaters can also bring in their skates for a variety of maintenance services including skate sharpening, skate stretching, and blade repair.
Sharpened ice skates trace paths around La Jolla Ice Town's icy interiors, offering a wintry change of pace from the temperate San Diego climate. Open seven days a week for open skate, the sports center spruces up laps around the rink with a live DJ paired with disco lights every Friday and Saturday night.
Professional coaches also tutor skaters on elegant stops, turns, and crossovers during figure-skating classes and teach athletes to maneuver pucks during youth and adult hockey clinics. Additionally, family-friendly activities, such as birthday parties, broomball, hockey games, and an annual ice show, attract visitors and inspire them to transform a jacuzzi tub into a personal-size skating rink.
