Inside ProtecHockey Ponds Ice Center?s impressive, 52,000-square-foot facility, figure skaters, hockey players, and casual skaters alike glide across three separate ice surfaces?including an NHL regulation-size rink?during lessons, games, and public-skating sessions. Ranging from junior hockey players to New Jersey state figure-skating champions, the team of coaches imparts skills during everything from introductory skating lessons to four-day hockey camps. When the center isn't hosting the public for skate sessions, ProtecHockey Ponds Ice Center is home to the Protec Ducks Hockey Program, and the nationally recognized Protec Academy Learn-to-Skate Program. Upstairs, a full-service caf? serves coffee, hot chocolate, and delicious food for visitors to warm up before watching the center's hockey teams. The rink's staff can also host birthday parties, group outings, and fundraisers in their private room.
