Blade comfortably inside the temperature-controlled ice emporium, which safely protects skaters from outdoor nemeses such as cold rain, glare-inducing sunshine, and overzealous vacuum salesmen disguised as pigeons. After fitting tykes in stylish rental skates, parents can usher their pintsize gold-medalists-in-training to the rink to perfect their form during the up-to-three-hour skate period. Alternatively, one, two, or three couples can take to the ice to impress their significant others with flawless triple salchows or garner sympathy with poorly executed figure-7s.
Iceland of Hampton Roads
A row of flags hangs in solidarity from the rafters above an indoor ice rink, uniting Canada, the USA, and Sweden in the one passion that they all have in common: hockey. Iceland of Hampton Roads fosters this love of icy sports in skaters of all ages and experience levels via youth hockey leagues, synchronized skating classes, and lessons, in which instructors introduce students as young as age 3 to their reflections in the ice. Adults compete in 10- or 20-game seasons in hockey leagues utilizing USA Hockey rules—and kids' hockey leagues consist of games, practices, power skating, and skills. During synchronized skating classes, teams of 8 to 20 skaters choreograph complex skating formations, such as the parallel pinwheel—in which lines of skaters rotate in unison—or the flying V—which they use to head south for the winter.
