Partnerships and Playoff Push

Author: Hand Made Hockey |

Exciting news coming out of Metcalfe, Ontario: RiverOak Skating Trail and Hand Made Hockey have teamed up to introduce a unique setting for sharpening your hockey skills.

RiverOak Skating Trail is a 3 KM enchanting frozen pathway through orchards, meadows, and forests, which includes a series of hills, twists ant turns. They encourage guests to bring their sticks and pucks along - they also have a few extras on site if you forget yours at home! There are a few areas which are ideal to start a good ol’ fashion ODR shinny game as well, with nets strategically set up on traditional ‘pond hockey’ playing surfaces throughout the trail.

Hand Made Hockey was lucky enough to be approached by RiverOak to work together and come up with a unique program that offers the opportunity to sharpen your skills in a picturesque setting. On Sunday, January 20th, 2019, HMH will be offering a skills demonstration, public skills session, learn to skate and skating & edges sessions that is open to the public. People of all ages and skill levels are more than welcome to come and try it out, run through the puck control patterns and get coaching and tips from professional skills coaches. Ryan Hand, former Major Junior and Professional Hockey Player, will be leading these on-ice sessions. Come and learn from a Pro! Please see below for the official schedule:
