HILL HOCKEY CLINIC, LLC TO OPEN ICE HOCKEY RINK COMPLEX IN MESA, AZ
August 5th, 2020
Hill Hockey Clinic, LLC is excited to announce the opening of an ice rink this fall which will be centrally located in Mesa, AZ.
The newly expanded 36,000 square-foot sports complex will boast 1 full sized NHL Rink (200’ x 85’), 4 locker rooms, a pro-shop, a skating treadmill, dryland training area, concession stand, and a party/meeting room.
The building, which will be named - Arizona Made Ice Forum will be home to a variety of programs including: youth hockey (boys & girls), adult hockey (men & women), learn-to-skate, figure skating, sled hockey, teams, leagues, camps, clinics, public skating and will also be a premier location for first-class tournaments in the valley.
“Hill Hockey has the passion and expertise to make our facility a premier hockey rink in the Southwest” states owner Eddie Hill. The rink will be located in the Phoenix East Valley which is 1 mile from both the 101 & the 202, and just north of the 60.
Currently, Arizona is 3rd for youth hockey growth in the nation over the past 5 years and is 1st in growth for girls hockey.
“There is a ton of pride and passion for the game of ice hockey here in the state of Arizona and we are extremely excited to offer the community a much needed sheet of ice” says Hill. “This is truly a dream come true for my business and family here in Arizona!”
Arizona has no shortage of customers with deep pockets with few competitors in the space. Also, the rinks are cold which doesn’t hurt when it’s 110 in the shade.
Yep, 200 people move to Phoenix everyday (as of last fall anyway). There's bound to be some little hockey players in that group every other day.
Glad to hear he now has a western rink to go with his Tewksbury spot. He’s done a ton of improvements to that facility and I’m sure he will do the same in Arizona
Good guy and well deserved! Let’s hope some networking between MA and AZ occurs.... it’s be nice to play in PHX in FEB
