Hockey nuts will love what this article has to offer. At KwikRink, we have serviced several private residences with their own home-ice advantage. Generally, the client installs a home rink for their kids (or themselves) to have fun and train for hockey.
Others will dedicate an area in the house for shooting pucks in between periods of the game. Some do it simply because they can, and they love hockey. Below are ten ideas for your dream home rink.
If “you build it, they will come” rings true, you won’t be able to get the kids off of this (or their teammates), so I would recommend investing in convenient feeding strategies like the pizza oven offers.
