HARBORCENTER’s two NHL-size rinks combined with a world-class hockey specific fitness center, state-of-the-art classroom, and dynamic high-tech support system will provide players and coaches with the tools needed to improve their skills and knowledge of the game.
During the off-season, experts from around the world will join the resident staff to train and develop players and coaches.
