Do You Want To Learn How To Play Hockey? Chilled Ponds Has The Answer.

By Ken Peacock

If you are visiting this blog then you obviously have a love for Admirals Hockey. We all like to watch the game, but I am sure that there of some of you out there that either play or are wanting to learn  how to play. If you are wanting to improve on your current skills or can skate a bit and want to move on to learning some skills then I have an answer for you. Chilled Ponds in Chesapeake offers an Adult Learn to Play / Beginner Hockey classes on a regular basis throughout the year.

I am in the current session and have had a blast so far and I think I might do it again. There are about 12 people in my session. The experience ranges from some good skaters down to ah….lets just say …. not so good skaters. The thing is that we all came out to learn and improve on our skating and playing ability.  That is what we are doing, and enjoying every minute of it. Please take a look at the information below. The next 8 week session is due to start up on Monday Nov 5. Give Chilled Ponds a call and get yourself signed up.

I'm not the average hockey nut. It took a bit to grow, but when it did it was like a drug flowing in my veins. I am a season ticket holder of the Norfolk Admirals, longtime supporter of the Washington Capitals, and part time supporter of the Anaheim Ducks (It's hard, but it can be done). My blog is a result of the lack of good sources of Admirals information and happenings. Our paper provides very weak coverage and there is only so much the Admirals themselves can do. There are not to many blogs that cover the Admirals, and when they do it is just rehashed information from the club, the AHL. Nine times out of ten the blogger doesn't even live in the area or go to the games. So what do I want to do? Hmm...good question. I would use this as an outlet for getting out information about the Admirals. Not necessarily the information provided by official channels, but news and information from a fans point of view. Hopefully this is something I can accomplish. I am open to criticism, comments, contributions of infomation for the site. Thank You and Welcome......
