Anyone looking to play a little puck in the city should body check on down to City Ice Pavilion on 32nd Place.

Newly appointed Director of Youth Programs at City Ice Pavilion in LIC, Alexis Moed, has big plans for the community hockey center. Moed, a former player herself, hopes to expand the hockey program through skills clinics and specialized classes. She is confident that through dedicated training, the center’s players can grow into tremendous athletes.

Moed played Division 1 hockey for Boston College. She was selected to participate in a scrimmage against the Olympic team in Lake Placid during the 2002 Salt Lake City games. She is also a former member of North Axis College Sports Management, a firm responsible for presenting marketing prospects to NCAA Division 1 schools.

The Long Island native will now oversee the complex’s staff members as well as manage the center’s travel and house leagues.

City Ice Pavilion’s travel team, the Skyliners, is currently in the tier three bracket of the Long Island Hockey League. Moed believes that with practice, they can move up to tier one.

“We definitely have one of the finest facilities and coaching staff in the area,” she said. “We provide quality training; all of our amenities give City Ice clubhouse feel, and its setup is unique compared to other rinks”.

The facility is equipped for success, boasting a 34,000 square foot skating dome and an NHL size rink with one of the most well maintained ice surfaces in the greater New York City area. Off-ice amenities include a 17,000 square foot locker room and a state of the art fitness center. City Ice also hosts a 4,000 square foot synthetic ice surface, just for shooting practice.

World Ice, City Ice’s sister arena, boasts an NHL size rink as well, incase they need some extra space.

“City Ice is an amazing facility,” said Moed. “It’s not often you find a rink as complete as we are. I don’t ever see a reason to go to another rink. Everything you need is right here.”

Participants at City Ice are as young as four years old. Moed believes that hockey promotes positive behavior in children, fortifying skills such as discipline and time management.

But the facility is not just limited to kids, however. The center offers skating and skills classes for adults as well. Moed, who didn’t learn to skate until her teens, thinks it’s never too late for anyone with interest and dedication to get in to hockey.
