    Welcome to the most complete Training Center in the twin cities









    Announcement 5/22/2020

    Hello again hockey families.  Per our communication yesterday, our petition in the courts is still unresolved.  As such, we are forced to cancel our games this weekend.  Further, given that our summer camps start on Monday, June 8th, we have made the difficult decision to postpone the entire spring portion of the LumberJack League.  Here is our plan:


    League games will start mid-July and continue until tryouts start.  Depending on when associations start tryouts will determine how many games in the league we are able to fit in.  Our goal is to fit in all 17 games at this point.


    We appreciate your patience and understanding.  We are doing everything in our power to get you back on the ice.  If you are interested in helping, we encourage you to contact the governor’s office on the matter.  His email and phone number is below.  Thanks for your support.

    Summer Camps are on as scheduled

    The LumberYard


    Welcome Back

    We are pleased to share that the Lumberyard will re-open with limited 3v3 league activities on Wednesday, May 20th.  General public will not be allowed in building. The restaurant/lounge will remain closed.  Below are our rules to responsibly reopen. These procedures includes limits on number of people to remain below 20% capacity, extra time between events so we can sanitize, and social distancing recommendations.  Note that we made additional adjustments to the league schedule. The website is current with the schedule for the spring portion of the league.  The fall schedule will start in August and will be available in early July.  To accommodate as many games as possible and fit in all games between now and when the league ends before tryouts, we did the following:

    • Games have been added to Memorial Weekend.  Not all teams will play that weekend and no team will have more than one game between Friday and Monday.
    • Additional games have been added to weeknights in June and July.
    • One game from spring will be pushed to the fall. See you at the rink!



    • All employees will be tested for a fever each day before they enter the facility to work and will not be allowed to work if they have any other symptoms from the MDH Health Screening Checklist
    • The procedures below will allow the facility to remain at less than 20% of capacity and to be nearly empty between games for a period of time which we will use to sanitize all high touch areas
    • All high-touch surfaces will be wiped down between activities
    • Hand sanitizing stations will be located along the traffic pattern and be clearly marked.



    It is your responsibility to assure the following

    • Only 1 guardian with each athlete. This keeps us to under 20% of building capacity
    • You, your athlete, or anyone in your household has no symptoms and all hands have been washed/disinfected before entering the facility
    • You and your athlete abide by the highly predictable traffic pattern. Enter the rink, put skates on. Leave the rink with no detours within the facility
    • Only one set of participants will be allowed into the facility at a time.
    • Participants may only arrive 10 minutes before their scheduled activity.  As such, we recommend that athletes enter the facility fully dressed (other than skates)
      • All athletes and guardians must leave within 10 minutes of their scheduled activity ending
      • Activities will be scheduled with 25 minutes between them allowing for all participants from one activity to leave before the participants for the next activity arrive
    • Guardians and athletes should follow social distancing when in the building including when tying skates
    • Only two guardians will be permitted for each bench.



    • Maintain social distancing on the bench via marked spots where they can stand or sit awaiting their turn on the ice.
    • Keep gloves on after skates are tied, including during duration of event.   
    • No water bottles allowed. Hydrate the day before and day of the game.
    • No handshakes after the game
    • Player will not congregate at door of rink. When skates are tied, head to your bench and stay spread out until the door opens to go on the ice
