Friday Night 3v3

One of our most popular & fun spring offerings! All players are involved in the play, making it more interesting for players even of different skill levels. Fewer players on the ice means more opportunities with and around the puck. It becomes a game of strategy and position. Less space and less time requires quick decision-making. 3v3 hockey is a “skills” based game, played in tight spaces at a fast pace. Because of this, you quickly improve your “skills” to adapt to this fast pace. It increases puck handling, team play, transition – an offense to defense/defense to offense, positioning, and time on the ice. Goalies are always in the play, with more shots, movement, and opportunities to play the puck. No offsides, icing, officiating, scorekeeping, or coaching. Players are split into groups by age and ability.

  • 3 cross-ice zones
  • Rotating Regular shifts for equal ice time
  • Supervised by Twin Rinks staff

Fridays | June 18-August 27* | 5:50pm-7:10pm | $225
