Any rinks where they skate *clockwise*?
For the past year and a half, I've been learning hockey at Culver City Ice Arena. During all their open skates, they always have people skating counter-clockwise....and never change directions. So consequently, my crossovers and such are a helluva lot better going one way than the other.
I've since graduated onto going to stick times, but I still like to hit the open ice and just work on skating from time to time. So I'm wondering, are there any rinks around where they skate the majority of the time clockwise? Even rinks where they alternate from time to time would be good.
Thanks in advance!

They should switch halfway through. At least they used to, but I'm talking about the dark ages.

Yeah, they *should*.....but they don't.
I know....it's stupid.

Where do you go to stick time?

I don't think I've ever skated there. Are there nets, too? How crowded does it get with kids trying to do Robbie Schremp lacrosse moves?

There are nets, yeah.
I only ever go on Mondays, and there's usually a goalie, sometimes two. It's pretty open, except that half the ice is usually taken up by some 3 on 3. I'd say there's anywhere from 15 - 20 skaters in attendance.
They have stick times Sunday morning 7:15 to 8:45 (too early for me) and Tuesday evening too 6:15 - 7:00 (totally packed).
