    Skate as much as you can at the rink, get yourself able to stop on one side and then go to a Robbie Glantz power skating clinic. Its about 175 bucks for three nights, but you'll learn the right way to skate. I think the Robbie Glantz hockey clinics are at TSC (and other rinks) every summer.

    There is a rink in Torrance/Harbor City. It is called The Skating Edge. It is a bit run down but you can rent hockey skates.

    It is on Western, South of Sepulveda on the east side of the street. It has public skating Friday and Saturday night. It is North of Narbonne high.

    This is where I play hockey in their league. It is pretty friendly.

    They are supposed to remodel it in a month or 2.

    Does that remodeling include a re-build of the ice sheet and a fix for whatever causes the chronic "frozen waves" in the corners?



    Where's their website? ..... with their schedules for sticktime, pickup hockey, public skating, adult league info, etc., etc.,

    I'm not sure if the rumor of the Bay Harbor remodel is fact or fiction.

    I am not their representative, I was just referring someone that wanted to go ice skating. You don't have to go there, means nothing to me either way. If you don't like it there or had a bad experience, then do what you want. The guy wanted to go ice skating.

    I don't notice any waves in the corners. CC had this. The ice here is sometimes soft for the figure skaters but for learning to skate, seems fine for me.

    They don't have a website as far as I know. Here is the hockey league http://www.westpachockey.com/

    I am told they are doing it and the current hockey season is short to accommodate the closing.

    I coached the midgets there a few years ago and now they seem to have lost a lot of players due to the poor quality of the rink. They have no higher age group teams at all.


    We shall see

    I don't think bay harbor is necessarily all to blame there. The same thing happened to Marina Cities hockey club in the later years of the 90's era. That place was actually a hockey powerhouse but slowly with newer rinks popping up the older rinks lost attention. Bay Harbor also had quite a program as well. However those programs were run by parents of players etc. When rinks like westminster and healthsouth in el segundo opened up they one upped the older clubs by providing paid staff and making the programs a lot more 'official'.

    I started skating at CC years ago. It is hard to remember that the CC rink used to be the Kings practice rink.

    Bay Harbor is desperate for some renovations, at least make the place look clean.

    It seems to me that Bay Harbor is way more into figure skating. Strange since the owner's son is supposedly an excellent hockey player. I think the wife is big time into the skatig club they run.

    Back when Tom Hughes was there, my son got into the in-house league and that was his start to hockey. Now he is 23 and I love playing with him

    Ted Cabral runs the Adult hockey league. Ted maybe recognized by some players as a ref. Kind of (this sounds insulting) a chubby hispanic guy. Very friendly.
