You know the new hockey season is getting ready to begin when we printed all new graphics then we spent the day at Rodman Arena installing new hockey boards advertising, lobby window graphics, a dry erase board to outline new plays and a backdrop for player interviews.
Since the opening of its doors, the Rodman Arena has been focused on one objective: helping individuals fulfill a dream.
The Rodman Arena was originally built as a training facility for the United States Women’s Olympic Hockey team, and has since seen many Olympic medalists pass through its doors.
Not only does the arena accommodate aspiring hockey players, but with two ice sheets – one NHL sized and one Olympic sized – figure skaters and speed skaters flourish here as well.
The Rodman Arena also serves the community, as it plays home to numerous high school hockey clubs, select programs, skill development camps, and prominent amateur tournaments.
In 2005, the Rodman Arena became home to the Atlantic Junior Hockey League’s Walpole Express Junior A team. Now 7 years later, the Rodman is not only home to the Express Junior A team but to the Metropolitan Junior Hockey League’s Walpole Express Junior B team.
