Metropolitan Riveters women’s hockey training on the American Dream rink – archyde

It happens twice a week, like clockwork, in The Rink at American Dream.

Every Tuesday and Thursday evening, after the ice-skating children and parents have cleared the ice, the ice rink staff get to work. They chip off the top layers of ice and then steer the Zamboni back and forth to leave a smooth, groove-free new topcoat. Once that is done, they set up red hockey goals at opposite ends of the rink.

Then it starts.

One by one, players from the Metropolitan Riveters, New Jersey’s top professional women’s ice hockey team, hit the ice. They wear red, blue, green, white and black training jerseys. You slide across the ice and will soon be accompanied by coaches Ivo Mocek and Kelly Nash.
