The Rinks & Great Park Ice Podcast

After a bit of a hiatus, our podcast is back! With a new look and a new name. In this episode, our main topic is Return to Play! We discuss the grassroots programs that are making their way back along with league play. We also talk about the initial idea of the podcast when the shutdowns first happened and the new direction that will encompass the hockey aspect but also figure skating as well as facility updates.
