Extra Skating Time

All currently registered Learn to Play, House League and Travel players are invited to skate for FREE at all Gateway Ice Center Public Ice Sessions. Players must wear their Fresno Youth Hockey or Fresno Jr. Monsters jersey during public skating session. Check the Gateway Ice Center website to find a time and day to get on the ice.

Stick time is another great way to get extra ice. Stick time is an hour ice session that Gateway Ice Center provides when available. It allows a player to practice individually on his/her skills and technique. Also, it opens up an opportunity for private lessons with some of our Coaches.  See our Director of Hockey for private lesson instructors.
