Learn to Play Hockey

Exciting news! All of our programs are about to get even better!

The Mid Hudson Civic Center and Ice Time Sports management group has retained the services of veteran program architect and arena operations expert Mike Bonelli. Mike will be instrumental in helping in the development, restructuring, and vision implementation to help guide us in a direction of community stewardship, program growth, and the development of all of the athletes that come through our facilities.

With over 30 years of program architect, arena management, and player development knowledge Mike brings a unique blend of talents that will address the experience of all of our customers from contract rentals, adult leagues, figure skating, travel hockey programs and recreational growth programming.

Mike has already been instrumental in assisting the management team and in the coming weeks will help introduce new and exciting programming upgrades, and policies that we anticipate will address current concerns about the facilities and management.

We look forward to having Mike in and around both facilities often, and he looks forward to meeting many of our customers in the coming months.
