Kent Valley Ice Centre to Close a Few Days to Re-Paint and Re-Line the Ice Surface

Kent Valley Ice Centre will be closed a few days to re-paint, re-line and groom the ice surface in preparation for the 2018-2019 hockey season.  The ice rink will be closed starting Labor Day September 2nd and will be back up and running on Thursday September 6th.  This effort along with other interior/exterior maintenance efforts this summer serve to make the Ice Centre more comfortable and enjoyable for our valued customers.


Fitness & Training Centre Shooting Station is Nearing Completion

The shooting station at Kent Valley’s Fitness & Training Centre is nearing completion.  The final sections of glass are in place, the netting is being installed and the fire sprinkler heads have been protected from flying pucks.  Soon, aspiring hockey players will be able to reserve the station in 15 and 30-minute increments when not reserved for team use. 

Get in Shape - Figure skating and hockey take more than just skill on the ice.  You need to be strong, fast, and healthy to make sure you go home with the top prize.  At Kent Valley Ice Centre, we ensure you have the tools and equipment you need to build your strength, improve your flexibility, and increase your stamina.  Our Kent, Washington, Fitness & Training Centre is conveniently located inside our facility, so you can go from the ice to the gym without having to pack up.
