Dekes & Dangles III is right around the corner . . . and we're going to try to give you the best head start possible. Dekes & Dangles is 100% contingent on the weather, so lets cross our fingers and hope for a great winter season . . . finally. We are currently in the construction process of the rink. All tournaments and public drop in sessions will be at For the Kidz Gymnastics. If you have never seen the beauty of Tron Pond, then you're going to want to mark your calendars and make time to come out and skate under the lights! We do have two (2) heated cabins to warm up in and/or change into your hockey equipment.

At this time we are looking at getting a list of teams that will be interested in playing in Dekes & Dangles III. Each bracket will only be accepting eight (8) teams into the tournament. The brackets that fill up first will be issued their weekend of play in order listed below. Example; B Bracket gets filled with 8 teams first, they have are awarded the first weekend of the available schedule, C Bracket would take the following the weekend. The only weekend that is OFFICIALLY set is the COED weekend which is February 9, 10 & 11, 2018. This is our Hockey Lovers Weekend.

potential available weekends

If a weekend is canceled due to weather we will try to reschedule the weekend. We are going to try to have all weekends booked through January & February. Available brackets for Dekes & Dangles III are; A, B+, B, C, COED & 30+. All brackets will be regulated by the AEA Salary Cap System. Be sure to follow the rules of the bracket and submit ethical and competitive teams into Dekes & Dangles III. All Public Drop In sessions will be $5.00 per skater. Play under the Winner Stays format, 3 vs 3. We will also be setting sessions for families to come out and enjoy the rink with their children as well.
