120 x 60 Rink – This two-thirds scale rink is ideally sized for 3-on-3 game play. Fully equipped with professional boards, player benches, penalty boxes, scoreboard, etc.
46 x 28 Rink – Our smaller, “Thunder Alley” rink is home to our shooting and goaltender training..
We have two team locker rooms equipped with showers (for use by the 3-on-3 teams), and one “open” locker room equipped with individual, stadium-type lockers for use by students attending the clinics and individual training sessions.
CUSTOMER LOUNGE/OBSERVATION ROOM
We have a large and comfortable lounge area for parents and others who accompany the skaters and goalies. The lounge features a full-height window to allow observation of the action on ice, a wide screen TV to watch some of the latest sports programs, as well as Wi-Fi internet access.
This platform can be used by parents and others to get a closer view of the action on the ice. We have three spin-cycles located on the platform for use by students or parents
DRYLAND TRAINING AREA
This area is available for plyometric and other off-ice training. Players, please note – there is no shooting allowed in the dryland training area or in any other off-ice area of the facility. This policy is strictly enforced.
SETS MULTISPORT TRAINER
The Multisport is a remarkable new resistance training machine that has changed the way athletes train for speed and endurance. Originally designed for ice skaters, the Multisport has evolved into a device that is used on and off the ice for both skating and running. It is capable of providing resistance from 5 - 40 lbs, in fixed and progressive modes. These machines are now in use at virtually all NHL training facilities and by many Division-I college teams. Cutting Edge has the only machine available for use by the public in Northern NJ.
A session on the Multisport machine will challenge and press the most experienced skaters. And because the Multisport Training is conducted on ice, it represents a vast improvement over conventional skating treadmills.
HOW THE SETS MULTISPORTS WORKS
A computerized data interface allows recording (and display) of distance and speed on the ice. With the data, athletes can train for the individual components of speed, start, acceleration, and top speed. This data can be used, for example, in a program to improve starting speed and quickness. In this example, the results of a baseline and modified technique can be seen, measured and quantified on the machine, and then used as nearly instantaneous feedback for further development of the starting technique. Possibilities are limitless.
