San Jose – rink no longer updating their cancellation calendar

Hi All – we need someone willing to contact San Jose rink management regularly at the end of each month – (408) 279-6000 -to prod them into posting a cancellation calendar. The rink employee who used to do that for the skating community has moved on. I think the San Jose rink has forgotten that there are members of the skating community who drive more than an hour each way to attend their sessions.  Its lousy to show up at the rink expecting a workout and find out its cancelled. The rink knows more than a month ahead of time what their schedule is and they should be considerate and post it! Please respond to info@norcalspeedskating.org if you can contact the rink and bug them about this. Thank you.

SAN JOSE RINK RENOVATIONS: 2018 SUMMER SESSION SCHEDULE

Speed sessions are scheduled in San Jose these dates: July 8 and 22; August 5 and 19. San Jose rink’s multi-million dollar renovation has included removing the center and north ice surfaces and the underlying sand, pipes, and dirt to a depth of 10 feet to remove the perma-frost. New dirt and rock were tamped into place, and covered with a layer of sand. Concrete and pipes will be laid in, and finally the surface will be flooded in layers to build up the ice. The rink has worked with the clubs to schedule practices throughout this process. Please enter using the east side doors. The cash register is located there. The rink employees will bring the pads across the parking lot. The skate locker, with the blocks, is in the usual location, in the construction zone at center ice. An employee can accompany anyone who is retrieving the blocks, or looking to rent a pair of speed skates.
