      Hi Ayden — Everyone’s a winner with this one. We are live streaming an event from the facility today (see the link in the original post) and the event will be archived, so you can go behind-the-scenes with us — virtually — anytime. Hope you have a chance to watch it… let us know what you think.

      That’s cool, Jacob. Keep your eye on our events page (www.discoveryeducation.com/events), because we do lots of events and maybe one of them will be about something you like.

    Jennet,

    are we going to see some of the Jets players

      Hi Coleton! That’s one of the first questions I asked! Unfortunately, the Jets were on the road when we visited — I think a 5-game road trip — so they were not there. (That’s why the locker room in the picture is empty.) However, lots of the staff of the Hockey Academy are former professional players from various leagues and countries, so we got some great ice time with amazing players. Definitely check the archive out, if you didn’t get a chance to watch live: http://www.discoveryeducation.com/events.

    I don’t know what the rink is for but I am going to guess that it is for a four team game because of the four blue areas that look like goalie boxes.
