Protec Ponds Training Center


Protec Ponds Ice Center is the premier ice rink for tournaments in Central New Jersey.  From annual staples like our Shamrock Showdown each March, our Schools Out Shootout Spring Youth Hockey tournament each June, our 3v3 New Years Day tournament, our Varsity High School Winter tournament over the winter holiday, to fun new tournaments like our Mite Meltdown in September that also acts as a season kickoff party with all sorts of activities around the building, and our Thanksgiving Youth Hockey tournament for Mites and Squirts. But great hockey is just the start! These tournaments are chock full of vendors, great food, and fun for the whole family!  For teams in need of tournaments throughout your season, we’d love to have you.  To get acquainted with all our tournaments, you can always find information here, or email
