The total raised was – $379.65!  A check has already been cut and donated to METAvivor, a most worthy cause that is dedicated to the specific fight of women and men living with stage 4 metastatic breast cancer. At the time of METAvivor’s founding, no organization was dedicated to funding research for the disease and no patient groups were speaking out about the dearth of stage 4 cancer research.  While more and more people have taken up the cry for more stage 4 research, METAvivor remains the sole US organization dedicated to awarding annual stage 4 breast cancer research.

Protec Ponds is proud to announce our brand new Adaptive Skating Program

Protec Ponds Ice Center in Somerset, NJ is proud to announce that its Learn-To-Skate USA program will soon be providing individuals with disabilities specially designed classes. The progressive Adaptive Badge curriculum was developed by US Figure Skating in partnership with Disabled Sports USA and offers specialized training and support. Protec’s inaugural 6-week session begins on January 5, 2019, coinciding with National Skating Month. Participants will be paired with volunteer buddies and skate under the guidance of a USFSA-certified coach. Since ice skating is an individual sport, participants can progress at their own rate according to their ability.

At Protec Ponds, we offer a wide range of ways to enjoy your time on the ice.  Public Skates, Stick Times, Open Hockeys, and more.  And if you’re looking to start or continue your journey in ice sports, we have the programs to get you there.  Whether you’re looking to learn to play hockey, or learn to figure skate, it all starts in our Learn To Skate program.  Our certified and professional instructors keep learning fun as your skating skills continue to grow.  Once you’ve learned all the skating skills you’ll need to know prior to joining our hockey or figure skating programs, the next steps are as follows.  For hockey players, you’ll then want to register for our Hockey Academy.  For ages 4-13, the Hockey Academy is a full equipment program that offers clinics and scrimmages so young players can learn and have fun while being instructed on the basics of hockey.  After passing through the Hockey Academy, your hockey adventure continues with the Protec Ducks travel hockey organization!  Go Ducks!!  For Figure Skaters, after passing our Learn To Skate Intro to Figure Skating classes, you’ll want to look at our Bridge program: a figure skating training program for beginners!  Then you’ll want to match up with one of our top tier figure skating coaches and take lessons during our Freestyle sessions.
