JULY 7, 2021 – Skate Anytime was founded in 2016 by former collegiate hockey player Michael Pace. After a successful playing career at Syracuse University, he built Pace Landscaping & Ice Rinks into a leading provider of design-build landscaping & outdoor ice rinks throughout Western New York.
Recognizing the need for affordable, accessible and year ’round hockey training, Pace embarked on developing a synthetic ice surface that would meet the demands of today’s hockey players. Working with Swedish engineers, Pace developed a Synthetic Ice training solution that closely mirrors the feel of real ice. Special attention was devoted to ensuring a smooth connection between tiles with an industry-leading, patented, interlock system. Built from the ground up to withstand the rigors of hockey training, all Skate Anytime tiles provide a smooth and responsive feel, even when placed on less than level surfaces.
Powerful hockey stops, inside & outside edge work stick-handling and shooting development are just a few of the improvements players experience with Skate Anytime. The confidence gained from being able to practice at home, anytime, has helped thousands of players build their game.
Skate Anytime has grown into the Number One provider of Synthetic Ice on Amazon. In addition, Skate Anytime Synthetic Ice is shipped throughout North America including the United States & Canada. Used by both NHL Teams and Professional Hockey Trainers, Skate Anytime is trusted by pros and aspiring pros alike.
In 2021, Skate Anytime introduced Precision Dryland Hockey Tiles. Designed to mimic the feel of real ice, Dryland tiles are an even more affordable solution for players looking to improve their game. Featuring shooting pads, slide boards, rebounders and goal creases, the modular Precision Dryland tiles can be configured to any size requirement. Also new for 2021, Skate Anytime developed USA made Hockey Puck Stopper edging. Designed to work with either Synthetic or Dryland Tiles, Hockey Puck Stopper edging keeps practices & games going without interruption.
Skate Anytime provides the hockey training surfaces today’s rising stars need to reach the next level. More information can be found at https://skateanytime.com
