Ice Rink

Lessons canceled today, Dec. 9th all day.

Welcome to the SRA Ice

This year we mark 55 years of Ice at Southampton! In 1962 Reynolds Metals donated an ice skating rink to Southampton Recreation Association. Around 1971 a roof and walls began to take shape, and in 1975 the rink was rebuilt because of a transformer fire that destroyed it.  Between 1980 to 84 Scott Hamilton taught Make a Wish Foundation lesson on SRA ice and did one of his trademark flips.  Singer-songwriter Robin Thompson coordinated music for the Ice Revues in the 1980’s. And we had nationally known coaches Barbara Easely and Edward Van Campen (Dutch National Champion) as well as Jack Coulter.  Student’s came from as far away as Petersburg to take lessons on our ice.

This year we celebrate 55 years of friends, family, fun, awesome donations and selfless volunteers. We celebrate an incredible community of people who support SRA, not only ice, but tennis, swimming and family.  We celebrate figure skating, ice hockey and the pure joy of gliding and playing. Come celebrate and join our winter community and our awesome new rink roof!

Skate Swap and Lesson sign-up

Skate swaps are in the SRA clubhouse. Bring your old skates and hockey equipment to sell. Tag it with your name and price and leave it on the table. Buying skates and hockey equipment are a great deal on the skate swap table. Skates and equipment will be available through the month of November in the clubhouse.

Lessons are available for children age three through adults.
