Arrows Hockey is one of the oldest hockey organizations on Long Island. The Arrows were first established as "Skateland Hockey" in 1962, borrowing its name from its home ice at Skateland Ice Rink (now known as "Iceland") in New Hyde Park. In 1986, the organization established its home ice at the Freeport Recreation Center and began operating as Arrows Hockey. Arrows Hockey is a non-profit association providing boys and girls ages 3 - 18 the opportunity to become involved in amateur hockey through Instructional, Intramural and Travel programs.
Several "Arrows alumni" have gone on to play college level hockey at Farmingdale, Stonybrook and NYU to name a few, and even NHL hockey such as Nick Fotiu of the N.Y. Rangers / Calgary Flames and Dan Dorian of N.J. Devils fame.
During its long and storied history, the Arrows have gone through many changes while successfully maintaining our primary values encompassing development both on and off the ice. In the early 90's, the Arrows were one of a minority of organizations, be it amateur or professional, to take the lead in developing and nurturing girls hockey in the region with the establishment of the Waves, now known as the Lady Islanders. We were also the first organization on Long Island to sponsor a Learn-To-Skate Program geared to offering beginners with their first "on-ice" experience with official Ice Hockey approved equipment at a very reasonable price.
With an excellent coaching staff and enthusiastic membership, the Arrows look to continue its successful tradition. We would love to hear from any Arrows alumni out there who would be willing to share their stories and pictures from their playing days.
