Help our Odessa Friends keep their rink!
Our friends in Odessa, Texas need your help; this summer, the Ice went down at the Music City Mall Ice rink. Which is one of two rinks that kids in the Permian Basin get to play at. Some of our Houston teams have played against teams who play and practice at this facility. It’s a crucial rink for those in Odessa, as they only have two. The owners and management are trying to weigh options of putting the ice back into the mall or using the space for other retail options. Most everyone who has played, coached, or even grew up playing hockey in West Texas knows that the ice at MCM is a vital part of our youth hockey and our organization. Should Music City Mall officials decide not to continue operating the rink that has been in the community for well over a decade. Opportunities will become limited for hockey players and skaters alike. As the Permian Basin will shrink from two ice rinks to just one. This will force programs to cap the number of players and skaters they may have due to ice time limits. Thus, impacting local youth in the community by limiting the number of opportunities available to them.
