Celebrate Michigan Hockey Day February 16 at the Taylor Sportsplex

The Taylor Sportsplex will be a key site for Michigan Hockey Day, set for Saturday, February 16.

The day’s activities include:

  • A high school hockey game featuring the Taylor Unified varsity team vs. New Boston Huron. Game time is 7 p.m. Tickets are $5 each, but all kids wearing a hockey jersey will be admitted free.  The game is Senior Night, where all 12th-grade hockey players on the Taylor team will be recognized. There will be a shoot-out in the first admission featuring the Tot Hockey and I-Program kids. And, if you buy a ticket to get into the high school game, the same ticket will provide free admittance to the public skate that follows the game from 9 to 10:20 p.m. (Skate rental is not included.)
  • Special public skating sessions, set for 7 to 8:50 p.m. and 9 to 10:20 p.m. Tickets are $5 for adults and $4 for youth. Skate rental is available for $2. Admission is free with every paid admission to the high school game. The late skating session will feature members of the Taylor Unified hockey team.
  • Adult drop-in hockey, which takes place from 9 to 10:20 p.m. Saturdays. The cost is $8 per player.
  • The second annual Zamboni Sale. No, the Sportsplex isn’t selling Zambonis, but every time a Zamboni is resurfacing the ice, everything in the pro shop becomes 40 percent off.
  • Bubble hockey. If you love the game of hockey, you love bubble hockey. The TSX will have more than seven bubble hockey machines around the area – all of them set on free play.
  • Mini-stick game. A giant inflatable ice rink will be the site for the ultimate mini-hockey stick game. Bring your own sticks or check out the pro shop for your favorite team’s stick.
