About Velocity Hockey

Home of Minnesota's Longest-Running & Highest-Attended 3-On-3 Hockey Leagues!

The Velocity Hockey Center is a 130 X 65 regulation hockey rink that is used primarily in the Spring and Fall for our 3-On-3 hockey leagues, in the summer for our Velocity Hockey Camps & Clinics and in the winter for ice rentals to a wide variety of youth hockey associations for their team practices.

The Velocity Hockey Centers in Eden Prairie and Osseo feature a unique hockey rink in that it is two thirds the dimension of a regular ice sheet found in a typical municipality setting. With the smaller ice dimensions at Velocity Hockey Centers, players will expedite the development of their all around hockey skills in the following ways:

  • Players will handle the puck more, which in a competitive small rink environment is going to develop better fundamental skills and a better understanding of the game.

  • Players will develop faster read and react skills with and without the puck. The game is faster, which forces you to learn to “Think fast and play fast.”

  • Players will develop quickness, lateral movement and transitional skating on the smaller ice surface.

  • Players will work on and develop their shooting and passing skills due to the much higher tempo, up and down game that creates many scoring opportunities for both teams.

  • Players will be developing their skills and having fun in a different and unique environment. That combination is a very good thing. 

  • Players are playing in a much less structured 3 on 3 hockey game thus enables them to try new things, not be coached and just go out and play pond hockey.

  • Goalies will face a lot more shots from all areas. With the abundance of scoring chances the 3-On-3 games create, the goalies are forced to make 50-60 saves a game!

  • Velocity Hockey believes that players from all ages and skill levels that participate in our fast paced Velocity Hockey 3 on 3 leagues will develop a strong fundamental skill set and have fun in the process!
