The Mill is Arizona’s only Hockey Training Warehouse
OUR MISSION is to provide hockey players of all ages, levels, and teams, a safe facility to develop their hockey skills, while bringing the Arizona hockey community together.
OUR STORY starts back in 2015 when Jarred and Bailey met and instantly connected over their shared interests as they had both been involved in the Arizona hockey community for a variety of years. Eventually the two got married and dreamt of opening The Mill Hockey Training Warehouse. With the help of their family and friends, The Mill was built from the ground up, and is truly a family business.
This rink is equipped with synthetic ice, full boards, and glass. This rink is a scaled down version of your regular ice hockey rink and perfect for pick-up games and skills sessions.
A designated shooting lane area with synthetic ice and hockey nets. This space is perfect to perfect your shot or play games with friends. Also great for goalie training.
