Polar Caps - Changing the Game Video

Before the start of the 2016 season, the West Madison Polar Caps Hockey club was faced with a problem: too many skaters and not enough ice. After exploring many different options and in partnership with Madison Ice, we elected to build a new rink in the parking lot. What started as a novel solution blossomed into a major community building process -- connecting coaches, parents, neighbors and players, changing how we looked at hockey and producing some surprising results.
