Our Cross Ice Program is managed by our Ice Director, retired professional hockey player, Mike Fountain.  Mike played in the NHL with the Vancouver Canucks, the Carolina Hurricanes and the Ottawa Senators.  He’s represented his country numerous times and, locally, played with the Grand Rapids Griffins for two seasons.  As well as working as the Ice Director here at the Walker Ice and Fitness Center, Mike also serves as the Hockey Director for the HAWK Youth Hockey Association.

Here's Mike leading a coaching session at WIFC:

Cross Ice at WIFC is a city run program that serves as a next step for anyone interested in continuing to learn the basics of hockey after Learn to Play.  Participants concentrate on the fundamentals of the game with a strong emphasis on skill-based practices.  After the first month of practices on Fridays at 6pm and Saturdays at 11am, we start playing Cross Ice games during the Saturday practice.  Players will be split into equal teams and given a jersey.  Full equipment is needed and can be purchased in our Pro-shop
