Ford Ice Center understands that equipment maintenance is an important factor to performing at your best. Expert skate sharpening is offered at our facility along with other boot and blade services provided by Laura Mitchell and Mike "Coop" Cooper. Both Laura and Coop have trained under the microscopic direction of expert Mike Cunningham, US Olympic Team official skate sharpener and founder of Skater's Paradise in Maryland.
