About the Black Ice Pond Hockey Association
The Black Ice Pond Hockey Association, a non-profit entity started in 2010 created this event as a way to maintain and expand ice skating opportunities for the community as well as honor the rich heritage of hockey in Concord. Over the past two years, the tournament’s success allowed the association to give well over $250,000 back to the community, in areas that are true to our mission. Funds earmarked for Concord Parks and Recreation went towards providing an outdoor skating location in the south-end at Rollins Park, maintenance on the pond at White Park, and site-work & design for a new multi-use skate house at White Park, that will replace the existing dated building and will house the hockey history of Concord. Funds going to Concord Youth Hockey programs will provide development resources for recruitment days and affordable equipment for entry players.
In 2011, Black Ice also took over the advertisement at the Everett Arena, allowing advertisers to receive exposure at the Black Ice Tournament and for 12 months at the Everett Arena.
