With the availability of ice time being so scarce in the Los Angeles area, Apex is proud to feature Synthetic Ice options. Synthetic Ice gives hockey players the opportunity to train on a surface that closest simulates the experience of an actual sheet of ice. The sheet is constructed with interlocking panels of high-density polyethylene which, when connected and sprayed with a gliding fluid, becomes a simulated ice rink.
Apex will feature four shooting lanes (2 with synthetic ice, 2 with dryland flooring) equipped with shooter tutors to help with shot accuracy and radar guns to measure the speed of shots. Our shooting lanes will ultimately allow players to focus on the singular aspects of shooting that make a great shooter: repetition, muscle memory, endurance, and proper form.
Apex is proud to be one of very few training facilities that offer the revolutionary Sense Arena technology. Sense Arena is a virtual reality training system that helps players with their cognitive skill, reaction time, and Hockey IQ, which are all critical for peak performance. The methodology and drills that were developed for Sense Arena were done so in cooperation with professional NHL players and coaches.
