The 42,000 square foot facility, scheduled to open in September 2010, will be the first new ice arena in the county in over 20 years. It will feature a full NHL sized rink in addition to a mini rink, plus a synthetic ice-training center located on County Rt. 524 near Exit 31 on Interstate 195.
Managing Partner Glenn Adamo, a lifelong hockey devotee said, “We are pleased that the Howell Board looked favorably on our application tonight. Having the NJ Titans club make their home with us in a modern family-friendly ice center was a key decision in moving forward with this project. We want this to be a place that serves the needs of the community while also celebrating the great game of ice hockey. The NJ Titans have shown great success in developing student-athletes at all levels so getting the Haviland family involved in the project adds significant credibility to the hockey experience. Ice Hockey in this area is exploding and there is tremendous demand for a modern state of the art facility”. The Junior Titans, members of the Atlantic Youth Hockey League and the Metropolitan Junior Hockey League, have played at the Gold Coast Arena in Wall Township NJ for the past five seasons after moving from Middlesex County in 2005.

We know that going forward our membership will realize tremendous benefits skating in our new home. We will have private dressing rooms exclusively for Titan players, provide better value to families, access to the SuperSkills Training Center as well as more convenient practice and game times. We can increase the number of skaters in our club and move more players to high school, college hockey and beyond.”
