About Peaks Ice Arena
The Peaks Ice Arena is a year-round family recreation facility nestled at the foot of the Wasatch Mountains in Provo, Utah. The Peaks is home to Learn to Skate, Youth/Adult Hockey Lessons and Leagues, BYU and UVU hockey, as well as Public Skating and recreational Hockey. Along with having two ice rinks, it also houses 2 indoor turf fields utilized for soccer, lacrosse, rugby and ultimate frisbee.
While I was going to school at Utah Valley University, I also was able to work at several jobs while I was working toward my degrees. One of those jobs was working at Peaks Ice Arena as a Hockey Instructor. This job allowed me teach Learn-To-Play-Hockey Programs for both youth and adults, do private lessons for people that wanted one-on-one help and teach both UVU and Hockey classes for the Universities. My role was to help anyone that wanted to learn anything about hockey and be there for all the scheduled programs we had set up for this. It was a great learning experience as it allowed me to practice a lot of communication skills. I picked up a lot of skills about talking to both kids and adults on a personal level as well as a group level. It was very rewarding since I grew up getting coached and have always wanted to give back. This was a very good way of allowing me to do that.
