The team consists almost entirely of former pond and high school skaters who have lived, worked, played or are connected with Blue Island. You can cheer them on at the Southwest Ice Arena in Crestwood or the Oak Lawn Ice Arena.
The City of Blue Island hosts special events each summer, including our popular TGIF picnics with MetroSouth Medical Center. For more info about special events contact Rita Pacyga at (708) 396-7085
