Welcome to RinkWatch, where skating meets environmental science!
Bienvenue sur RinkWatch, où le patinage rencontre sciences environnementales!



Hey RinkWatchers, it's time again for our First Rink contest. We are looking for the first skateable backyard rinks in Atlantic Canada, Quebec, Ontario, western Canada, eastern US and the western US. We have some official NHL ball caps for the winners. How do you win one? Take a photo of people skating on your rink and post it to our Facebook page or Tweet it to us. Then, go to the rinkwatch.org website. If you’re new to RinkWatch, create a username, pin the location of your rink on our interactive map, and start entering daily skating conditions. If you'’'re a veteran RinkWatcher, simply reactivate last year's rink and post your photo. Don't worry if you don’t win the first rink contest, we will have more contests throughout the year for RinkWatch participants. Please help spread the news about RinkWatch, and happy skating!
