A Message From The Cornerstone Arena Director


Hello family and friends! 

I hope that you are well and doing what you can to balance the “Pause” while keeping your spirits lifted.  To say we miss seeing you around the arena is a sad understatement.  The quiet that has fallen over the building is eerie.  But, I can share that during this down time, our staff is working hard to get the place looking brand new again for when you return! 

While we are certain it won’t be exactly as it was before March 16th, we will do our best to provide you a safe and enjoyable experience with each visit.  We are currently working on our reopening plan.  As soon as we get the green light to commence again, you will know it.  We may shout it from the roof tops, write in the sky, or just send an email.

The latter is probable! For those that had their programming cut short, we will work with each family to get your credits applied to future classes and clinics.  Until the reopening comes, keep in contact.  We love seeing the social media posts of dry land training, puck challenges and general silliness. Wishing each of you good health. 

Best Wishes,

Shelley Unocic
