hockeyshot.com — beginner kits, ice resurfacers, bumper kits, hockey goals, pucks, shooting aids and all manner of hockey accessories for the backyard rink enthusiast
Greenhouse liners (recommended by Gunnar Whitehead of Whitehead's Landscaping, who has been building his backyard rink for more than 6 years) — cost effective and easy to use, and at 3 ml, lighter than typical rink liners, but just as strong.
Remember to allow 3-6 weeks for delivery of online liners. So plan ahead and order early. Even better, split a large roll with another backyard hockey rink addict and save costs on supplies.
