Safe, Chaperoned Environment for Youth in Morris Township and Randolph

Teens, adolescents and their families can skate at a discounted price for evening ice skating on 10 weekends in Morris County this winter thanks to New Jersey Coalition for Education and Positive Choices.

The discounts are being offered at specific skating sessions beginning this Friday, Jan. 3 and running through March 7.

Stigma-Free Morris County: Skating Discounts for Youths and Families at Mennen Arena and Aspen Ice

Friday night ice skating at the Morris County Park Commission’s Mennen Sports Arena will cost $7 including skate rental. DJ Earl provides the music. The box office opens at 7:30 p.m. and skating is open from 8-10 p.m.  The arena is located at (for GPS) 161 Hanover Ave., Morristown (technically in Morris Township).

Saturday night ice skating at Aspen Ice Arena runs from 7:30 – 9:30 p.m. and costs $10 including skate rental. The arena is located at 16 Aspen Drive, Randolph.

Both arenas offer a snack bar.

The sponsors seek to provide an opportunity for teens and adolescents to have fun with their friends in a safe, chaperoned, healthy, drug- free environment.

To get the discounted rate, visit the table staffed by New Jersey Coalition for Education & Positive Choices in each arena’s lobby. The program is open to Morris County kids of all ages and their families. You don’t have to be a member of the coalition to participate.

Several sessions will offer themes such as law enforcement night, firefighter night, martial arts, fitness night, and dance night. The goal of these initiatives is to create connections, foster interest in new activities and hobbies and engender career interest.

Additionally, the Morris County Sheriff’s Department will create a free official ID card for any child who would like one on Photo ID Night.

The NJ Coalition for Education and Positive Choices is comprised of law enforcement agencies, educators, elected officials, Scouts, organized sports, musicians, businesses and parents working together to unite our communities in the war against drug and alcohol addiction.
