Tommy’s Hockey Shop, Minutes From USA Hockey Headquarters

Only minutes from the USA Hockey headquarters in Colorado Springs, Tommy’s Hockey Shop is famous for the best skate sharpening in the west!

Owner Tom McCarthy and his partner saw RapidShot earlier in the year at the One Goal Hockey show in Boston, and it captivated their innovative spirit. The retail environment is always looking for unique ways to enhance the shopping experience and satisfy their loyal customers, so Tommy’s Hockey Shop has become the first location in Colorado to put in a RapidShot shooting lane, right within their store.

RapidShot has a “stick testing mode” that can help you evaluate sticks with empirical data, “When you spend a lot of money for a stick, you want to know you like it, and that it is going to work for you,” expressed Tom McCarthy.

“We are pleased to have Tom in our RapidShot community. He is absolutely convinced that RapidShot is the best shooting tool, and hopes to enhance your shopping experience by making it available right in his store.” Walter Payerl, president of RapidShot North America.

Tommy’s Hockey Shop is located on N. Academy Blvd, just south of the Academy/I-25 interchange, across the street from the Chapel Hills Mall Ice Arena. This location makes Tommy’s the ideal stop-off for players and families located all over North Colorado Springs, including Glen Eagle, Monument, the Air Force Academy, and Briargate.
