Skaters are encouraged to bring inline skates and give the rink a try after the clinic is finished. The rink was constructed in Dixon Park as a new build that includes a custom Riley Manufactured board system and a NOVA Play II flooring surface featuring the Capitals logo. The rink also features a Daktronics scoreboard with the Capitals logo. The rink has been built as a partnership between the Washington Capitals and the City of Fredericksburg, with generous support from the new Fredanthropist program and the Fredericksburg Youth Roller Hockey organization. In addition to supporting the new rink construction, the Washington Capitals are providing hockey equipment
and teacher curriculum to all four City schools’ physical education departments.
