HOUSTON HOCKEY & SKATE WORLD is a locally owned and operated business.
“I look forward to the challenges of being my own entrepreneur in this endeavor. Houston needs a place where the customers can get great pricing, customer service, a knowledgeable staff, and a great selection of equipment. I envision Houston Hockey & Skate World as ‘the place’ to go not only in Houston but in the surrounding areas as well. We look forward to working with every single skater, coach, referee, team, and organization around.” Dean Hill
