Facilities ManagerCraig White - CNY native who grew up playing hockey, lacrosse, swimming and soccer.  I wanted to give back to the hockey community that my children have always been involved with and this career was the perfect opportunity.  I have a background in OSHA regulations and I am making a commitment to make this rink a safe and clean environment for all ages.  I have been working on improving this facility, including but not limited to, assisting in overhauling our new lobby, bar and snack bar, installing flooring and maintaining the ice conditions in order to give all of our customers a more enjoyable experience.  Looking forward to a great season!
Office Manager/ Ice SchedulingCady Schmid - A 2006 graduate of C.W. Baker where I then continued education at SUNY Oswego, obtaining a NYS Teaching Certificate for grades 1-6.  After a few years of teaching at the pre-school level, I decided I wanted to pursue a career change where I could still utilize my organizational and creative skills.  When the opportunity arose to work at LIA, a facility where I spent a lot of time growing up, I couldn't turn it down.  I have been honored to be a part of the remodeling and exciting recent additions to the rink.  As the Office Manager, I am responsible for ice scheduling, monthly invoicing, and keeping LIA organized.  Although I am often the face behind the scenes, I strive to have a positive relationship with all of our families, skaters, vendors and anyone else who walks through our doors!
