LIVERMORE, CA-The San Jose Sharks hockey team is considering development of an ice-skating rink here to promote their sport.

Team officials say they are considering a 5.8-acre site in the city’s Tri-Valley Technology Park. The facility would be open to the public and target youth in particular.

The Sharks already operate the Ice Centre in San Jose, which has three public rinks and a training area. Team officials say that a nonprofit group will likely run the planned Livermore facility.

Plans have not yet been filed with the city, and although Livermore is the Sharks’ front-runner, they are also considering nearby Pleasanton and Dublin as potential locations. The team says it hopes to open similar facilities elsewhere in the Bay Area.
