George Cloutier (1996-2008) is the inspiration behind George’s Pond at Hirsch Coliseum. George had a dream that some day there would be an ice rink in Shreveport for everyone to enjoy. George’s Pond at Hirsch Coliseum offers public skating, ice hockey, junior hockey (jrmudbugs.com) figure skating, birthday parties, private group parties and more. In addition to the ice rink, the facility hosts concerts and other entertainment events including ETBU Hockey. Live to Love, Love to Live.
