call the susquhana sports center in Lemoyne ,Pa. Ask them what type of floor they have. It is by far the best surface I have been on.

I have purchased both Sportcourt(tm) and Mateflex(tm)...can recommend them both.
Don't know what your experience is, so we're shooting in the dark here, but:
I had very good luck that my most recent purchase was not color specific, that is, I didn't need to have the floor all one color. I approached a couple of manufacturers and bid that they could take whatever over-run material they had sitting on the shelf and sell it to me. I ended up with four different colors on the floor, but it works great!
I placed the different colors as differentiated sections on the playing surface. This is great for teaching/drills! You can set up zones for a variety of hockey and other game-play situations. Doesn't interfere with field markings at all. We had played twenty-two different indoor team sports on this surface prior to my going out of business.
Key was I spent about 13K for 5,000 square feet, and I paid no shipping charges. I got what I felt was a good deal, a very good product, and the manufacturer was able to "unload" material that he might not have sold otherwise...everybody really won on this deal.

If you're buying a plastic tiled floor then this is the best flooring I've skated on, bar none. Much grippier than sport court, orb court, ice court, mateflex and the puck doesn't bounce on it excessively.

Putting in a new floor at your facility will improve the arena tremendously. Whatever floor you decide to put in I hope I get a chance to skate on it.
Good Luck with your search,
