Program Details 

Rec Skate - This is an ideal time for skaters of all ages to enjoy recreational ice skating time.  Regular admission rates apply and skate rentals are available. Hockey and figure skating is not permitted during Rec Skate sessions.

Cheap Skate - Come and enjoy a Rec Skate session with discounted rental skates! Skaters with their own skates pay regular admission.

Adult Hockey Skate - Hockey players age 16 and up can organize "pick-up" games and practice skills.  Equipment is not provided. Please keep other skaters safety in mind at all times.

Stick & Puck - This is a casual hockey skate time for all ages to enjoy the ice with their stick and puck. Organized games are not permitted at this time.

Frozen Tots - This session is designed to be a slow skating experience for less-experienced skaters who may be intimidated with larger skating crowds.  Ice scooters are available for younger skaters that meet the criteria.  We encourage novice skaters to "wall crawl" and find their balance on skates if possible.  All ages are welcome but we ask that skating activities are considerate of novice skaters safety.

Group Skating Lessons - Ice Skating Lessons for Beginners are led by experienced instructors to teach safety and basic skills for enjoying ice skating.  Intermediate levels and figure skating is also available.

Private Skating Lessons - Pre-registration is required. Please call 541.552.2258 after the rink opens to schedule private instruction for all ages and skill levels.

Free Open/Hockey Skate - The rink will be open for skaters to enjoy the rink at no charge.  Staff is not on site and skate rentals are not available. The rink may close intermittently based on weather conditions and maintenance needs.

School Field Trip Programs - We are unable to provide School Field Trip Programs for the 2022-2023 Ice Skating Season due to staffing shortages. We look forward to bringing this back next season!

Team Youth Hockey - We are unable to provide youth hockey programs for the 2022-2023 Ice Skating Season due to staffing shortages.  We look forward to bringing this back next season!
