Family Sports Ice Arena

Whether you're an ice skater, a hockey player, learning how to skate, or just looking to glide on the ice, the Family Sports Ice Arena is the place for you.

Oh, and did we mention, it’s the practice facility for the Colorado Avalanche? So fans, stop on by to watch them get ready for the next game. You might even get a signature or two.

And once you’ve built up an appetite, hit the concessions or eat at our full service restaurant and bar that overlooks the Avs’ practice sheet. 

Safe Return to the Ice Arenas

Arapahoe County has increased to Level 2 in the Safer at Home model. Below are changes being made to the current policies at Family Sports Ice Arena. Thank you for your understanding.

  • Spectators are no longer allowed in the ice arena.
  • Capacity is limited to 50 skaters per rink.
  • In an effort to accommodate any person with medical or special needs, those who have young children, or those with a child in the 4-6 year old class, we will open the space where Lollipop was once housed. We will have tables set up and do our best to livestream the activities on the Avalanche rink. We must adhere to a maximum occupancy of 40 people in that area and those 40 must adhere to the Arapahoe County ordinances.
  • Public skate sessions on Thursday nights are canceled for the forseeable future. However, lessons will continue that evening.
  • The LTS lanyards and Arapahoe U-8 Public Sessions are currently suspended.
