Most regular times are booked for the season to the end of March.

There are also many spots open in April and May, please check our calendar for available spots. Please note that due to ongoing renovations, we cannot have any large events in the arena. 

To book the ice, it is best to contact our Arena Office by e-mail (greguod@halifax.ca) as we have minimal staff, and are not always working in an office environment by a phone, but will have access to e-mail when working on the track in the ice area. CLICK HERE TO SEE OUR BOOKING CALENDAR  and see if there are available times. We recommend you book a minimum of 2 weeks in advance.  If you do not have e-mail you can leave a message with Debbie at (902) 464-2600 ext. 303. Payments can be made by cash, debit, credit card or cheque at the temporary office on the track, when the track is open.

To book ice, we need the Group or Event name, approximately how many skaters, type of skate (nets or extra nets required?) contact name and phone number, mailing address and e-mail address to send invoice and contracts to, as well as days and times you are interested in. If you are interested in a day and time that shows "ice unavailable", please let us know if you're interested and if we can see if we can staff it. This is one of the reasons why we need a couple of weeks advance notice when requesting.

*Annual bookings / monthly invoiced clients - 1st payment and contracts must be signed before you can play on the ice. Other month invoices are due before the end, of every month* 

*Those not booking regular monthly ice time for the year, must pay for rentals right away, at time of requesting/booking*

Please note we will not be having any large events in the arena this year due to renovations and a limited number of staff and no accessible fire exits in some sections of the arena seating. Due to limited staff we can not do rentals that require Skate guards. There are fees for extra nets, 2 extra nets are available with regular rental if pre-booked a minimum of a week ahead of time. We cannot guarantee you can get extra nets if you ask the day of.
