Nytex Sports Centre invites skaters of all ages to slice the ice across the same rink that the Central Hockey League’s Texas Brahmas call home. Pairs of gliders can slip into rental skates before showing off figure eights or slow-motion salchows during Friday Night Skate, held on select Fridays from 6:45 p.m. to 8:15 p.m. Thirty-minute skate lessons introduce little feet to slippery surfaces during eight-week sessions, divvied up into age- and experience-appropriate levels. Youngsters of any ability can learn fancy footwork in Tot 1 & 2 (ages 3–5), Pre-Alpha (figure skaters ages 6 and older), or Hockey 1 (hockey skaters ages 6 and older); adult courses provide grown-up gliders a mature environment in which to execute flying V formations while dressed in their sharpest sequined shirts. Click here for additional FAQs on skating lessons, or call ahead to inquire about upgrading to specialized skating lessons for an additional fee, including the Competitor’s class ($225) and Mini-Mite Hockey ($249).
Nytex Sport Centre also welcomes birthday ice-blazers with two festive party packages that accommodate up to 10 skaters or five skating horses. The Slap Shot celebration fuels festivities by serving up savory bites from ZuRoma Sicilian Kitchen, including hot dogs or pizzas, and both packages provide one festive room and an accompanying host for up to 90 minutes before or after public skate.
Although Nytex Sports Centre sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
NYTEX Sports Centre
On any given day, NYTEX Sports Centre's expansive compound—with plentiful courts, fields, and an ice rink—can simultaneously host a youth soccer match, a women's flat-track roller derby, and a rowdy Brahmas hockey game. As a hub for world-class competitors and recreational athletes of all kinds, the 140,000-square-foot playpen welcomes casual skaters to explore the same full-size rink the pros play on during open-skate sessions and amateur hockey leagues. NYTEX's birthday-party packages also grant rink access to partygoers for celebratory skating and "Happy Birthday" songs sung by a chorus of revving Zambonis. Special community events, such as the annual Armed Forces Hockey Classic, call the sport's complex their home, while the on-site Italian restaurant, ZuRoma, replenishes calories spent cheering on favorite teams.
