San Diego Ice Arena
For more than 34 years, San Diego Ice Arena has hosted weekly public skating sessions on their indoor rink including mascot-led games for kids, teen nights full of pop music and disco lights, and adults-only events scored to hits from the ‘80s and ‘90s. During classes, coaches give skaters individualized attention, guiding them through the basics or teaching them complex jumps that could help them leap over Lego buildings in a single bound. Figure skaters can also hone their skills during private lessons or freestyle sessions, while hockey players race after pucks during in-house league games, adult pick-up sessions, or private youth lessons.
San Diego Ice Arena’s pro shop stocks plenty of hockey and figure-skating gear, and skaters can also bring in their skates for a variety of maintenance services including skate sharpening, skate stretching, and blade repair.
