Minnesota is the best place to play hockey because of the cold winters and THE ABILITY TO SKATE OUT OF DOORS!
Minnesota Made Ice Center opened rink 3, our outdoor sheet of ice on Saturday, November 23rd. Choice Squirt, Super Squirt and Super PeeWee teams broke in the ice and enjoyed a great weekend of fresh air and hockey.
Our refrigerated and zamboni maintained rink offers athletes of all ages a place to create and rekindle childhood memories that will be cherished and shared for years to come.
All Rink 3 Ice Times listed are on our outdoor, fully refrigerated and Zamboni maintained sheet of ice.
The Minnesota Made Ice Center, what was once home to the Midwest Racquet Club housing eight indoor tennis courts, is now the home of two indoor NHL size hockey rinks. The existing structures, with it's clear span truss design, allowed for a very efficient and cost effective remodeling from tennis courts into two sheets of NHL size hockey rinks. An eighty foot addition was added to one of the main buildings to allow for an impressive lobby entryway and the full length sheet for ice hockey. We also have spectator seating in each of the two primary indoor rinks of 250 and 150 respectively as the primary use for all rinks will be for training and clinics.
The overall property size of 5.5 acres allows for ample parking of 200 plus cars along with a third sheet of outdoor ice added in 2012. With an old school feeling, our open air third sheet is a refrigerated sheet allowing outdoor ice beginning the weekend of Thanksgiving. The outdoor ice surface allows for outdoor hockey games, team practices, and clinics until the end of February.
