OUR MISSION: To advance the ice rink industry through membership, world-class education, training, resources and events.

The United States Ice Rink Association is a non-profit national membership organization for individuals, facilities and vendors in the ice rink and arena industry. Formed in 2000 through a joint venture between U.S. Figure Skating and USA Hockey with the intent of servicing the needs of ice-skating facility owners and operators in the United States.


As a member of U.S. Ice Rink Association you can log in and check out our current and past issues of Rink Magazine.


Our Parks Department had a pretty big staff reduction over the past year. Our rink takes out ice in a few weeks and we are going to be “reclassifying” employees to work other departments over the summer with the intent to get them back in the Fall. Other rinks that do this – what do I need to know? Does this model actually work?
