DU Recreation Center
& Denver Ice Arenas
Recommended by: Big George & George Junior from Englewood
So cool! I went to the ice rink on the DU campus. So much stuff goes on there. They have drop in hockey. I didn’t expect to get to play hockey with a lot of cool kids. It was so much fun! I helped my little sister skate around the open rink, but the drop in hockey game was my favorite part.
One of best ice areas in the Denver area is located at the Denver University (DU) Recreation Center. It provides a great escape to entertain the whole family. The rink is part of the Coors Fitness Center, a center housing aquatic and ice programs. You’ll find programs ranging from learning how to skate to hockey games for kids and adults.
Few things beat an indoor skating arena with full climate control. The rink is NHL-sized. It’s the perfect size for skaters of all ages and experience levels. The polished look of the rink really catches you off guard. This is a true gem to visit for those with a passion for ice sports. Few rinks are as well up kept and enjoyable to step onto.
Adults will be interested to learn that the arena offers winter and summer Adult Hockey Leagues. Leagues are a great way to indulge your love for the sport in a prime environment. Jr. Pioneers Hockey is the perfect league for the little ones. Events run throughout the year. Drop-In ice hockey is another staple of the arena. It’s for ages 18 and older, preferable people with hockey experience. For ages 5 and older, Stick & Puck Ice Hockey is an exciting way to learn how to play.
If you live close to the DU campus, purchasing a Ritchie Center membership may be in your best interests. Ritchie Center members are privy to free public skate sessions at the rink. The membership also provides access to the Coors Fitness Center, which happens to hold an Olympic-sized swimming pool.

|Jacob Tip: I was afraid of ice skating at first. The skates felt awkward at first, but the more I practiced, the better I could skate. Now I love to skate. I even like playing ice hockey. Practice really does make perfect. If you want to do something, don’t give up. Keep trying!|
