About Us:

The University of Delaware Ice Arenas offer something for everyone who enjoys the sport of ice skating.

UD's High Performance Figure Skating Center is home to some of the top figure skaters in the world. Olympians who have previously called the UD home include Tara Lipinski, Kimmie Meissner, Johnny Weir, Tiffany Scott and Philip Dulebohn, Irina Lobacheva and Ilia Averbukh, Oksana Grischuk and Evgeny Platov and Angelika Krylova and Oleg Ovsiannikov. Our coaching staff includes many world and Olympic coaches and former Olympians. During the competitive season, you can see top skaters in performance at National and World Send-Off shows, highlighting our skaters who have qualified for the National Championships and International competition.

The UD Ice Arenas also are home to many club sports that compete at the national level. Both the men's and women's ice hockey clubs, as well as the nationally ranked synchronized skating team and intercollegiate figure skating club team, practice and compete at the University of Delaware. The women's ice hockey team qualified for the national championship tournament in 2008 and 2010, and the men's team made the American Collegiate Hockey Association final four in 2003, 2007 and 2008 and was national runner up in 2001.

In addition to the excellence on the ice, the Ice Arenas offer a wide range of skating and hockey programs to fit every level of skating ability. The Learn to Skate Program is designed for the beginner or intermediate skater. The program begins by focusing on proper methods of forward and backward skating, as well as stopping and the proper way to fall. It progresses to completing the ISI skills test, essential for the more advanced skater. Classes are offered year-round. Special ice shows and competitions also are presented throughout the year.
