Due to the state mandate & rules set forth, that are out of our control, dealing with COVID-19, we will be closing at the end of day today (3/16) through March 30th.  All programs & contracted ice are NOT canceled, but will be postponed until March 30th. Please bear with us as we reschedule and accommodate everyone. 

While we are closed to the public, we will be taking advantage of the “down time” to repaint the ice, deep, clean, and fix things up that are needed.

The East Alton Ice Arena is owned by the Village of East Alton. The Ice Arena and the Skater’s Edge Pro Shop are managed by a not for profit corporation committed to serving the local community. We offer a wide variety of activities for residents of East Alton and the surrounding area including open ice skating times, hockey stick and puck times for adults and kids, hockey leagues, skating lessons as well as event hosting.

East Alton Ice Arena is also home to organizations such as the East Alton Skating Academy and Twin Bridges Hockey Association. Both organizations run practices and other events at the arena.

Southern Illinois University Edwardsville and many of the local high school teams play their games at the arena. If you haven’t watched a hockey game up close and personal, you don’t know what you’re missing.

The Ice Arena is the perfect place to bring a large group or celebrate a birthday. It’s a great place for schools, churches and community groups to rent the arena for that special event just for your group!
