Petoskey Ice Arena is a family and community activity destination for all ages in Petoskey, Harbor Springs, Charlevoix, and Northern Michigan residents. With extensive renovations completed in 2019, the facility is a premier venue for youth hockey, adult hockey, figure skating, speed skating, curling, open skating, and more.
While the arena may be open for private rental and FHA Summer Camp, the Proshop remains closed to face to face customers due to covid-19 precautions. We have implemented an online store for our customers /parents to pay for skate sharpening, tape, laces, sticks, FHA clinics, FHA summer camp concessions, and other hockey related items. Please follow the link above or below and select the items needed for purchase. We will not accept any on site payments. Once a purchase is made the Proshop will have it ready for your next visit, or they will give you a call to pick up your items. You can even pay on your mobile device and pick up your item while at the arena. If you need skates sharpened you will need to tag the skates with your name cell number and leave them on the table near the front entrance with prepayment online. They will be sharpened within 24 hrs and ready for pickup. If no payment is made online they will not get sharpened. https://petoskey-ice-arenastore.square.site
