“Olympic Training Venue”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

Want to see future Gold Medal Olympians at work? Just learning or want a family birthday event. This is the place. Large arena, rentals, fun atmosphere. Try it when you have an afternoon and want something different.

“College Hockey”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2012

This is the home to the University of Delaware Mens and Womens hockey teams. It is a wonderful place to see old fashioned college hockey. Never too crowded but a fun evening of hockey.

“Good ice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012

Isn't as crowded at the Pond and the hours are more flexible due to not always having hockey games/tournaments.

“continues to improve”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012

This has something for everyone. If you skate, try the rentals and get out there no matter how long it has been. If you don't skate, go to watch during a practice session of figure skating.
