Goal & Intent

The Park/Recreation Department's goal for each program is to provide everyone with the opportunity to participate & learn the basic skills & strategies of the game. It is not our intent to have a "win at all cost" attitude. Everyone will receive the opportunity to participate. Our staff will do their best to get participants equal playing time, but it is almost impossible to have it be exactly equal. Traveling teams are the only exception to this rule.

Ice Rinks & Warming House

The Park/Recreation Department maintains two Ice Rinks at the St. Charles High School Athletic Field. The Ice Rinks typically open in mid-December & stay open through the middle of February. Operation dates are contingent on the weather.

The warming house is designed for skaters to change in & out of their skates or just warm up. We ask that people who are not using the skating facilities to please stay out of the warming house.

Enjoy the rinks & warming house. A reminder, this facility is for you. Please take care of this facility by cleaning up before you leave. The Park/Recreation Department does not provide supervision of the rinks or warming house.
