ICE

The Carlston Ice Arena at the Arapahoe Y in Lafayette is a community rink where people of all ages, all abilities and all skill levels have a safe and inclusive environment to learn new skills, build confidence, make friends and fall in love with ice sports. Our ice programs are not simply about developing better skaters; we are working to empower youth, nurture positive values and build a community. From tiny skaters to adult hockey players, the Carlston Ice Arena is a place where everyone can find a passion and show some heart.
