Public Skate

Lace up your skates, hit the ice and experience why ice skating at Daytona Ice Arena is one of Daytona's favorite activities! Bring your family, friends, a date or enjoy a solo outing, and discover why ice skating is a great activity for all ages and experience levels. Our public skate sessions are budget friendly, ALWAYS FUN and a perfect addition to a healthy lifestyle.

Ice skating dates back to around 3000 BC when skates were made from animals bones and strapped to the feet. Skates have certainly come a long way since that time, but the thrill and health benefits from skating remain the same!

Check our online calendar and then mark yours to come out and enjoy an exhilarating ice-skating experience that has been enjoyed for almost 5000 years! Because ice is slippery and injuries can happen, Daytona Ice Arena recommends all skaters wear head protection, such as a hockey or bicycle helmet. Have any other questions about public ice skating? If so, check out our frequently asked questions page, or give us a call any time!

Check out our calendar below and find a session that works for you and get ready for an exhilarating experience that you won’t soon forget! If you don’t have your own equipment, DIA has high quality skates, ice scooters and lockers available for rent.

Broomball

Broomball is an exciting and fun variation of ice hockey played on ice without skates. Brooms are used instead of hockey sticks and a soccer ball is used instead of a puck. If you just want to have some good, crazy and exciting fun without the competitive nature of hockey, Broomball is your game!

Broomball Competion

Year Round | Saturdays | 10:00pm - 11:00pm
$7.00 / Session

Consistently one of the most popular group events, Broomball is a safe, fun activity played on a roughened ice surface in regular tennis shoes. Using a broom (the broom has actually evolved into a stick with a plastic handle), you play hockey with a plastic ball. The game is similar to soccer, but a lot more fun and a bit more challenging to those without a sure foot. Broomball can be played by up to 50 participants at one time, making it an ideal, inexpensive activity for groups of nearly any size. An energetic, fun way to enjoy the excitement of ice sports without the skates!

Whether it be a corporate outing, party, team bonding, or a simple get together, broomball at the Daytona Ice Arena is sure to be a hit. Participants will split into teams and work together in unity against their opponent in a “hockey atmosphere without the skates”. Broomball is played in sneakers on the ice surface using broom-like clubs for sticks and a ball in place of a hockey puck. Helmets are required for all participants.

Rules for Safety and Fun

  • Though the ice will be roughed up before the start of your game, there may still be some areas of smooth ice on the rink. Beware of these slick areas (usually marked by cones), and do not enter these areas at a pace greater than a walk. Injuries are likely to occur if you run into cone areas. If you do slip and start to fall backwards, tuck your chin down toward your chest. Do not turn your head.
  • Sliding is dangerous to yourself and others, and is prohibited while playing.
  • Sticks or brooms must be kept below the waist at all times.
  • Throwing the stick at the ball or to the ice surface is illegal.
  • Kicking the broomball is illegal. However, you may use your foot to stop the ball.
  • Broomballs above waist height can be stopped with the hands and dropped to the ice. Don't catch and throw the ball or bring your stick up. The only player who may handle or move the ball forward with the hands is the goalie. The goalie may move the ball forward as long as he keeps it below everyone's waist. Don't throw the ball over players' heads.
  • Stay at least 5 feet away from the goalie as this person generally plays the position on his/her knees. Stick swinging around the goaltender is dangerous and should be avoided.
  • Players should wear a helmet at all times. Kneepads, elbow pads and mouthpieces are also recommended but not provided.
  • No checking.
  • Must sign a waiver.
  • Have fun!
