Re-Opening Dates are as follows:
North Rink Dry Floor: May 30
South Rink Ice: June 6
Summer programs are still scheduled as-is, but we have limited OIC Camp enrollment to a 20 skater max.
If you are looking to book a private ice slot from June 6-11, e-mail ozicecenter@gmail for availability.
Read the following "Returning to the Ozaukee Ice Center" for more information.
We are currently remaining closed. Both sheets of ice are out, and we can not put the investment into putting the ice back in with the uncertainty of new restrictions. When we know more and make the call to open, it takes about a week and a half to get an ice sheet in and thick enough to skate on.
We are anxious and excited to get up and running again but need to make sure the timing is right for the safety of our staff and users, and the health of the organization.
We want to provide an update on our programming at the Ozaukee Ice Center. The Wisconsin Safer-at-Home order has been extended to May 26 which unfortunately cuts too far into our Spring Programs. After reviewing a variety of alternatives, we could not find a solution that allowed us to run the programs efficiently and protect your and other participants' safety. As a result, we have come to the hard decision to cancel our Spring programming. Please know we want to get everyone back on the ice as badly as our players want to be skating again.
With the Coronavirus Pandemic and resulting Gathering Ban restrictions still in full swing, we will have a tentative re-open date of April 13. All Spring Programs will start that week and run through the second week of June, giving us our full 8/9-weeks of camps and leagues. If we have to delay longer, we will play it week by week, and once re-opened we will refund you a prorate for any lost time.
FACILITY CLOSURE ANNOUNCEMENT – OZAUKEE ICE CENTER
In these difficult and challenging times the Ozaukee Youth Hockey Association remains committed to the health and well-being of the OYHA community and all user groups of the Ozaukee Ice Center. Although we understand how much our community values its time out on the ice, we have made the difficult decision to suspend all facility programming, events and availability at the Ozaukee Ice Center through March 30 as we continue to monitor the evolving situation with COVID-19.
This decision was informed by guidance from the Center for Disease Control and made in accordance with the ban announced today by Governor Evers relating to gatherings of more than 50 people. If you have reserved and/or paid for ice time during this period of suspension, we will promptly refund such amounts and cancel the reserved ice times.
For those user groups with scheduled events over the next two weeks, we will work with you to reschedule such events as soon as possible. Further, for those who may want to reserve ice time after March 30, we will accept your reservations. In each instance, however, please note that due to the fluid nature of this situation, we may have to extend this suspension period beyond March 30, 2020, which will obviously require further rescheduling and adjustments.
We apologize for any inconvenience these measures may have on you, your family or your organization, but in the end everyone’s safety is OYHA’s paramount concern.
The Ozaukee Youth Hockey Association
At the current time, we are open as planned. For everyone’s safety, we do ask that you take extra precautions if you are a spectator or participant at the rink.
