Welcome to UBC Hockey & Skating programs!

UBC Recreation’s ice based programs include hockey and skating lessons for youth and adults. We also offer drop-in sessions of public skating, figure skating, hockey, and stick & puck. Our dynamic range of hockey and skating programming can accommodate people of all ages and skill levels. Whether it’s your first time on the ice, or you’re looking to refresh your hockey skills, we have a program for you! All ice programs operate out of the Doug Mitchell Thunderbird Sports Centre.
