City of Greeley officials will reopen the Greeley Ice Haus, 900 8th Ave. on Monday, Aug. 24, 2020.
The Ice Haus is uniquely situated to offer public skating sessions, programs, and community engagement, all while following CDC and social distancing guidelines. The Ice Haus is also home to the Northern Colorado Eagles, UNC Club Hockey, Greeley Youth Hockey Association, Mountain View Skating Club, and the Greeley Growlers.
Due to constraints related to COVID-19, many City facilities have limited recreational spaces available. The Ice Haus offers a safe and accommodating environment for youth and adults to recreate but with additional COVID-19 related limitations. In addition, the Ice Haus continues to provide new and innovative experiences for the users, including a new off-ice training area featuring a synthetic ice shooting enclosure.
Facility Operations and Restrictions
The Ice Haus opens with limited hours and provides public skating, figure/freestyle, drop-in hockey, and stick & puck times to sign up for in advance. Public skate sessions have a maximum capacity of 35 skaters, and all other activities have a maximum of 25. Skaters may register for sessions on, GreeleyIceHaus.com.
Priority is granted to visitors who pre-register online. Walk-in customers may skate in sessions with available capacity. If fully booked, a 15-minute wait period occurs before walk-in skaters participate. Any pre-registered users who do not show up within 15 minutes of the start of a session forfeit the reservation. At the end of the timed block, all members and guests must leave the premises immediately.
Masks are required on and off the ice. Staff asks that visitors come dressed in appropriate attire for their activity. Locker rooms are closed except for leagues and hockey rentals. The facility offers minimal storage for personal items. Skates and skate trainers are available for rent. No other equipment is provided.
No spectators are allowed in the Ice Haus at any time. Parents and guardians, please plan to skate during the on-ice activity or drop off skaters if not participating.
A 30-minute cleaning session immediately follows all of the timed blocks. Staff cleans equipment, contact surfaces, and high traffic areas with disinfectant. Officials encourage visitors to use the hand sanitizer stations available in the facility.
