Summary of Services
The Janesville Ice Arena provides opportunities for indoor ice skating on a year-round basis. For those skaters who are looking for more than a recreational skate, we have that too! The Ice Arena is home to the Janesville Jets of the North American Hockey League. Throughout the year we offer open hockey practice and league play for adults, figure skating, youth hockey practice, special skating events and seasonal celebrations.
When is public skating available?
View the ice arena calendar, as public skating sessions vary from week to week depending on the hockey schedule.
How do I sign my child up for skating lessons?

Please view the registration form for dates and costs. You may register at the Ice Arena office or by mail. Click here for further enrollment information and registration form.

Can you tell me about your birthday party packages?

The $150 cost includes admission and skate rental for up to 15 kids, use of the party room, 2 large pizzas from Papa Johns (or hot dog and chips meals from the concession stand), two 2-liters of soda and table settings. Extra pizzas are $10 each and extra soda is $2.00. Additional participants are $5.00 per person. One week advanced booking is required. Click here to access the birthday party reservation form.
Private party packages can also be reserved for $200 or $300 dependent on ice time availability.
Is there additional parking at the Ice Arena?
Yes! The City of Janesville has an agreement to utilize the National Guard Armory's parking lot for larger events (Jets Games, Tournaments, etc.) at the Ice Arena. This overflow parking area is located at the Armory, adjacent to the Ice Arena. Fans are encouraged to use this lot if the main parking lot is full. There is a staircase that will lead right up to the Ice Arena. The area is lit at night.
