The Ice Dens no longer offer birthday party packages in conjunction with public skate sessions.
As we redefine our ice sports business while labor shortages and supply chain disruptions continue to be unpredictable our focus is to schedule and offer only those events we are confident our team can staff and host effectively. This includes:
Based on availability, the Ice Den Scottsdale and Ice Den Chandler offer private ice rental for special events & functions. Private ice rentals offer the opportunity for your group to have exclusive access to one sheet of ice to ice skate, play hockey or broomball. It is a fun and unique way to celebrate birthday parties, family reunions and corporate outings.
Due to recent changes to the amount of ice surfaces in the Valley, with no ice install at Desert Diamond Arena (formerly Gila River Arena) and the recent permanent closing of Oceanside Ice Arena, private ice rental options when available will be EXTREMELY LIMITED. We appreciate your patience and flexibility during the booking process and encourage you to research other venue options for your event should your request not be accommodated.

Broomball is an ice-based game that is closely related to ice hockey and was founded in Canada.
Broomball is a team game with two opposing sides of six players played on an ice hockey rink. Unlike ice hockey, in which players wear ice hockey boots, in Broomball, players wear special rubber soled shoes and use a stick called a ‘broom’ with a triangular head to hit a small ball on the ice. Aiming to win the game by scoring more points than their opponents, Broomball, like its close relative, ice hockey, is a very physical game.
OBJECT OF THE GAME:
The object of Broomball is for one team to win the game by scoring more goals than their opposition. Teams do this by moving the ball up-field as a team until they are in a position to shoot for goal. Teams, whilst attacking the opposition goal must also be prepared to defend their goal quickly if they lose possession of the ball. Like ice hockey, Broomball is an extremely physical game that can get extremely rough at times.
Each team has six players comprised of:
1 = goalie
2 = defense
3 = offense
For broomball, sneakers with rubber sole are mandatory, active wear layers and any personal protective equipment is encouraged.
*Brooms should never be swung above waist height.
A goal (one point) scored every time a team manages to hit the ball past the opposition's goalkeeper and across the net’s goal line.
To win a game of Broomball, a team must work together to score more points than their opponent. At the end of the game, the team with the most amount of points is declared the winner.
A partner with the Ice Den Scottsdale since the early 2000s, the Coyotes Curling Club outgrew our facility as the sport attracted a larger membership in the Valley. As a result, we no longer have the equipment, instructors or ice markings to curl at the Dens.
In 2018, the club renovated and retrofit a building to open a dedicated curling venue in Tempe. It is home to the club, its leagues, special events and they host "Learn to Curl" activities. Club members will walk you through the rules, teach you technique and then you’ll hit the ice for your first lesson!
