To our valued Ice Renters,

Due to the latest restrictions in the most recent Montgomery County Executive Order, Cabin John Ice Rink and Wheaton Ice Arena can no longer allow hockey practices or games until further notice. As updates become available from the Montgomery County Health Department, we will be sharing it with our hockey community through our website and contacting organizations directly. Thank you for your understanding and we look forward to getting you back on the ice.

Stay safe,
