WELCOME to the SKANEATELES YMCA RINKS 

Where there is no off-season.

Not many Y’s across the country can boast they have ice facilities, we are pleased to share two state-of-the-art ice arenas with our membership and the greater community.
Welcome to our premier quality all-season NHL size ice rinks with seamless glass for ease of viewing! We offer daily recreational skating opportunities as well as regularly scheduled skate ‘n’ shoot -sessions for hockey players to practice their skills in full gear, and open freestyle sessions for figure skaters! New to skating? No worries, we have rentals and free ice walkers to get you started. 
We operate both rinks seasonally and always maintain at least one rink throughout the year.
