Hey everyone. I moved here from Austin and I live in the Arlington area near I-20 and Cooper St. I was wondering if anyone here plays ice hockey in the area and could get me more information about places to play.

I am 30 years old and usually play in B league so Intermediate player. Enough to be competitive but no highlight reel goals here. More of a beer league player.

I am looking for information ranging from quality of Ice, price, age range, quality of the adult leagues, pick up hockey, and places to play.

So far I have found a rink at the Parks Mall, and the Dr. Pepper Stars Center in either Grapevine or Euless I guess. But I have no idea what is good around here.

If anyone has any information please let me know.

Thanks

The Dr. Pepper Star Centers are also very good.

Go over to the Dallas Stars website and check out their forum. Several of their members play hockey and could probably tell you every league around here.

You found the right places - Dr Pepper Star Centers in Euless, I don't think the Grapevine Mills rink is a Dr Pepper Star Center, but there are 2 rinks there. Farmer's Branch might work for you as well, it's right off of 635 & 35, Duncanville might be another option as well. Welcome to the Dr Pepper StarCenter

There is also Ice Training Center in Richardson (might be too far but here's a link anyways for info) IceTrainingCenter Richardson, TX (972)680-7825

There is also Addison Square Garden Addison Square Garden Ice Skating Rink - Addison, TX - Dallas County

You should be able to call around to the above places and get more specific info.

I play in the B league out of Star Center Farmers Branch, though some of our games are in Plano or Frisco. B is pretty high level, with many ex competitive players, even some ex Stars.

That is pretty cool. Thank You. I did find a league at the Dr. Pepper StarsCenter in Euless which is close to me. I live in Arlington. B League is way above my level. I am in a good C League and the team I picked up on VBB has been a great group in our first season.

I also do some pick up or stick and puck at the Parks Mall since it is the closest.

Thanks for all of the feedback and see you on the Ice!!!
