Adult Hockey Programs & Public Skate

Play where the Denver Pioneers compete, or skate in an NHL-sized arena through our public skate and adult hockey programs.


Adult Ice Hockey Leagues

If you’re 18 or older, you can play in our competitive adult hockey leagues. Whether you’re a die-hard hockey player, hobbyist or beginner, there’s a place for you within our program.

We run two adult hockey leagues (C and D divisions), two times a year:

  1. spring/summer league—running from around April through August
  2. fall/winter league—running from about September through March

Each league has 14-25 teams. We place those teams in divisions based on players’ experience and ability.

Learn more about how to join our leagues, find practice and game schedules or contact us for more information.

Learn to Play Hockey

It’s never too late to learn how to play hockey. In our adult Learn to Play Hockey program, we’ll teach you the basics of effective skating, passing and shooting.


Drop into Joy Burns Ice Arena for our public skating events to brush up on your skating skills, or skate a few laps with family and friends.

Public skate is free to Coors Fitness Center members.
