For Hockey Buffs

As the only NHL regulation-sized rink available to the public, Chaparral Ice functions as the rink-of-choice for a variety of athletic groups. Its most high-profile residents are the American Hockey League's Texas Stars professional team and the University of Texas club team, both of whom practice at the facility. Chaparral Ice also hosts a variety of amateur teams, from 5-year-old “Mini-Mites” up to adult recreational leagues.

With programs catering to both recreational and competitive players, Chaparral has something for hockey buffs of any skill level who want the same ice experience as the local pros. Fittingly, Chaparral Ice is home to the Texas Junior Stars, Austin’s highest-level competitive youth hockey club whose staff includes former pros and NCAA Division 1 coaches. In 2017, the introduction of Smarthockey and the Francis Wathier Hockey Academy training and instruction programs is set to propel Chaparral Ice’s leagues and players to new heights.
