Home of Appleton Family Ice Center & Tri-County Ice Arena

Appleton Ice, Inc. is a non-profit organization that operates Appleton Family Ice Center (AFIC) in Appleton’s Memorial Park and Tri-County Ice Arena (TCIA) in Neenah. We provide a fun, safe and healthy environment in which children and their families can experience a truly enjoyable ice skating and hockey experience. We pride ourselves on our friendly, enthusiastic staff; our ability to deliver expert instruction and guidance to our community; and our exciting schedule of programs, leagues and events for all ages to enjoy year round.

    Public Skate

    Public Skate times offered at Appleton Family Ice Center:

    Monday-Friday 11:00 a.m.-12:50 p.m   Sundays: 3:00 p.m.-4:50 p.m.

    Public Skate is offered to the entire community and the cost is $5.00* admission for everyone who skates on the ice.  Should you need to rent skates the cost is an additional $3.00.

    For those who may be frequent visitors to our Public Skating sessions, we offer a 10 punch card and a season pass.

    Due to the high volume of ice rentals during the winter some changes might apply. The changes will be listed on our website, and I encourage you to check the DAILY ice schedule so you have the most current information on Public Skate days/times.

    Music is provided by the ice arena for those to enjoy while skating.  If there is no one else on the ice, it is acceptable to change the music. However, as other skaters get on the ice, the music must be changed back to the selected arena music. We ask that you respect everyone who comes to enjoy public skating.

    Also, pucks will only be allowed when no one else is on the ice or when other skaters want to skate with a puck.  When other skaters arrive, all pucks must be removed from the ice. However, skating with a stick only is permitted.

    The employees of the arena will try to always have the ice resurfaced before Public Skate, but there may circumstances that arise when it's not possible.  We ask for your help to make Public Skate an enjoyable experience for all who attend.

    As a reminder, check the daily ice schedule on our website for current information.

    *Admission prices may vary for Special Events.
