Yost Ice Arena, Ann Arbor

4.6
Yost Ice Arena is an indoor ice hockey arena located in Ann Arbor, Michigan. It is the home of the University of Michigan varsity ice hockey team which plays in the Big Ten Conference. It has served as home of Michigan hockey since 1973–74.
Built in 1923 as a field house, the facility is named in honor of Michigan's legendary football coach and athletic director, Fielding H. Yost. For many years, it housed the Michigan men's and women's basketball teams, until those teams relocated their sporting events to the larger Crisler Arena in 1967. It also housed the track teams in the 1950s. In 1973, following the completion of the Crisler Center for basketball, it was converted into an ice arena, and the Michigan hockey team has used it ever since. The University of Michigan's Senior and Collegiate synchronized skating and freestyle teams also practice at Yost. In addition, local high school teams, recreational leagues (AAAHA) and the university's intramural hockey league call it home.
Yost Ice Arena has hosted NCAA Ice Hockey Tournament games five times in its history, most recently in 2003.

  • A must visit for hockey fans. This place is quite an experience. An old field house with large windows, the seating is pitched so steeply you feel like you're on top of the ice. The event staff? Nices...  more »

  • Beautiful building! It's a pleasure to ice skate there during open skate times. The cost is reasonable and they provide skate helpers (like a walker) for little ones learning to skate. The open skating is popular too...probably a great place to meet new people. Friendly staff. Clean. Nice venue.
  • Great open skates for "regular" people. Fun to skate on authentic college arena ice. Price way reasonable for ice time with skate sharpening offered for personal skates. Good rental skates for those who don't have their own.
