The Carlston Ice Arena at the Lafayette Y is a community rink where people of all ages, all abilities and all skill levels have a safe and inclusive environment to learn new skills, build confidence, make friends and fall in love with ice sports.

From tiny skaters to adult hockey players, the Carlston Ice Arena is a place where everyone can find a passion and show some heart.
