Welcome to the Slater Family Ice Arena!  

Located on the campus of BGSU in Bowling Green, Ohio, the Slater Family Ice Arena has been serving the University and local communities for 53 years since our grand opening in February of 1967. The BGSU Ice Arena was named Slater Family Ice Arena in 2017 in honor of a transformative gift from Scott Slater and his family that was designed to advance the future of the facility.

The 50-year legacy of Bowling Green’s beloved Ice Arena lives on as we begin the next 50 years of excellence and service to the community.

We are home to the NCAA Division I Falcon Hockey team, which is a member of the Western Collegiate Hockey Association (WCHA). We’re also home to multiple high school hockey teams, the Bowling Green Skating Club and the Bowling Green Youth Hockey Association. There is a variety of highly popular programs offered here, including Public Skate, Learn to Skate lessons, Youth Hockey, Figure Skating and Adult Hockey. Come visit the Slater Family Ice Arena for one of our exciting programs, or one of the special events we host throughout the year!
