Have your next party at the Berger Foundation Iceplex

Have the rink all to yourself and your friends! Enjoy 60, 75, or 90-minute ice rentals from morning to late evenings. Each rink has music, mic system, and a scoreboard.

For self-managed hockey practices/games, you get locker room access 30 minutes before and after the rental. Nets are provided, but bring your own pucks and gear. Helmets are required. 

Hosting a group open skate party? No problem! Our rink can accommodate up to 300 guests. We provide rental skates and skate aids. Upgrade your rental with rink-side catering or inquire about additional activities like broomball, curling, or shot of goal clinics in a separate section of the rink.

Broomball is great group entertainment exercise that’s played on the ice with strategies like hockey. Team players strike a ball about the size of a soccer ball with “brooms” and try to score goals into a net. Ideal for team building, corporate and community events, Broomball is designed for guests ages 12+. 

Included: 1 hour of ice, aluminum specialty brooms, 3 balls, and hockey nets.

Required: Helmets and athletic shoes

Recommended: Elbow and knee pads

To schedule a Broomball session, email the Iceplex or call 760-835-5000.

  • Broomball begins with the team defending the zone furthest from their bench during the first period of play, changing ends at the end of each period.
  • Once the game begins after a faceoff between a player from each team, each team will simultaneously attempt to score a goal in the opposition’s net whilst at the same time preventing the opposition from scoring in theirs.
  • A face off shall occur the restart the game after each goal.
  • Players can pass the ball between themselves using the stick.
  • Goals can only be scored if the ball has been hit by the stick. A goal will not be awarded if the ball has rebounded off another player.
  • Brooms may never be swung above waist height.
  • Broomball games are controlled by two referees who are on the ice during the game and have the same powers to award goals, call penalties and fouls etc. In higher-level games, there are often other officials off the rink too, such as goal judges and a timekeeper.
  • Players are allowed to use the stick to try and take the ball off opposition players.
  • At the end of the game, the team who has scored the most goals is declared the winner.
