The Everett Arena offers ice skating from mid-September through mid-March. During the ice skating season, the arena offers public skating, stick practice, skating lessons for beginners, learn to play hockey, travel youth hockey, and high school hockey.

Everett Arena Reopening for Public Skating & Stick Practice

Public ice skating and stick practice will return on November 2, 2020. The extended suspension of ice skating and stick practice is to allow time for notification to the public of new testing requirements. Individuals that participated in ice activities (including public ice skating and stick practice) prior to October 15 are required to have a negative COVID-19 test result on or before November 6 (and be able to provide documentation if required to DHHS). The test should be performed after the 2-week pause (October 15) and can either be PCR or Antigen based (rapid test). A person is exempt if they have previously tested positive in the three months prior to October 15. Face masks or facial coverings are now required while on the ice for public ice skating in addition to the existing requirement to wear masks / coverings while in the facility. Please note that Sunday public skating sessions will be reduced to 1 hour and 30 minutes from 5:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. to allow additional time for cleaning as required by state guidelines before the next scheduled event at the arena. 

There have not been any known COVID-19 cases linked to the Everett Arena. The Everett Arena has been exceeding all guidelines for cleaning and sanitization, has had safety measures in place for increased air filtration, and will also now be implementing a new screening kiosk for improved COVID-19 screenings with touchless temperature taking. Everyone that enters the arena will be required to be screened and have their temperature taken at the kiosk in the front entrance lobby.

Ice operations will resume in accordance with all CDC, State of New Hampshire, and City of Concord guidelines for COVID-19. Masks will be required at all times during public skate and are recommended (but not required) for stick practice, all guests must complete a screening for COVID-19, social distancing should be maintained while on and off the ice, and all groups will enter the building through the main entrance and exit through the side doors.
