About Us

The Pasadena Ice Skating Center (PISC) has been located in the Pasadena Convention Center since 1976. Originally constructed in an historic exhibition hall, our new facility opened in September of 2011.

The new PISC facility is an NHL regulation size rink (200’x85’) with 4 team rooms, skate rental, party room, vending machines, pro shop, and administration office.

We continue to provide year-round recreational skating activities for skaters of all ages and ability levels. We have daily public sessions and learn-to-skate group classes for both hockey and figure skating throughout the year.  

Our facility is home to the Pasadena Maple Leafs youth hockey association, Pasadena Figure Skating Club, and the Rose City Crystals synchronized skating teams. We have over 30 adult hockey teams in 4 division levels for our in-house league. We also regularly schedule skating and broomball rentals, school field trips, fundraisers, company rentals, and film/television/commercial shoots.

Schedule and prices are subject to change. Please check our website for the current schedules or give us a call.
