About the Arenas
The City has two arenas, Main arena and Jack Ballantyne Memorial Arena (Youth) located at 501 King Street, that operate year round with a variety of sports, recreation and specials events. The arenas operate with ice September to late April with a full slate of ice-related organizations including Jr. B Hockey, Welland Minor Hockey Association and the Niagara Centre Skating Club.
During summer months the arenas host a number of sports including roller hockey, minor lacrosse, junior and senior lacrosse, roller hockey and ball hockey.
