About the Pee Wee Arena

The Soo Pee Wee Arena began as the dream of several community members who saw the need for another indoor ice arena in Sault Ste. Marie. These visionaries secured community support, funding and volunteer material and labour to construct the facility in 1965 which continues to play an important role in our community today.

Our facility features a regulation 85x185 foot rink, with a seating capacity of 800, and standing room for 200. The Arena also features ample parking, an on site pro shop, skate sharpening service, engraving service, concessions, and a full service bar and restaurant overlooking the rink.

The Arena is open from the first week of July through the last week of April, and is open daily from 6:00am to 1:00am, providing 17 hours of bookable ice time every day. To book ice time, click on Ice Rentals.

The Soo Pee Wee Arena is a non-profit facility which has been providing wholesome, community oriented sports and recreation for over 45 years. It is home to the Soo Pee Wee Hockey League which has grown over the years from 35 boys to over 850 boys and girls. Additional activities include mens and womens recreational hockey, figure skating, power skating, adult and youth hockey tournaments and the annual spring Midway.

The Soo Pee Wee Arena and Hockey League has produced Stanley Cup Champions Ron Francis, Tyler Kennedy and Paul DiPietro as well as many other NHL players along with numerous pros who play in Europe and North America.

Arena operations are directed by the Arena Manager who reports to the Board of Directors. The Board of Directors are made up of volunteers who are appointed by previous Board members. Board members, along with staff in some cases, make up several standing committees such as Health and Safety, Management, Fund Raising and Building committees. The Pee Wee Arena is self sufficient and receives no government funding. It remains successful because of the utilization of a streamlined operation and the hard work and dedication of its Board of Directors, its staff and this community.
