Yost Ice Arena, Ann Arbor

4.6
Yost Ice Arena is an indoor ice hockey arena located in Ann Arbor, Michigan. It is the home of the University of Michigan varsity ice hockey team which plays in the Big Ten Conference. It has served as home of Michigan hockey since 1973–74.HistoryBuilt in 1923 as a field house, the facility is named in honor of Michigan's legendary football coach and athletic director, Fielding H. Yost. For many years, it housed the Michigan men's and women's basketball teams, until those teams relocated their sporting events to the larger Crisler Arena in 1967. It also housed the track teams in the 1950s. In 1973, it was converted into an ice arena, and the Michigan hockey team has used it ever since. The University of Michigan's Senior and Collegiate synchronized skating and freestyle teams also practice at Yost. In addition, local high school teams, recreational leagues (AAAHA) and the university's intramural hockey league call it home.Yost Ice Arena has hosted NCAA Ice Hockey Tournament games five times in its history, most recently in 2003.

  • What a great place to see a game. The energy is awesome and the student chants make this a place you won't forget! Go Blue!
  • Super nice ice rink. So smooth and slippery.
  • Super fun spot to ice skate at! Took my wife here on the day I proposed!
  • Best place ever! Go Blue!
  • Fantastic place to go skating, the staff is always incredibly friendly. If you want to avoid large crowds, show up to the weekday noon skates, there are only even half a dozen people on the ice and they are a great crowd.
