Our Dream

The Winthrop Ice & Sports Rink is an outdoor facility which has rapidly become Winthrop's social hub for recreation and family fun.  In the winter months it is used for ice-related sports such as skating, hockey, and broomball. During the summer, it is used for soccer camps, outdoor movies and concerts. This rink was created by the community for the community!  Enjoy.

The Rink is available for special events rental. The facility has indoor restrooms, a viewing room (capacity 50) and skate rental shop. 

Youth Hockey Program The USA Hockey program is for kids ranging from 5 to 15 yrs. (we have expanded the age range to allow for older kids to continue)

The program is open to both boys and girls regardless of ability. All beginners are welcome. The program focus is on skating development, general rules understanding and game play, all in a fun and lively setting outside at the Winthrop Rink

Men’s & Women’s Hockey Program Adult pick-up hockey runs through-out the winter season. See the schedule for pick-up times. Full gear recommended.

Learn to Skate Program The Methow Valley ice rink will host a 4-week ice skating program for all ages and abilities starting Saturday, December 18 from 1-4pm. Cost is $50 per participant, which includes US Figure Skating association registration and basic insurance.  Rental skates are available at the rink To register, contact Ann Sprague, 509-322-3900 or mail in the registration form.

Safety considerations:
1. Head injuries are common on hard ice surfaces. Helmets are recommended during open public skate for beginner skaters,  and required for all hockey activities.
2. The Winthrop Rink is an outdoor rink. Natural variables in temperature and precipitation may influence and alter the daily rink schedule and ice conditions.
3. Supervision of kids is a parent responsibility. Please do not drop off and leave kids that may need supervision
