Outdoor Rink Weather Policy:

The District Education Center Rinks policy for the upcoming season is:

MYHA will make a decision if the weather is too severe to cancel all outdoor practices which are scheduled that day/evening.  The DEC Rinks will remain open to use at your players own risk.  If the weather is so severe, the warming house staff decides to close the rinks and warming house, it will be posted on this page.  Also, if the Briarwood gate is closed, the rinks are closed. Please check daily for updates.

Note: Rink and warming house opening depends on weather conditions. The rinks/warming house are closed if temperatures reach -10 degrees real or wind chill, if snow accumulation is greater than two inches, or if a thaw causes significant standing water. Rinks close Feb. 15, unless weather permits them to remain open longer.

Information from Community Education:

The entrance to the rinks is found by driving north on Mahtomedi Avenue, turn right on Quail Street, travel two blocks then turn right (east on Briarwood Avenue). The rink entrance is on the right.

Operation of the outdoor DEC rinks/warming house is a cooperative effort of the City of Mahtomedi, Mahtomedi Hockey Association and Mahtomedi Community Education. 


We now have a Zamboni for our Outdoor Rinks

Recent Rink Upgrades

The Mahtomedi Youth Hockey Association and City of Mahtomedi are very proud of our 3 outdoor rinks. 

Over the last few years, MYHA, with the help of our members, has made significant upgrades to the DEC Rinks:

  • The warming house size was doubled
  • All three rinks have had concrete poured to make it easier to build and maintain the ice. 
  • MYHA purchased a Zamboni in 2012 that makes great ice for our players and the citizens of Mahtomedi.

See the 'Outdoor Rinks' page for more information on regular operating hours, weather hotline and more.

Helmets are REQUIRED for all MYHA Players/Coaches at the DEC.
