Vital Hub for Scottish Ice Hockey and the Community at Risk of Closure

Scottish Ice Hockey is deeply disappointed to learn of the planned closure of Ayr Ice Rink. Ice Hockey in Scotland and across the UK is on a positive track with a strong post COVID recovery for the sport and significant success at an international level over recent months.

Ice Hockey in Scotland is already challenged with the competing need for ice time and facilities and we cannot afford to lose another facility. Ayr Ice Rink supports over 100 Ice Hockey players across Junior and Recreational clubs as well as providing a home for ice skating clubs and therefore playing a vital role and access to not only ice sports but improved health and wellbeing opportunities in the local community.

SIH would like to work with the current owners and any other groups and agencies to prevent the closure of the facility.

SIH National Programme is recruiting. 

The 22/23 season saw us recruit many new faces into our national programme for the first time in years. This is something we want to continue with as we grow the programme. 

As well as L2/L3 hockey coaches we are really interested in adding more NM and Strength and conditioning coaches. 


Anyone interested please email your contact details, current coaching level and a brief of your experience to
