Due to Governor’s current executive order for indoor fitness facilities and gyms, the WSCC Recreation Center and the Ice Arena remain closed at this time. We have paused our reopening plans, however we look forward to welcoming you back once we are allowed to reopen. We will continue to communicate as new information is available.
The West Shore Community Ice Arena is home to the West Shore Wolves Amateur Hockey Association, Manistee Chippewa Junior Varsity and Varsity Hockey programs.
The arena was opened in 2002, and was entirely funded from private individuals and businesses from the community, as well as a grant from the State of Michigan.
Monday Night Hockey is a team league format where you form a team and register to play. Contact the Ice Arena for more information on how to organize or join a team.
The Wednesday Night League is for beginner/intermediate skaters and you register as an individual to be placed on one of several teams. The Ice Arena staff will divide the teams up according to the skill levels of participating skaters. West Shore Community Ice Arena also hosts an adult men’s tournament every year during the month of March.
The Fenstermacher Cup Tournament targets various skill levels as it operates three weekends of hockey starting with the B Division, B+ Division and then the 35 and older B Division.
For older skaters, there are two options including the Manistee JV and Varsity hockey teams who call West Shore their home rink.
We offer a Learn to Skate Program and an eight (8) and under developmental hockey program that is a great way to introduce kids to the sport of hockey. This program runs from October to the beginning of March with a very low financial commitment and there are rental equipment bags available.
Another great feature is a Skating Grant Program for low to moderate income families who may not be financially able to afford the fees associated with hockey.
