About Us

Kettler Capitals Iceplex is a state-of-the-art facility located atop the Ballston Common Mall Parking Garage in Arlington, Virginia.  In addition to the 20,000 square foot training center for the Washington Capitals, the Iceplex features two indoor NHL-sized ice rinks, office space, locker rooms, a full-service ProShop, a Capitals Team Store, a snack bar, and space for special events.

Kettler is easily accessible to the Ballston Metro Stop on the orange line.  Kettler is the only year round indoor ice rink in the Washington DC area that is metro accessible and is located inside the beltway. 

Kettler offers public skating, figure skating and hockey programs for youth and adults year-round.  We have daily public skating. We also have Youth House Hockey Leagues, Adult Hockey Leagues, Women's Hockey League, as well as the Sky High Skating Academy for skaters of all ages.  We are the official home of the Washington Capitals.  Capitals practices are held at Kettler and are open to the public and free of charge.

Kettler Capitals Iceplex is a Ticketmaster outlet for Capitals tickets only.  You can purchase Caps game tickets at the front desk Monday-Sunday 10am-5:00pm.  Credit card only.

New Scheduling and Enrollment System!


We have heard your concerns and are happy to announce that we are upgrading our Scheduling and Enrollment system.  It is a very exciting time for us and we are currently in the process of migrating to the new system.  We will be implementing different features as they are ready and the Rink Schedule will be one of the first to be revealed.  We appreciate your patience during this process. 

We will be migrating to the enrollment portion of the system for Adult League registration. We are currently planning to enroll for the late fall series of LTS and LTP in the new system.

In the meantime please continue to enroll in the existing system for all open programs. 

Additionally the new system will require our users to create new user accounts and we will be sending out information in the next 7-10 days with instructions on how to create an account.

Be sure to sign up to receive news from us about using our new system.
