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.



LED retro fit work is moving to the 7th level effective July 23rd and is estimated to take until the end of July 2015. During this time there will be very limited parking available on the 7th level. We advise patrons to park at lower levels and take the elevator to the rink.

Ice rink parking on 8th level will not be affected by this project. However, the garage will take all necessary safety and mark drive lanes to allow patrons to move from one level to next.

KCI will be open regular operating hours throughout this project.
