As home to several Olympic, NHL, collegiate hockey players and the famous Warroad Lakers and boasting multiple high school boys and girls hockey state championships, Warroad truly lives up to its reputation as “Hockeytown USA.”
Hockey tournaments, practices, and camps are scheduled throughout the year, making Warroad an ideal place to spend time improving your game. If you’re a sports fan, you’re sure to enjoy watching all of our local teams from the Tiny Mites to the annual face-off of retired players or take part in a pond hockey tournament.
Hockey, of course, is good any time of year. Take in a game, or just visit the Gardens Arena for a complete look at the history of hockey in Warroad. With several Olympic Hockey players and Gold Medal winners having their beginnings right here in Warroad, the Gardens is truly a “Hall of Fame.” Open skating times are available at all of the arenas.
Be sure to share in our proud tradition by purchasing Hockeytown USA® souvenirs and other hockey apparel and gear from local merchants.
