The Wallowa Valley Community Ice Rink came to be what it is today out of a love for pond hockey. After many years of making do playing hockey on Slinker’s Pond, this small group of hockey lovers & community supporters decided to build a rink out of a bunch of plywood and a large plastic liner. The City of Enteprise gave the OK to set up in the city park, and in the fall of 2001, our local ice rink was born, giving the “Baja Canada Hockey League” and all community skaters a much-needed outlet for winter recreation.

Adult hockey still has a large presence at the Wallowa Valley Community Ice Rink, with scheduled slots for pickup games of Open/ Beginners’ and Intermediate/Advanced Hockey. Additionally, when the Baja Canada Hockey wallowa-valley-ice-rink-baja-canada-hockey-leagueLeague is feeling overconfident in their mediocre skills, they will host special games with out-of-town teams. When they are more realistic about their talent, they will invite other teams to skate at the rink, which the Portland Winterhawks have done in the past.

Youth Hockey also is popular at WVCIR, with regularly scheduled instruction & scrimmage for kids on Fridays, when school is not in session in Wallowa County (no Youth Hockey in 2015-2016 season). Youth Hockey is open to youth of all ages, but the Advanced Adult Hockey times are open only to players 14 and over. For all of these friendly hockey games, helmets are required and checking is not allowed.

The hockey schedule is as follows:
Advanced Adult Coed Hockey: Mon & Wed nights from 7-9pm, Sat mornings from 9-11am
