Olympic Oval

Ice-In July 29, 2024

The Olympic Oval is working hard to ensure the 2024/2025 season is ready. However, due to extenuating circumstances, the ice installation must be delayed by one week. This delay will give the Operations team enough time to ensure the highest quality ice for the upcoming season.

We understand that this delay may cause some inconvenience, and we sincerely apologize for the delay. Our new ice-in date is Monday, July 29th, 2024.

Feature Events and Competitions

Come Skate With Us

Recreational Skating

Recreational skating is more than just fun — its amazing for your cardiovascular health. Your legs are in continuous motion and your core is constantly engaged, helping to get your heart rate up and boost your blood circulation. With its focus on lower-body movement, skating workouts are a great way to boost your leg muscles, helping to strengthen your calves, quads, and hamstrings. It’s also fantastic for your abdominal muscles, so if you get good enough, a six-pack might be in your future?

Come Run With Us

Recreational Running

Calgary can be pretty cold sometimes but we have the perfect solution — Indoor Recreational Running.

Running can significantly improve physical and mental health. As a form of aerobic exercise, running can reduce stress, improve heart health, and even help alleviate symptoms of depression. Some researchers think running may be so good for us because it's something we evolved to do.

University of Calgary Land Acknowledgement

The University of Calgary, located in the heart of Southern Alberta, both acknowledges and pays tribute to the traditional territories of the peoples of Treaty 7, which include the Blackfoot Confederacy (comprised of the Siksika, the Piikani, and the Kainai First Nations), the Tsuut’ina First Nation, and the Stoney Nakoda (including Chiniki, Bearspaw, and Goodstoney First Nations). The City of Calgary is also home to the Métis Nation of Alberta (Districts 5 and 6).

The Olympic Oval

The Oval is an extraordinary place. It was built for the '88 Winter Olympics but it has become so much more—a place to connect with the community, the University and of course a high-performance sport.
