The State of Illinois has moved every region into COVID-19 Tier 3 Mitigation measures effective Friday 11/20, details of which can be found here.


These mitigations call for a pause in all youth and adult sports for at least 14 days, so Fifth Third Arena will be unable to host team practices, drop-in sessions, and group training from 11/20 – 12/4. The State will then reassess the situation, as will our facility team, and our hope is to be able to reopen at that time if the State’s current mitigation measures are lifted for the Chicago region.


In place of normal group practice ice, Fifth Third Arena will be offering private lesson ice in compliance with current mitigation guidelines.  The facility can offer ice for up to four skaters and four coaches per hour.  Players will be expected to remain in one quadrant of the ice and avoid coming within 6’ of other players and coaches.  Additionally, players and coaches will be expected to wear their masks both on and off the ice.  If you are interested in individual training sessions, please contact the rink at 312-455-7600 and we can provide additional information and available times.  Private ice will need to be booked in advance to remain in compliance with current mitigation guidelines. 


We understand that this is difficult news to receive. Fifth Third Arena is committed to reopen as soon as State and Local guidance permits. We remain confident in all our COVID-19 Safety procedures and look forward to welcoming everyone back to the rink as soon as we are able.


Thank you for your understanding and continued patronage of Fifth Third Arena.
