Oceanside Ice Arena is an ice arena and skating center in Tempe, Arizona. It is home to the Arizona State Sun Devils men's and women's ice hockey teams and the Desert Youth Hockey Association.[2]

Naming[edit]

Oceanside's original name was Big Skate to match the adjacent waterpark "Big Surf" and to match the never built tennis court "Big Serve" before it was changed to Oceanside sometime before opening to match the west coast theming of the sports complex.

History[edit]

Oceanside Ice Arena opened in 1974. The arena has been home to Desert Youth Hockey Association since 1975 and the Arizona State University hockey program since its inception in 1979.

In 2015 Oceanside went under a $250,000 renovation to help bring the rink up to NCAA standards.[3]
