Aurora Skate Center has been a community resource since 1955. We pride ourselves on our hardwood maple floating floor (81x174; considered a large intermediate sized floor).


Joey Mantia holds a record number of National Championships, 28 World Championships, three Pan American championships, still holds five world speed records, and was on this year's Olympic Ice Speed Skating Team. He was named American Speed Skater of the Year four times between 2003 and 2007, AND, he's a genuinely nice guy. Get ready for a two-day clinic this weekend on May 3rd and 4th.
