The Glacier Ice Rink is a two-sheet ice arena located in Missoula, Montana. It is operated by the Missoula Area Youth Hockey Association (MAYHA), a non profit organization whose mission is to "provide recreational opportunities for learning and playing the game of hockey and other ice skating activities for children and adults in our community." The rink is open 10 months a year and offers youth and adult hockey leagues, hockey tournaments and public skating sessions. Glacier Ice Rink is also home to the Missoula Figure Skating Club, the Missoula Curling Club, the Missoula Referees Association, and the Women's Hockey Association of Missoula (WHAM). From 2007 to 2016, it was also home to the Missoula Maulers junior hockey team before the team owner and the MAYHA had a contract dispute and the team was shut down.[1] The Maulers were quickly replaced with an expansion team in the North American 3 Hockey League named the Missoula Bruins as an extension of the Bruins youth hockey organitzation.[2]
