The Pan American Arena is a twin rink ice hockey and skating arena located in downtown Indianapolis, Indiana. The arena is part of the broader Pan American Plaza, which was built in commemoration of the 1987 Pan American Games held in Indianapolis.

Pan American Arena was operated by the Indiana/World Skating Academy and has one standard 85-foot by 200-foot ice rink (NHL size) and one 100' by 200' ice rink (Olympic Games size). These high quality rinks, coupled with a research center devoted to testing skaters' athletic prowess, has established Pan American Arena as a primary training site for striving young hockey players and figure skaters.

Following the suspension of operations by the Indiana/World Skating Academy in April 2013, Pan Am Sports Incorporated assumed day-to-day operational responsibility for the ice rinks at Pan Am Plaza.[1] With the change in management, the facility was also rebranded Pan Am Pavilion and serves as the official training facility of the Indiana Ice, a member of the United States Hockey League.
