Incorporating two full-size ice rinks, with two smooth ice sheets measuring 205' x 85', the Centennial Sportsplex is your year-round center for the coolest sport, recreation, and PURE FUN in town. Attend any of our convenient public sessions and enjoy the excitement, exhilaration, and laughter of just skating. Bring a group, have a party, or join organized activities such as our Skating School (learn and perfect), hockey (play hard), or private lessons (get all the attention!). No skates? No problem. We have skate rental. We also have spectator seating, skate sharpening, and lockers. And, if ice skating makes you hungry, no need to take your skates off. Satisfaction is just steps away. Our concession stand serves everything from pizza to bagels. Come to the Centennial Sportsplex Ice Arenas and let the fun begin!!

Skating Classes

Wake up your brain and body in a different way! Improve your balance, strength, coordination, mood, and stamina (or just have fun!). Take skating classes! We have classes for you—the first-time skater or the more accomplished skater. We specialize in helping new skaters rapidly learn the basics. Our prices are affordable and our extra fees are fewer. Our Basic Skills Classes follow the United States Figure Skating (USFS) Basic Skills Program class and testing structure. Also, we offer specialized classes, practice sessions, and private training for recreational and serious competitors competing in Ice Skating Institute (ISI) and United States Figure Skating (USFS) competitions!

Private Lessons

Take Private lessons for personalized, one-on-one instruction with our highly skilled coaches. Private lessons help all levels of skaters, both figure and hockey, learn and improve difficult skills and prepare for competitions, games, and special events. As a supplement to group classes, take private lessons to earn badges faster and learn special skills not taught in class.


We offer hockey skating skills classes, open hockey sessions, adult leagues, and youth hockey through the Nashville Youth Hockey League

Skate Sharpening

We sharpen figure skates and hockey skates. Please allow 24 hours. Let us know the date and time you need to pick up your skates. We do our best to complete them in less than 24 hours, if needed.

  • Sharpening (over 24 hours): $6.00
  • Rush Charge (less than 24 hours): $2.00
  • Hollow Polish Option: $2.00
  • Excessive Damage Repair Surcharge: $2.00
  • New Blade Surcharge: $2.00

How To Tell If Your Skates Need Sharpening?

  1. Are your skates new? If so, get them sharpened. Blades as they come from the factory are usually not sharpened well, if at all.
  2. Carefully run your fingers along the edges of your blades to feel for nicks. Nicks are bad.
  3. Look at the edges for shiny spots or sections. Nicks and dull sections catch and reflect light. Sharp edges do not.
  4. About how many hours have you skated since your last sharpening? Get your skates sharpened about every 20–30 hours of skating. Hockey skaters might prefer getting their skates sharpened more often.
