Visit Arlington to Catch Up with the Caps

Visit Arlington to Catch Up with the Caps

The Washington Capitals know how to get hockey fans’ hearts going: Hockey games, three in a row, going into overtime?

How do they get ready for games like that? Practice!

And you can see the Caps do just that every day in Arlington, where the Kettler Capitals Iceplex opens its doors not just to the NHL team, but to dedicated hockey fans interested in watching the team before they take the ice for a big game.

As the Stanley Cup playoffs continue into June, you’ll be best positioned in Arlington at Kettler Capitals Iceplex, a state-of-the-art facility located atop Arlington’s Ballston Quarter Parking Garage that is home to the 20,000 square foot training center for the Washington Capitals. The Iceplex features two indoor NHL-sized ice rinks, office space, locker rooms, a full-service ProShop, a Capitals Team Store, a snack bar, and space for special events. And when the Caps aren’t in town or aren’t practicing, Kettler offers public skating, figure skating and hockey programs for youth and adults year-round.

Stop in and watch the process that has made the Caps the Stanley Cup frontrunners and Presidents’ Trophy winners.  Fans can attend practices for free, and then lace up their own skates and take to the same ice as their favorite player.

And when the playoffs get your heart going, you can de-stress with 6:30 a.m. yoga on the Iceplex rooftop on game days. It’s free and open to the public, just RSVP.
