Milford Ice Arena, owned by Black Bear Sports Group, Inc. is a multi-purpose sports facility located in Milford, Connecticut. Opened in 1975, the 36,220 square-foot facility houses one NHL-sized ice rink. Additionally, the facility is home to a number of on-site businesses including the Milford Ice Concession Stand. The ice rinks are complemented by party rooms that support a variety of corporate and community functions as well as group outings/field trips. Milford Ice Arena provides the community with various hockey and skate programs, public skating, drop ins, leagues, trade shows, and private rentals.
Black Bear Sports Group, Inc. is a Chevy Chase, MD-based company that operates sports and entertainment facilities and youth sports events. Black Bear Sports Group, Inc. was founded to purchase undermanaged and underperforming ice rinks to bring professional management and badly needed capital to 20-30 year old rinks to save the facilities and provide a safe and fun environment for the local community. We have subsequently expanded in junior hockey ownership to provide our facility participants a pathway to college hockey.
