As a nonprofit organization, Glacier Ice Rink relies on sponsorships and advertising to offset our operational costs of providing recreational ice sports activities for our community. By becoming a sponsor, you can reach thousands of skaters, players, and spectators who visit the rink regularly each year. Sponsorship payments may be tax-deductible and include the options below:
Reach skaters and spectators alike with rink signage. Standard placement options include Zambonis, scoreboard banners, dasher board ads and signs above the players’ benches. Most advertising options are available on either the inside rink or the outside rink and include additional benefits such as skating passes and discounts on ice rentals. Costs range from $375 to $2,400 per season.
Youth Hockey Sponsorships
Nearly 600 youth of all ages and abilities participate in our hockey programs each year. Whether they’re starting out in our Learn to Play Hockey program or competing on one of our travel teams, these young athletes gain valuable sportsmanship skills, stay physically fit, and most of all, have fun! Sponsorships are available for our Learn to Play Hockey program, house and travel teams or for the eight youth tournaments we host each year. Costs range from $150 to $750 for the winter season (November-March).
Adult Hockey Sponsorships
With nearly 1,000 registered players, our adult hockey league is larger than all other Montana adult programs. Divisions are designed for all ability levels, from the novice skater to the retired pro, including women. We also host four adult tournaments each year, including the long-standing Flying Mules Hockey Festival that attracts 30 teams. Team sponsorships are $600 and tournament sponsorships are $750.
Public Skating Sponsorships
We offer public skating sessions throughout the year that attract an average of 150-200 people per weekend session during the winter. In addition to our regular sessions, we hold special events to draw a larger audience and provide additional entertainment experiences. These include Spooky Skate (October), Santa Skate (December) and Sweetheart Skate (February) as well as smaller theme nights. Sponsorships are $250 (theme night) or $500 (special event).
