Gila River Arena

9400 W Maryland Ave

Where to be & When

  • Gila River Arena Address: 9400 W. Maryland Ave. Glendale, AZ 85305
  • Parking: The parking lots in front of the Renaissance Hotel on the West side of the arena (Lot 3 in the Parking Map)
  • We can begin letting teams down to the locker rooms as a team 1 HOUR PRIOR to your scheduled start time, but due to a lack of space, it is recommended that any dryland warmups be done outside of the entrance prior to going down.
  • Enter through GATE 3, which is located on the Northwest corner of the arena behind McFaddens Bar, closest to Lot 3
  • There is a security bag check (yes, this includes hockey bags), and so please factor that in to your travel time

Arena Guidelines

  • *Mandatory* - All players, coaches, team managers, penalty box attendants, or anyone going on the ice MUST fill out the attached liability waiver and turn in upon arrival. Any player, coach, or staff member who does not have a waiver filled out will not be allowed on to the ice or bench until doing so.
  • The attached “Arena Guidelines” document is for you, the coach or team manager, and your parents to review so that you are aware of all arena rules
  • Due to arena security protocols, all family, friends, etc. who wish to watch the game are asked to please remain in the two center ice sections (111, 112).Outside food and drinks (non-alcoholic) are allowed in the arena.
  • Due to both security measures and space in the locker rooms, we ask that only essential personnel go down to the locker rooms with the players. This means coaches and team managers only. Younger teams are allowed to bring a small number of parents to help with skates/equipment.
