luke gearing up to go on the ice

Too often, Andrea Chaffee, the business and marketing director for Madison Ice Inc., hears about people with disabilities being told they can’t participate. In contrast, Madison Ice Arena offers programs that allow everyone to participate, regardless of mobility.

Madison Ice Arena first offered an adaptive learn-to-skate class in 2008. Since then, the arena has gone through changes to allow for more adaptive opportunities, including a $1.2 million renovation in 2016 to make the arena ADA-compliant, which included redoing youth locker rooms, the lobby, public bathrooms and the parking lot to add more accessible spaces.
