Private Family Rental Program Extended

First, many thanks to all who have helped keep the ice in the Memorial Sports Center by participating in the Family Rental Campaign. The response and support has been overwhelming.

Given no significant updates regarding the Governor’s orders this past week, we will be extending the private rental program for Vermont based single households through the end of December.

New reservation requests for the period from 12/16 through 12/31 will be accepted via email to starting this Sunday, Dec. 6th at 5PM. All email requests will be processed on a first-come, first-served basis. Requests made prior to that time will not be processed.

Before requesting a reservation please review for full details on the private family rentals. Then, review the MSC Master Schedule at You will see booked reservations on the master schedule. Any time slots not booked are available for family rentals. There will be a 30-minute gap between any back-to-back family rentals. Any youth hockey, MUHS and adult group slots you see through the end of the year are currently just placeholders and private family rentals can currently be booked over the top of those slots up through 12/31.

If the Governor’s orders are rescinded prior to 12/31, any family rental reservations conflicting with youth hockey, MUHS and adult group slots will be canceled. Other nonconflicting reservations will be evaluated against the regular MSC schedule demands and will be fulfilled if possible.

Also, some families have shown interest in establishing a method for making donations for families in need who would enjoy a family rental. If you or someone you know would like to make such a donation, please email with your intent.
