Solar4America Ice at San Jose (formerly the Ice Center of San Jose, Logitech Ice Center, and Sharks Ice at San Jose) is an indoor ice rink in San Jose, California, United States. The largest ice rink facility in the Western United States, Solar4America Ice serves as the official training facility for the NHL San Jose Sharks and the home arena for San Jose State University's Spartans hockey team. The facility opened in 1994 and was expanded in 2000 and 2005. Roofing contractor PetersenDean bought naming rights to the facility in 2016, renaming the facility after its Solar4America solar roofing brand. [1] [2]

The venue is also used for public skating, public/private skating programs, hockey programs, broomball, curling, speed skating, ice dancing, and more. [3]

Remodeled in the summer of 2005, the nearly 170,000 square-foot facility features four (4) NHL-sized ice rinks (the Spartans play on the North Rink, which has a listed seating capacity of approximately 550, but is routinely packed with upwards of 1000 fans on game nights), as well as a full-service Pro Shop, a full-service Food Court, a video arcade, and meeting space for up to 500 guests.

Additionally, Stanley's Sports Bar & Grill, opened in January 2006, features food, beer, and wine. [4]

In 1995, the arena hosted the Women's Pacific Rim Championship ice hockey tournament.
