Dallas Stars Community Ice


In accordance with Governor Greg Abbott’s plan to reopen the State of Texas, Children’s Health StarCenters and Comerica Center practice rink will begin reopening to the public Monday, May 18 and will gradually reintroduce programs and initiatives throughout the summer.

As part of this reopening plan, effective immediately the following procedures will be implemented to promote safety for customers and employees within the facilities:

Safety Measures

  • Prior to opening, all areas and surfaces within the rinks and lobbies will be sanitized and coated with ProShield 500D.
  • This sanitization includes, but is not limited to, the front desk, rental skates, floors, doors, bleachers, rink glass and boards, benches and penalty boxes, locker rooms, showers and restrooms.
  • Once open to public, staff will be sanitizing high traffic areas and surfaces every 30 minutes.
  • Masks will be required for all employees and guests in the lobby and rinks but will not be required once on the ice surface.
  • Masks will not be provided by the facilities. If patrons or guests arrive without a protective face covering, they will not be permitted into the building.
  • Hand sanitization stations will be available in the lobby and at the front desk.
