In August 2014, the East Side Youth Sports Foundation purchased the Grosse Pointe Community Rink and renamed it The ESH Ice Arena. The purchase protected the Bulldogs Hockey Club from losing its home rink and ensured that the legacy of hockey on the east side of metropolitan Detroit will continue for generations.
The arena is currently home to 1,000+ members of the Bulldogs Hockey Club including the Bulldogs, Lady Bulldogs, adult leagues and Learn to Play Hockey 8U program as well as the Grosse Pointe North Girls Hockey Team and the Grosse Pointe South Girls Hockey Team.
Since the acquisition in 2014, the arena has seen hundreds of thousands of dollars of updates including a renovated lobby, bathrooms, cooling tower and much more. Stay tuned for additional information regarding renovations!
