NCRC is conveniently located just off of Route 422, accessible from Route 219 and Route 22.

NCRC offers a variety of public programming – Learn to Skate Classes, Public Skating, Father/Son Stick Time, Drop-In Hockey Sessions, Freestyle Figure Skating, Adult Hockey League, and more. There’s something for everyone!

We also offer the opportunity for private rentals of our ice. NCRC is the ideal location for a pickup game of hockey with your friends, birthday parties (with use of our party room!), and private ice skating sessions for your school, organization, or business.

NCRC is also proud to be the home of several local school hockey programs, a youth hockey organization, figure skating club, and provides ice time to local college and junior hockey programs.

The North Central Recreation Center is the sister site of the historic Cambria County War Memorial of Johnstown, PA. NCRC is managed by SMG, the “Gold Standard” in public facility management, which is celebrating 40 years of unparalleled service in 2017.

Thank you for your interest in our center, and we hope to see you soon,
