Sharks Ice (formerly Logitech Ice Center) is an ice rink in San Jose, California, used as the official training facility for the NHL San Jose Sharks, and serves as the home arena for the SJSU Spartans Hockey team.

The venue is also used for public skating, public/private skating programs, hockey programs, broomball, curling, speed skating, ice dancing, and more.[1]

The U.S.S. Spartan, otherwise known as Sharks Ice at San Jose (formally known as Logitech Ice at San Jose), has been the full-time home of the San Jose State Spartan Hockey team since 2000. In 2005, with the addition of a real-live submarine klaxon, the arena was affectionately and unofficially renamed the U.S.S. Spartan. The Spartan was named "The Loudest Barn in the West" by a tally of West Region fans, and is usually packed to capacity during home games.

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 screaming 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 fabulous food, beer, and wine at reasonable prices. Patrons can enjoy the mountain chalet feel of the restaurant while enjoying their favorite sporting event, either through the windows of Stanley's that overlook three of the four rinks at Logitech Ice, or on one of their 11 plasma TVs, complete with state-of-the-art sound and satellite packages.[2]

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