I'm new to hockey. Where is the best place to sit?
Good Question! Everyone is different and the Bucs' staff is here to help.
Feel free to ask anyone at the ticket window for their advice and if you
come prior to the game day we'll be more than happy to give you a quick
tour of seating options.
Where is Parking Available? There is plenty of parking available around Buccaneer Arena. The arena
itself has a "pay-to-park" lot. Other options include the spacious K-Mart
and Sherwood Forest lots located across the street which are free. Other
businesses also provide parking options but do charge a fee.
Fans are asked to be considerate of our residential neighbors on the
north side of the building when parking on side streets.
What if I purchased tickets and can't make the game?
The Des Moines Buccaneers don't offer refunds on tickets. In the event you
can't make a game, the Bucs recommend giving your tickets away. For season
tickets holders only, there is a redemption policy on unused tickets.
In the rare event a game is postponed due to weather, or any other reason,
information regarding your tickets will be available on the website.
Is an ATM available?
During Buccaneer games, there are two ATM's located in the concourse
Can I meet/talk to the players?
Of course you can and we are more than happy to help facilitate your
chances to meet players at games and public appearances. Players are
available for autographs and conversation after EVERY home game. We
also promote all of our public appearances which is actually the best
time to meet your favorite players.
I want to play for the Bucs. How can I sign up?

The team also hosts a tryout camp each June in Urbandale. If you are
interested in a spot with the team, please contact the coaching staff or

open skates. It is also available for tournaments and other ice events.

Do you offer public skates

offer a public skating period. HOWEVER, the Des Moines Buccaneers do
have regular "post-game skates with the team". Please check the team's
promotional schedule for more information.
Do you have a pro shop on site?
