Playing under the name of Lafayette Locomotive, HC Lafayette provides the family atmosphere expected from the YMCA as well as an experienced hockey leadership that will continue to grow the culture and programming at the Carlston Arena.
The Lafayette Locomotive name is a nod to the town’s rich railroad history that lead to the mining expansion and settlement of Colorado in the late 1800s. Lafayette’s railroads served an important role in the support of rock mines in the Rocky Mountains and built the foundation for the close-knit community that we all know and love today.
Lafayette Locomotive teams train at the Carlston Arena at the Arapahoe YMCA in Lafayette, Colorado. The Arapahoe YMCA is a branch of the YMCA of Northern Colorado.
