ICE ARENA

ABOUT THE ICE ARENA

We are in the midst of raising funds for an NHL-sized indoor ice arena at Six Rivers Youth Sports in Topsham. To date we have raised over 1.3M of the 5M goal.

If you are passionate about a new ice arena in Midcoast Maine, please reach out to our team: info@sixriversyouthsports.org! We are always looking for more community members to join in our effort.

THE NEED

  • The combined regional ice time demand for youth hockey, scholastic hockey, figure skating, and
    recreational skating is more than double that which is available at Bowdoin's Watson Arena.
  • Figure skating clubs lack ice time to fully implement their programs and indoor public skating is not available
    in our region.
  • Youth hockey teams average 1.5 hours of car time for each hour of skating requiring travel to Falmouth,
    Auburn, Augusta and beyond. Some kids give up hockey altogether and others never try skating at all.
  • High school students have limited weekly practice time and rise at 4 a.m. or even earlier to practice yielding
    a sleep routine that is not compatible with rigorous academic schedules and adolescent development.

OUR VISION FOR THE FUTURE

A new indoor ice arena and multi-sport facility will become a vibrant community resource for youth and athletes of all ages to learn and enjoy healthy athletic activities close to home and alongside friends. From Brunswick to Bath, Harpswell to Topsham and beyond, the high demand for ice skating, hockey, soccer, lacrosse, field hockey, baseball, softball and more will be met with an inclusive environment that fosters youth development and healthy activities for people of all abilities and income.

YOU MAKE IT POSSIBLE
