Dear Friends of Skating and Youth Sports in Our Community,
After several years of diligent work, we have great news to share about the effort to build a new ice arena and multi-use athletic complex for our region. Just this week, we closed on the purchase of 7 acres of land and the building at 20 Atwood Road in Topsham formerly known as “Roller World”. This location will be the home for Six Rivers Youth Sports which will provide skating, hockey, and a variety of athletic opportunities for more than a dozen communities in our region including Topsham, Bath, Brunswick, Freeport, Harpswell, Lisbon and beyond.
You may be familiar with our recent work as “Brunswick Landing Arena” or “Midcoast Community Ice”, both of which have now been folded into Six Rivers Youth Sports, a nonprofit corporation. Since the culmination of the most recent outdoor skating rink in March 2021, we have been working steadily and have now purchased the property, obtained Topsham subdivision and permitting approvals needed to build the new arena, and have raised more than half a million dollars in donations to advance our work.
To learn more about our plans and timeline, please visit our website and follow along on facebook and instagram for updates and opportunities to help advance our work and make our vision a reality. If you would like to make a donation in recognition of this milestone, please do so here. If you are interested in making a larger gift or would consider volunteering as a board member or on our campaign cabinet, please reach out to us.
We wish you a Happy New Year and look forward to great things in the year ahead.
