Should there be an indoor ice rink built in Ladysmith?


Submit Survey  View Results

IIHF Arena Manual

Ever thought of building an ice rink?

The rink is the key to all hockey development
In the beginning, ice hockey had its definite limits. It could only be played in places where you had natural ice from December until at the latest March. And those were the long seasons! This is why North America, Scandinavia, the former Soviet Union and a handful of other countries had an early jump in this game. Today, the International Ice Hockey Federation has 70 national member federations. Some of the countries with hockey programs and leagues include the United Arab Emirates, Israel, South Africa, Australia and Singapore. In the United States, there is high level ice hockey played in cities like Los Angeles, Tampa and Dallas. The reason, of course, is rinks with artificial ice. Only some ten years ago, ice hockey in some of the places mentioned above was a good joke. Not anymore. Rinks with artificial ice can be built anywhere, even in the desert or south of the equator.

The problems associated with building artificial ice rinks could be summarized in these two questions:
1. How do we start ?
2. Isn't it far too expensive ?

In order to show communities all over the planet that an ice rink is not one of the seventh wonders of the world, the IIHF decided to put a group of experts together to create a rink manual. The goal of the manual is to help communities and hockey enthusiasts to build ice rinks in their neighborhoods, at reasonable costs. This manual targets ice hockey clubs with an ambition to build a community rink, the decision makers within communities or municipalities, and construction entrepreneurs. As the President of the International Ice Hockey Federation I am proud to present this manual: "Ever thought of building an ice rink"? This is the first manual of its kind in regards to ice rinks.

IIHF President

 

IIHF Arena Online Guide

In 2011 the IIHF launched its new online IIHF Arena Online Guide.

The first-ever online-only version of the IIHF’s Guide to building an ice hockey arena was a complete rework and reinterpretation of the old IIHF Arena Manual.

The guide features drawings, images, technical details, and facts for each of four types of arena projects, ranging from “Small” to “XL”. Through this online platform, the user will also be able to access latest news and information, and to view updates in the technology and building techniques for ice hockey arenas.

The Arena Guide can be viewed at arenaguide.iihf.com.
