Breaking Ground For West Fargo’s New Hockey Facility
It wasn’t just shovels used in the ground breaking for West Fargo’s new hockey facility.
Hockey sticks were also incorporated into the $18 million facility groundbreaking.
The new space is part of the $98.1 million bond passed in November.
The new space doubles the amount of ice, letting younger children practice at more convenient times.
In the past, many younger hockey players had to practice early or late in the day to accommodate other practice schedules.
“I think it just speaks to the kind of community in which we live they support education, they support children and they understand you have to have these kinds of amenities to continue to grow and have great schools to have a great community,” says West Fargo Superintendent, David Flowers.
Flowers says other sports will also be able to use the new facility.
By simply melting the ice off, sports like baseball, soccer and softball can use the space.
The facility is expected to be completed by fall of 2017.
