the epitome of modern excellence

the need

At Orono Rink, our hockey program has grown beyond expectation, with over 700 skaters making use of a single sheet of ice in our vibrant community. Additionally, the neighboring arena at Pond is in desperate need of an upgrade, as it has surpassed its intended lifespan. This shortage of ice availability will soon become even more apparent. These are only a few of the reasons why it is crucial for us to plan for the future now.

the solution

Join us on our journey to make the dream of the Orono Rink a reality. The plans presented on the following pages hold the key to our future success. With the stars aligning and our agreement to purchase the adjacent land, we are one step closer to bringing this vision to life. The unwavering support of the school and multiple boards within our hockey association further solidifies our commitment. But we cannot do this alone. We need the support of our community to raise the necessary funds and turn this dream into a legacy. Together, let’s create a state-of-the-art facility that will not only benefit our players but inspire generations to come. Join us today and become a part of something truly remarkable.

design v.1

In this design you will see a new front entrance to create community through social gathering areas, concession stands, and new meeting facilities.  With each design you will see this foyer modernized to welcome our players, fans and those that visit.   In Design V.1 a new practice facility with minimal seating is also attached through the foyer.   This will allow for the necessary ice time and also provide the facilities needed to host tournaments and provide additional revenue.   Additional parking and a through drive allowing an entrance on Hwy 6 is also added.

design v.2

Design v.2 expands on v.1 creating a more connected walkway between arenas.  This will allow a “catwalk” type experience and viewing into both rinks simultaneously.   In this design, you will also see updated varsity locker rooms located near the current locker room facility.  The foyer, practice sheet of ice and additional locker rooms remain the same.

design v.3

Design v.3 is our premier rink.  Here is our vision and ultimate goal for the Orono Rink.   This design connects the arenas with a similar grand foyer, but also provides the possibility of a new two-story dryland area.   In this rendering, the new sheet of ice becomes the premier rink for Orono Varsity games.  Seating will increase to hold 800 visitors.  New varsity locker rooms are found between the two sheets and service both arenas.   This makes the new additional our state-of-the-art facility that other associations will try to emulate.
