NRYHA New Facility Updates

Here We Go NRYHA!


Joint Statement


At its regular monthly meeting on January 9, 2023, the New Richmond City Council approved a request from the New Richmond Youth Hockey Association (NRYHA) to acquire seven acres of land in the Business & Technical Park for the intended purpose of constructing a new multi-purpose community facility. Utilizing this land for such a facility will undoubtedly invigorate the local economy and serve everyone from youth to seniors in the New Richmond area through health, wellness, and training-related activities. NRYHA will be the anchor of the multi-purpose facility which contemplates two covered sheets of ice for hockey. The City Council and NRYHA Board of Directors will memorialize the terms of the agreement for the Business & Technical Park land acquisition in the coming months.

The existing hockey facility, located at 450 Sports Center Road, was built in the late 1970s and served the needs of local athletes for many years. The existing rink is now in need of significant repairs and improvements and no longer meets the needs of the growing community.

There is a considerable amount of work ahead for the NRYHA, including but not limited to engineering/design work and a capital campaign. There are many decisions yet to be made, but securing a site for a future facility at this moment in time allows the NRYHA to move forward with both short-term and long-range planning. The City Council is pleased to partner with the NRYHA and recognizes the positive impact that hockey has in the community, and is excited about the potential opportunities that a multi-purpose facility could provide for all citizens in the New Richmond area.
