WHO WE ARE
In August 2000, the patrons of Scottsville
Ice Arena were informed that the building was to be closed
and that all programs were to be cancelled.
Knowing that over 200 local families depended
on the facility, a small but determined group of parents
stepped in and asked the owners if they could lease the
building for just one more season. The owners agreed, and
over the next 4 weeks volunteers put in hundreds of hours
cleaning, painting and repairing the building so it could
open in time.
One year later a Non Profit Volunteer Organization
was formed to continue operating the facility. There is
a volunteer Board of Directors made of current and past
hockey parents. We are a separate organization from any
Youth Hockey Organization and receive no outside funding.
We leased the building for the first four
years and in 2004 purchased the land and building. Many
improvements have been made including adding a Sports Bar
and Restaurant, a new ProShop, two new High School Locker
Rooms, a warm room with child play area, and most important
a complete replacement of the refrigeration system giving
us the best ice in Rochester. Our staff is proud of the
facility and it shows.
Our primary customers are Monroe County
Youth Hockey, TriCounty Youth Hockey, Geneseo Youth Hockey,
and the Churchville Chili and Rush Henrietta High School
We are committed to the community hosting
daytime school gym programs from the Wheatland Chili and
Gates School District. We have Public Skating Sessions Sat
evenings and Sun afternoons that many area families and
youth groups attend.
Boys and Girl Scouts have skating parties
through out the season. During the summer our Farmers Market
is held in our parking lot and has become a “Sunday
Morning” gathering place.
A few times a year we hold rink fundraisers
such as Winterfest, Chicken BBQ, and a Summer Golf Tournament.
