 First Skate in ATB Centre: June 5, 2016

The winners of our First Skate Contest, Todd Hopkins (standing, fifth from right) and Mitch Lonnberg (crouching, sixth from right) brought their family and friends out for the first-ever skate in ATB Centre. They were joined by Councillor Rob Miyashiro (left), who chairs the ATB Centre Steering Committee.


 

About the Project

Phase 1 elements total more than 125,000 square feet and include:

Two NHL-sized ice surfaces

  • Spectator seating for 900 (600+300)
  • Designated dressing rooms (male and female)
  • Food and beverage services
  • Meeting room
  • Offices of Lethbridge Minor Hockey Association
  • Offices of Lethbridge Skating Club

10-sheet curling facility

  • Change rooms
  • Spectator seating
  • Lounge
  • Pro shop
  • Home of Lethbridge Curling Club

ATB Centre is located at the corner of Britannia Boulevard West and Mauretania Road West, adjacent to West Lethbridge Centre schools in Crossings subdivision. Located in central West Lethbridge, Crossings is designed to accommodate the educational, recreational, cultural and commercial needs of the area.

The two new ice surfaces increase the total number in the city to eight from six and will enable Lethbridge to attract regional, provincial, and national ice competitions, attractions and special events. In addition, they provide greater opportunities for existing organizations and groups from surrounding regions to practice and play within the City of Lethbridge. Previously, ice availability was below the optimal level of one ice surface for every 13,500 residents. Numerous user groups have felt this pinch every year as they attempted to schedule ice for practices, games, tournaments and other competitions or programs.
 
The new curling facility replaces the former curling facility located at the Civic Ice Centre. The 60+ year old curling facility at the Civic Centre on 6th Avenue South downtown is aging and in need of replacement. The ATB Centre provides curlers in Lethbridge with enhanced technology as well as an improved ice plant, ice surfaces, facilities and lounge. The old curling facility will close permanently in the late summer of 2016 when the Lethbridge Curling Club completes its move into ATB Centre.

Earth-friendly Fact: Waste heat from the refrigeration ice plant will be used for in-floor heating in spectator areas and change rooms as well as the arena ice melt pit. Extra waste heat will be piped to Phase 2 of ATB Centre and may be used for domestic water preheating as well as additional in-floor heating.

Phase 1 Project Update

May 9, 2016 - The building was officially turned over to the City of Lethbridge by the construction contractor. Commissioning (start-up) of the ice plant was completed, and staff began making ice in the twin arenas on May 12. Minor finishing touches are being done by the contractor around the facility. Ice making in the curling facility is expected to take place in late summer.
