2015-2016 Minnetonka Skippers
Dear MHS/MYHA Boys Hockey Families and Alumni-
MYHA has received approval to build a second rink attached to Pagel! On behalf of Minnetonka Boys HS Hockey I am reaching out to ask for your support. 15 years ago Pagel Activity Center was built because Minnetonka Hockey families stepped up and raised $1.5 Million.We have all directly benefited through having Pagel as our home arena. Now is time for Phase2 / Rink2! We are in dire need of a new rink! We have 6 weeks to raise $2 Million to make it happen. Can you help? More information on this project and fundraising campaign can be found at tonkahockey.org.
Here are the highlights:
MYHA needs to raise $2 Million Dollars by March 1 2016 in order to break ground.
This new sheet has been in planning for three years now and final approvals were received last month by the City of Minnetonka.
If ground breaks this spring our players will be skating in November 2016!
This new sheet of ice will be built on the MHS campus and will attach to the current Pagel Activity Center.
This new rink will provide the high school teams more home practice ice while eliminating the risk of 35 high school players driving daily to and from Minnetonka B Rink.
This new rink will provide MYHA 1200+ hours of ice per season. All players will benefit from a new state-of-the-art dryland training center.
MYHA is dire need for a new sheet of ice. Our membership is growing and we cannot find any more available ice.
MYHA membership overall is up 36% over the past 10 years MYHA currently provides 30% less ice hours per player per season than our competition/neighboring associations.
We are currently utilizing the maximum allowable hours at Pagel, Minnetonka A/B, and every other arena within 20 miles. Victoria arena does not give MYHA priority and has been renting us less hours each year.
