During the regular meeting on May 16, Clarence-Rockland council approved a resolution to sign an agreement with the CIH Academy to take over the management of the Clarence-Rockland Arena. The arena has been managed by the CIHA since it opened in 2011, but effective August 1, Clarence-Rockland will take over operations.
« In the early 2000’s, Mr. Robert Bourdeau envisioned a hockey academy with professional facilities that would receive international athletes, » said Mayor Mario Zanth. « The municipality can count itself lucky that this major project was conceived in the City of Clarence-Rockland. The Academy has been an early partner for the City of Clarence-Rockland by managing the municipal arena since its opening in 2011. With this change in management, the City of Clarence-Rockland will be able to offer a full range of on-ice services in our two infrastructures located in Rockland and Clarence.”
Sports associations in Clarence-Rockland will be contacted soon to discuss further details and give contact information. There will be no interruption of service during the transition.
