Welcome to the Pownal Sports Centre Website
The new Pownal Sports Centre (twin facility) was opened in
November of 2004. This new, modern facility was delivered on time and within budget by a very committed group of volunteers from the community. The financial support from the business community, individuals, the town of Stratford and all levels of Government, was key to the success of this project.
In the fall of 2010 the Pownal Sports Centre completed major renovations which included adding a level above the lobby which features a community room, washrooms, kitchen and meeting room. The canteen was also moved from the Arena and is now located in the main lobby of the Pownal Sports Centre.
The Pownal Sports Centre is located 10 minutes from the Town of Stratford in the rural community of Pownal. This facility just .5 km off Trans Canada Highway #1. The facility houses two ice surfaces and amenities and a large lighted parking lot.
The entrance foyer is large and includes ample wall space to allow
for the display of tournament information, sponsor identification, notice
boards, messages etc. The foyer also includes bathroom facilities as well as the Rink Managers office.
Also located withing the foyer, is a fully stocked
hockey equipment store. This store carries sticks, blades, tape, hockey
equipment, replacement parts for helmets and skate sharpening equipment. This store will be open during the hours of tournament functions within the rink.
The main stadium is a very modern facility that can seat approximately 600 people. There is standing room for an additional 300. The player and penalty benches are located directly opposite from the seating, with
no fan benches behind them. The 4 large dressing rooms are located under the seating area and are equipped with showers, lavatories, benches and stick racks.
The Pownal Sports Centre has high speed internet and has most cell phone capabilities within the building.
Both the main stadium and the second arena contain separate Officials rooms which are equipped with showers and lavatories.
A large media/sound room overlooks the ice surface and
houses the sound equipment for the Sports Center.
A fully equipped medical room is located inside the entrance of the stadium.
The ice surface of the stadium is NHL regulation sized - 200 X 85.
The adjoining arena houses a room that includes some seating and a standing area which is located behind glass, with a view of the ice surface. Full washroom facilities are connected to the room for general public use.
The five dressing rooms in this area of the facility include showers and washrooms.
The arena ice surface is 190 X 75 and is available for practice if required.
This facility can seat approximately 150 and allows standing room for another 400.
The two ice surfaces are serviced by one ice surfacing machine but
have another ice machine for backup purposes.
The facilities that the Pownal Minor Hockey Association has to offer can compete with any in the Atlantic provinces.
