Goals continue to be met as the proposed indoor ice facility in Sioux Falls comes closer to reality.  Over the past five years, the Ice Sports Association has been shaking the trees for money in hopes that enough would be raised to build a place to skate.  In that time over $5 million has been raised.  The finish line is $7.7 million.

Over time, the Ice Sports Association has earned the trust of individuals, businesses and even the City of Sioux Falls.  Now the final pushes come.  One of those being with the Sioux Falls Area Chamber of Commerce at a Community Appeals campaign at a kick-off Tuesday.

Representatives from the Chamber’s Community Appeals Committee, the Ice Sports Association Campaign Leaders and members of the user groups will share information about the $1.54 million campaign, which is part of a larger $7.7 million fundraising effort. This Chamber Community Appeals-approved campaign runs through March 29, 2013.

The SCHEELS IcePlex will be located within the 62-acre youth sports complex in northern Sioux Falls. The facility will sit on 11 acres of land provided by Sanford Health, located just west of the Sioux Falls Regional Airport, and will include: three regulation-size ice sheets with room to add a fourth sheet as demand grows; paved parking, locker and dressing rooms, seating, climate control, restrooms and concessions; and will be a debt-free, self-sufficient facility.  For more information about the Ice Sports Association, visit icesportsassociation.com.
