The St. Thomas Academy Ice Arena is the temporary home for the University of St. Thomas Men’s and Women’s Ice Hockey programs. To be able to transition to Division I and generate the needed revenue out of the rink, there needs to be three main enhancements to the arena.

Game Production 

A new space must be built out so that we are able to enhance our game production. This area would include a place for the announcers, game operations, cameras, as well as a replay system which is required at the Division I level. The ability to more professionally broadcast our games will not only allow us to maximize our revenue streams in this area, but better present the brand of St. Thomas hockey to fans, donors, and potential recruits .

Guest Experience

We aim to make enhancements to a few select areas within STA Ice Arena which will allow us to create a more premium experience for guests. This is extremely important as it will allow us to sell these areas as Premium Seating for the next few seasons prior to us having our own rink and will generate important revenue. This would also include branding opportunities in the rink to help give the arena a more intercollegiate feel.

Locker Rooms

The third enhancement will be upgrades to the Men's Hockey Locker Room. These upgrades include branding and technology to both provide an exceptional experience for our current student-athletes as well as assist our new coaching staff in recruiting the best possible student-athletes to compete for the University of St. Thomas.
