Kids Arena allowing user groups early access

first_imgDespite delaying the new Kids Arena Fieldhouse’s grand opening, which affected a lot of the building’s user groups, the committee has decided to open the facility to its user groups by Nov. 14.After revealing the delayed grand opening, the committee was approached by the Fort St. John Soccer Club, who expressed the difficulties that would ensue with scheduling without the use of the facility.Trevor Bolin, Co-Chair of the Kids Arena Fieldhouse Committee, says the comittee and soccer club met Friday morning, and determined that the user groups will be able to use the facility for league games until the grand opening takes place on Jan. 2, 2012.- Advertisement -Bolin says the committee and the user groups agreed that this “soft opening” is a proper resolution method and could also benefit the new facility, as the user groups will provide feedback in order to help “work out all the kinks” within the newly renovated facility.Programming, public rentals and drop-ins are to be phased in during  November and December.The Arena’s grand opening is still scheduled for Jan 2, 2012, after which the facility will be open to the general public as well.Advertisementlast_img read more
