    An interesting project

    An NA sized open rink (Poštová banka aréna) was officially opened today in the town of Spišské Vlachy (3600 inhabitans) in the Spiš region in Eastern Slovakia. The reconstruction of the old rink was paid by the town together with the "Institute of Hockey Studies" (Inštitút hokejových štúdií) and Poštová banka foundation.

    Couldn´t find a picture, which would show the whole reconstruction, only one from construction:



    but you can see it finished in the video here.

    They want to install a technology that would allow them to have ice up until 15 grades Celsius.

    The rink will primarily used for the "School hockey and ball hockey league", which will start in the region in 12/13.

    40 complete equipment sets for children were donated to the town.

    There supposedly are plans to build similar rinks "in the regions" (meaning smallish towns/villages).

    Might not seem like much, but I think it´s pretty great idea as nowadays it is the kids from villages that are more likely to do physical activity in this country in my experience, so it´s good to see that here (and hopefully elsewhere as well) they will be given the opportunity. And who knows maybe some of those kids playing hockey/ball hockey will move to the "real" hockey clubs in the region later on.

    It might be that the project of the arena is not as dead as I originally thought. This website: www.icearena-senec.sk , which was started in May 2012 claims that the rink in Senec will be opened on September 1st 2013 and that the town will have a hockey club registered with SZĽH.

    Visualisations from the website:





    I guess that unless someone by any chance visits Bratislavská Street 57 in Senec we will have no way of knowing whether something is happening there already.

    EDIT: Or the project might be much more real after all when I looked at the website a 2nd time. It says that on 2nd of June the Construction and Planning Commission of the town Senec approved the project.

    The red arrow on this picture shows where the rink should be built:

    The new member of the Slovak Extraliga ŠHK 37 Piešťany have requested a government grant in order to build a training rink, so IF they get a positive answer they will build the rink in the next three years.

    It would appear that the government is planning to give out 12 million Euro to SZĽH for projects of building small rinks. So towns can apply for a 1 million grant to help them build small rinks. As mentioned above Piešťany are on of those interested, another applicant is Kežmarok who would use the money to finish their rink which was undergoing a complete reconstruction which was however stopped due to the whole Deaflympics fiasco. The locations should supposedly be clear in a few weeks and the 12 rinks should be build in the next 4 years. (Since they´ve chosen to go this way, I personally hope that SZĽH will concetrate on two main things while choosing the locations: 1) places with no rinks in the area and 2) choosing projects which also involve private investors/town investments, so the rinks are proper size rinks, which I think are the two main things that will mean that this whole thing will make sense at least in hockey growing in new areas.)

    It seems that the rink in Čaňa (near Košice) has been finished finally. The IIHF World Girls Hockey Day organized by a girls hockey club from Košice took place there about two weeks ago.







    Also, the rink in Klokočina, Nitra seems to be almost finished as well:

    There most probably will be a new training rink in Liptovský Mikuláš. It will be build next to the old rink and the project also includes updating the technology of the old rink. Main investor of the project is Slovak NT goali Ján Laco.

    Visualisation:



    Also, the rink in Petržalka should be finished in a couple of weeks, latest pictures from the teams´ fb page:





    Also in other news the rink in Čaňa has indeed been finished as mentioned in one of my earlier posts and is currently used for hockey purposes. Former NT player Igor Liba has started a hockey academy for kids aged 6-15 there. Here a link to the academy´s website with a lot of pictures frominside the rink.

    Appearantly a private investor wants to build a sport complex with a hockey rink and inside pool in Snina, a town of about 20 000 in Prešov region in Eastern Slovakia.

    EDIT: Adding visualisation

    According to SLZH president Igor Nemeček Levoča and Benrolákovo will be the two places that will gte new rinks this year in this project. Two-three rinks hould be build each year to make it ten.

    The construction of the training rink in Liptovský Mikuláš should start this autumn according to the latest info.

    A training rink should also be built in Prešov, the construction could start either this autumn or in the year 2014. I'm not sure how likely it is though as there have been plans for a training rink in Prešov years ago already and nothing ever happened.

    There are also plans to build a trainiing rink in Piešťany which should become some kind of national training centre for U18-U20 players and therefore should be financed by the government. Works on it could also start sometimes during autumn.

    Piešťany will get 1 million euro for this from the reserve of the prime minister, another million will go to Levoča (they want to build a new rink, not continue with the Deaflympics project) and another to Banská Bystrica for reconstruction works.

    There are also plans for a hockey rink in Pezinok: http://www.asb.sk/architektura/proje...-hokej-a-relax

    A previously open ice-rink in Sabinov (a small town of about 12000 inhabitants in Eastern Slovakia) has been changed to an indoor rink recently:





    In early November construction works started on the training rink in Levoča. Let's hope this works out better than the whole Deaflympics fiasco.

    There is also a new project for a sports complex in Rača, Bratislava, in which Ľubomír Višňovský is involved and which also includes an ice-rink:

    Update

    The rink in Levoča now has a roof and they will now move on to the technological stuff as well as the surroundings. However they have some problems with getting the money for everything (as they only got 1 million Euro from the government), but the rink should be open at the end of this year anyway:



    Video HERE

    Another project that has been struggling with finances is the sports complex in Poprad, which is a project of players Bartečko, Škovira and Suchý. It should have been finished at the end of last year, but has been stuck looking like this for several months, but according to Bartečko they would like to finish the ice rink part this year:



    Meanwhile the works on the KVP arena in Košice have started back in February, pics from early of this months:



    More pics HERE


    Nothing has moved in regards to the training rink in Piešťany, except it would seem that SZĽH wants to move the project to Senec, as the town has shown willingness to invest its own money into the project.

    There are once again plans for a training rink in Prešov, visualisation:





    The newest information I could find regarding the rink in Pezinok was information regarding them getting the various permissions, but no idea on whether the actual construction already started.

    The rink in Vranov nad Topľou remains unfinished and it's possible that it will actually be finished as a sports hall not an ice rink.

    No updates about Zvolen.

    The new rink in Košice, Aréna Sršňovm has been finished:





    More pics from the interior can be found HERE.

    In the first week of May, the works on the new training rink PSK Arena in Presov also started:



    Haven't found any information on the national hockey centre in Senec that would be newer than the info from autumn 2015.

    The rink in Vranov nad Toplou should be opened sometimes next week. There will also be a new hockey club (Vranov Bulls), 120 children showed interest in joining during the recruitment program that they did in the schools.

    The MM arena in Krasno nad Kysucou should be opened on December 2nd-3rd according to their facebook page:



    The reconstruction of the ice rink in Kezmarok which was left useless following the 2011 Deaflympics fiasco started back in September and should be finished in 290 days since then:



    The rink in Žiar nad Hronom which wasn't working sice 2008 is also being reconstructed and should be finished at the end of 2018:

    I don't believe there is a new rink. All I could find when searching for a rink there was thisfacebook page: https://www.facebook.com/pg/Zimny.st...=page_internal

    The page is trying to advocate for a rink there, showing rinks in other small cities.

    The picture that you have on the website seems to be of the rink in Vranov nad Toplou. When you look at the right side of the picture there is a banner saying STD Arena which is the name of the arena in Vranov nad Toplou that was finished in 2016: http://hcbulls.sk/arena/

    A few pics from the hockey rink in Pezinok








    A new hockey club HK '18 Karpatsky sokol was founded there last month, with Miroslav Satan as their mentor. Their primary focus this year will be kids born in 2011 and 2012 and then they plan to start adding younger players each year



    In October the reconstructed rink in Kezmarok was re-opened although they still need a lot of money to finish everything. A few pics:
