  1. Skate & Hockey ComplexRiverwalk Recreational Center Capital Outlay Proposal

  2. Our Vision • Implement #3 Community Vision 2000 Goal – Skatepark while supporting Riverwalk Recreational Center & Hockey Rink • History of Skateboarding & Inline Skating • Background – Skatepark & Hockey • Revenue neutral-income will offset maintenance & operating expenses • $266,000 capital investment

  3. History of Skateboarding & Inline Skating • Skateboarding started in mid-60s from surf culture • Types of skateboarding: vert, street skating, stand-up downhill racing, luge • Inline skating started in 1980 – one of fastest growing sports • Types of inline skating: recreational, vert, aggressive, hockey, & speed • Fastest growing sport – 10 million skateboarders & 30 million inline skaters in the US

  4. Background – Skatepark • Local youth-use sidewalks since 70s • 80-100 active skateboarders • With dedicated facility: 100-150 skaters • Demand is high & growing • Albuq: skatepark most widely used facility • Exposure to liability is less than feared – only 2 claims in 11 months (Albuquerque 450,000 pop) • Skaters drawn to park-easier to enforce ordinances • Economic development draw for traveling families

  5. Inline Hockey Program • Youth hockey has operated for 6 years in Carlsbad • Blades/Jenerations facility was used but is no longer operating • Carlsbad Hockey Assoc. (CHA) has 70 players and is a member of USA Inline Hockey • USA Inline provides insurance and rules governing play • Incidental contact only, like soccer, and games have officiating to enforce rules • No major injuries during 6 years of play • Spring and fall seasons totaling 24 weeks/year

  6. Inline Hockey Program • Hockey programs in:-Alamogordo 90 players-Las Cruces 140 players-El Paso 225 players-Midland 270 players- Lubbock, Amarillo, Albuquerque • Carlsbad teams have typically played in 5 or 6 tournaments/year • Anticipate 125 to 150 players if new facility is constructed

  7. Proposed Inline Hockey Facility • 75’ by 150’ concrete playing surface with fiber reinforced plastic dasher boards • dasher board support frame constructed of galvanized steel for low maintenance • experience at other facilities has shown these facilities have low maintenance costs • CHA players would pay $30 per year membership fee to Recreation Center to cover maintenance • CHA would continue to provide its own player insurance • facility also to be used for roller skating and inline skating etc.
