Norway House Cree Nation’s new fabric-covered outdoor rinks are a cost-effective option, providing fun for the whole community. This packaged building comes with fibreglass boards, interior and exterior lights, signage, nets, and supply and install services by our crews. The rink requires no concrete pad, while the fabric cover is the perfect way to lower maintenance costs while keeping that outdoor feel!

Project Scope

In February 2021, we delivered two fabric-covered community rinks to Norway House Cree Nation in northern Manitoba. In total, the project includes three outdoor ice rinks under two fabric-covered buildings. The first building is 65’ wide x 126’ long with one 60’ x 120’ rink underneath. The second building is 65’ x 140’ with a 60’ x 100’ rink and a 60’ x 40’ skating area. The three different-sized rinks represent three different learning stages of skating, and allow older kids to play on a single rink themselves.

Fabric-covered Community Rinks

The fabric cover provides a cost-effective recreational option for Norway House Cree Nation, and for any northern Manitoba community needing new rinks. No concrete is involved in the construction, while the fabric protects the rinks from snowfall and decreases maintenance. The community can also use the rinks for events year-round.

Along with the fabric cover, Cobra Structures supplied and installed the rinks’ boards, interior and exterior lights, signage, and nets.

“This is about giving our players and families extra time to skate and play the sport they want, hockey being one of them,” said Norway House Cree Nation Chief Larson Anderson. “We know that keeping our children busy and teaching them about teamwork is important.”
