About the Metro Sports Foundation:

Established in 2007, the Metro Sports Foundation, a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization was derived from a community need - an

insufficiency in ice availability and capacity for the Fargo hockey and ice skating constituency, including the four Fargo youth

hockey clubs, the Fargo Park District and the Fargo public and private schools. The beginning of the foundation’s community

service to fulfill that need was realized in 2008 with the opening of Phase I of Scheels Arena in the form of a 5,000 seat hockey

arena. Today, the organization continues to work toward the creation of additional sheets of ice as well as serve the youth sporting

community through its mission of enriching youth activities in the Fargo-Moorhead area through the promotion and hosting of

sporting events that offer players, coaches and the community the opportunity to participate at the highest level of sportsmanship.
