The ice rink at the Centre 70 Arena has a new name. The 85′ by 200′ NHL-sized ice pad is now called the UFIT Rink and will bear the name for the next five years.

According to a release from the City, the sponsorship agreement was approved by City Council at its February 6, 2024, meeting. The naming rights come at a price of $5,000 per year for five years, according to the report received by Council at that meeting.

“We are grateful and fortunate to have local businesses like UFIT Kingston who are dedicated to supporting the health and wellbeing of the community,” said Amy Elgersma, Director of Recreation and Leisure Services for the City of Kingston.

“The funding from naming rights sponsorships is an important part of supporting the City’s efforts to provide affordable recreation opportunities.” 

UFIT Kingston is a fitness and training facility located at 720 Progress Ave., Unit 6, specializing in fitness classes, sports performance training, clinical kinesiology, and fascial stretch therapy services, according to the release.

“We are thrilled to partner with the City of Kingston on this opportunity. At UFIT, we believe in the power of fitness and recreation to bring people together, and we’re excited to support this fantastic facility that offers so much to local residents,” said Sara Maveety, Co-Owner & Operations Manager at UFIT Kingston.

“This partnership reflects our commitment to fostering a healthy, active lifestyle and giving back to the community that has supported us over the years. We look forward to seeing the UFIT Rink’s positive impact on local sports and recreational activities.”  

The UFIT Rink is in the Centre 70 Arena, located at 100 Days Road. The arena also offers a community meeting room, the Bloom CommUnity Café, and recreational programming throughout the year. 

In response to Kingstonist inquiries, the City shared that all naming and sponsorship opportunities are available on the City website: https://www.cityofkingston.ca/business-in-kingston/advertising-sponsorship-and-donations/. They are updated every few weeks, according to the City.
