Lockport Ice Arena & Sports Center, Inc. is the federally-designated 501(c)(3) not-for-profit corporation that owns Cornerstone CFCU Arena. The not-for-profit’s stated mission is to combat juvenile delinquency and community deterioration, promote social welfare and physical fitness, lessen the burdens of government and promote the development of good sportsmanship through the conduct of supervised athletic games.
Cornerstone CFCU Arena was conceived by a group of dedicated civic leaders to bring a state-of-the-art facility to Lockport, New York. A strong belief of the non-profit organization is that any form of skating could turn lives around – especially for young individuals, returning Veterans, and those with developmental disabilities and special needs. The addition of this community linchpin is seen as an economic development engine that will have a substantial impact on the City of Lockport, eastern Niagara County and throughout Western New York.
Lockport Ice seeks to engage all members of the public and give them an opportunity to participate in a form of friendly competition in ways they would not be able to afford. It is the vision of Lockport Ice to make our facility a shining beacon for the region; drawing young people to the various programming options offered, while providing a positive, life-changing experience.
