Survey: Amherst Stadium no-fee ice pilot

Have you used the ice at the Amherst Stadium this season? Whether your answer is yes or no, fill out this quick survey and you might win a $25 gift card from Atlantic Superstore!

In an effort to increase use of the Amherst Stadium and to support the Town of Amherst's Physical Activity Strategy, the Town of Amherst announced a pilot policy project to eliminate the ice-time fees for youth and youth-serving organizations who wish to use the Amherst Stadium. The aims of this policy are to encourage an increase in physical activity among young people, to help the Town of Amherst to be the most active, healthy community in NS, and to help create economic spin-offs for the Town.

You are invited to take part in a follow-up evaluation survey of the Ice Allocation Policy Project that is being implemented during the 2017-18 ice season at the Amherst Stadium. The purpose of this survey is to determine if the project continues to be successful and how it can continually be improved.

This evaluation is being conducted at Dalhousie University in partnership with the Town of Amherst and the Evaluation Committee of the project.  Both stadium users and non-users are encouraged to participate in the survey, including community members, business people, municipal and provincial government staff, and sports organizations members.
