Site Selected for 2018 National Collegiate Roller Hockey Championships
NCRHA to host 20th annual event in Fargo, North Dakota
The National Collegiate Roller Hockey Association proudly announces the 20th National Collegiate Roller Hockey Championships, to be held April 11-15, 2018 in Fargo, North Dakota. Games will be played at the Southwest Youth Ice Arena, a dual sheet ice hockey building, with convenient access to hotels, restaurants, and more. There are several hotels directly across the street from the arena within walking distance, and several more within a five minute drive.
The Fargo-Moorhead Convention & Visitors Bureau hosted the 2017 NCRHA Summer Board of Directors Meeting in June 2017, and NCRHA Staff and Conference Directors toured the facility, town, and walked across the street from one of the adjacent hotels, and believe this will be a great event for all participants. The hospitality shown by the Fargo-Moorhead CVB to our meeting attendees was unparalleled, and they have plans to extend that same hospitality to NCRHA players, fans and family upon arrival in Fargo.
