County honours Mr. Randy Rosen’s contributions to the sports community

Today, Strathcona County proudly unveiled the newly named Randy Rosen Rink at its Sherwood Park Arena and Sports Centre, amongst a small outdoor ceremonial gathering of Mr. Rosen and his close family and supporters.

The rink naming celebrates Mr. Rosen’s exemplary mentorship throughout the local hockey and ball hockey community. Mr. Rosen has coached at nearly every level of minor hockey over the past 19 years, in addition to running a local ball hockey league for the past nine years.

"Strathcona County’s greatest asset is people like Mr. Randy Rosen,” says Mayor Rod Frank. “His impact on our community is based on his long-standing modelling of leadership, professionalism and integrity. From today on, we will carry Coach Rosen’s passion for ‘building up the other’ every time we enter Randy Rosen’s Rink.”

Today’s signage unveiling follows Council’s unanimous approval of naming the ice surface, inside the Sherwood Park Arena and Sports Centre, as Randy Rosen Rink.  The February 2, 2021 motion was supported with nominations from the local sport community, including the Sherwood Park Kings Athletic Club.

Set in the centre of Alberta’s energy and agricultural heartland, Strathcona County is a thriving, successful and vibrant community of over 98,000 residents. Strathcona County is made up of the urban area of Sherwood Park and a large adjacent rural area of farms, acreages and smaller hamlets. It is home to 75 per cent of hydrocarbon processing in Western Canada. Strathcona County is a leader in environmental conservation, and 55 per cent of its land is within the UNESCO Beaver Hills Biosphere. With a focus on economic, governance, social, cultural and environmental sustainability, Strathcona County is committed to balancing the unique needs of its diverse community.
