The Centre Ice Sportsplex at the Nottawasaga Inn Resort features 2 NHL ice surfaces for guest and community use

The Nottawasaga Inn, owned by the sports and community minded Biffis family, have been welcoming guests to the 269 room resort since 1969. The family is now very proud to offer guests of the resort and local community the convenience of the Centre Ice Sportsplex with two NHL size professional quality ice surfaces. With a love of sports, the Biffis family had a dream of supporting the community with developing arena facilities in an area lacking local ice time for sports teams and groups. In October 2006, one rink surface opened and a second in December 2007, met with rave reviews from customers and local sports enthusiasts.

The Centre Ice Sportsplex arena features 2 NHL size professional quality ice surfaces, 12 oversized change rooms with in-floor heating, integrated coaches rooms, stadium seating, VIP box suites, Breakaway Sports Bar, multipurpose room and hosts ladies and men’s recreational hockey leagues. Nottawasaga Inn Resort is the ideal location for hockey tournaments, skills development, training camps, hockey schools, figure skating, team building and recreational skating.

Not only does the Simcoe County resort offer this fabulous facility, but also boasts 45 holes of golf and a 70,000 sq. ft indoor Sports and Leisure Dome. Highlights of the indoor recreation centre are a 3,000 sq. ft. health and fitness centre, a 25 meter tropical pool with beach entry and wheelchair accessibility, 100 ft waterslide, wading area, water umbrella, sauna and whirlpool. The Ontario resort facility also features 3 indoor tennis courts, 3 international squash courts, racquetball and a professional fitness studio offering a variety of classes. For the kids or kids at heart, there is an 18-hole Jungle Quest mini-golf masterpiece as well as the challenge of the arcades in the Grand Games Room. Parents can enjoy their weekend getaway as the kids are taken care of with supervised activities in the Nic Nac child care centre so everyone can take advantage of all the resort has to offer. The Alliston resort was awarded the 2010 Toronto Sun Readers Choice Gold Award for Favourite Ontario Resort and Favourite Hockey Arena, a tribute to the Biffis family to providing an exceptional Ontario resort experience.

The fresh country air and tranquil surroundings of the Nottawasaga Valley provide a perfect setting for family vacations, recreation days, couples retreats and the ultimate golf getaway. Located in Alliston, Ontario, an easy 45 minutes north of Toronto, the resort also features three restaurants and extensive banquet and meeting facilities suited for corporate or incentive groups.
