Terry Martin Pride’s Corner Tournament Nov. 20-21 at SUNY Canton

Tuesday, November 9th, 2010

An action-packed weekend awaits SUNY Canton alumni, parents, friends and hockey fans.

The third annual Terry Martin Pride’s Corner Tournament will be held Saturday and Sunday, Nov. 20 and 21, with tours of the College’s new athletic facility, a pre-game reception, and the men’s ice hockey tournament highlighting the weekend’s events.

Before the first puck drops, attendees are invited to:

  • Noon – 2 p.m.: A tour of the new Convocation, Athletic and Recreation Center, nicknamed Roos House, including the new ice arena. The tour will leave from French Hall on SUNY Canton’s campus.
  • 2 – 4 p.m.: A pregame reception at Sergi’s Banquet Hall, 31 Main Street, Canton.

The schedule for tournament (all games held at the Canton Pavilion, located on Lincoln Street):

  • Saturday, Nov. 20, 5 p.m.: SUNY Canton vs. SUNY Oswego
  • Saturday, Nov. 20, 8 p.m.: John Carroll University vs. Cornell University
  • Sunday, Nov. 21, Noon: Consolation game
  • Sunday, Nov. 21, 3 p.m.: Championship game

In 2008, SUNY Canton won the inaugural tournament with a final-second overtime goal to prevail over the University of New England, 5-4. The Roos will look to reclaim that title after being edged by John Carroll University 4-3 in the first game of last year’s tournament. They went on to win the consolation game over Norwich 8-1 the following day.

Martin, the tournament’s namesake, served as the College’s head men’s ice hockey coach from 1974-1999, compiling a record of 527-211-29, including a 102-11-8 mark in his final four seasons. His team won 12 national championship titles throughout his career. Martin also served as men’s athletic director, women’s soccer coach, men’s lacrosse coach and taught in the physical education department at various points while at SUNY Canton.

He was the 2009 recipient of the American Hockey Coaches Association’s prestigious John “Snooks” Kelley Founders Award, recognizing the effect Martin had on the collegiate sport.

The tournament was established in 2008 by Roos’ Head Men’s Ice Hockey Coach Eric McCambly. “I started the tournament to honor Terry for his extraordinary accomplishments and remarkable pride the program had during his leadership,” said McCambly. “That pride still exists today with his former players, which is why we include pride in the tournament’s name. Terry guided the program to new heights in the 70’s, 80’s, and 90’s and did so for pure love of the game. Along the way, he and his players brought incredible respect and prominence to the College with 12 national titles.”

“We’ve been anxious to get this project underway for a long time,” said SUNY Canton President Joseph L. Kennedy. “The new building will continue the transformation of our campus, and the facilities will benefit both the College and the community. We expect it to dramatically impact the regional economy.”

The Convocation, Athletic, and Recreation Center will provide ample space for indoor athletics, including basketball courts, a lap pool, and a field house. It will also house SUNY Canton’s fitness center and provide increased space for activities such as concerts, graduation ceremonies, trade shows, and other events. Additionally, it will provide the local community with further options to host larger events for entertainment, high school playoffs, and local sports tournaments.

State Budget Includes SUNY Canton CARC Project

Monday, April 7th, 2008

The 2008-09 New York State budget included $21.2 million for SUNY Canton’s new Convocation, Athletic and Recreation Center (CARC) Project, announced President Joseph L. Kennedy.

“This funding will not only help SUNY Canton build a new athletic center,” Kennedy said, “It will dramatically transform our entire campus and help bring additional funding and jobs to the area.”

Athletic Center

In 2006, the College received $18 million to construct an ice rink and convocation center. The scope of the initial project changed dramatically because of a need for a new athletic facility. The new project is estimated to exceed $40 million, and will include a gymnasium, field house, fitness center, locker rooms, staff offices, pool and an ice rink.

Last October, the athletic department unveiled a $1.8 million all-weather lighted synthetic turf field, which is currently being utilized by both SUNY Canton’s athletic teams and several area High School and College teams.

The College has already begun planning and design phases of the construction project utilizing M/E Engineering of Plattsburgh and Architectural Resources of Buffalo, for site sampling, surveying, and blueprints. An official groundbreaking ceremony is scheduled for later this spring, with a projected completion date of January 2010.

“The State University Construction Fund and the architects have worked closely with us to scope out the immediate and future needs of the campus,” Kennedy said. “We still may not have all the funding for equipping the entire building, but we are certainly moving in a very positive direction.”

SUNY Canton worked closely with both former Governor Eliot Spitzer’s and Governor David A. Paterson’s administrations, state senators Darrel J. Aubertine and Joseph A. Griffo, former State Senator James W. Wright, assembly members Dede Scozzafava and Janet L. Duprey, and several other members of the New York State Legislature, and local community.

Site Prep Begins for New Roos’ House

Friday, November 30th, 2007

CONSTRUCTION PROGRESS - Pictured is Michael Blakely of SJB Services, Inc., operating an exploratory drill on the future site of SUNY Canton's Athletic and Convocation Center.

One of the first steps in laying a solid foundation for SUNY Canton’s Athletic and Convocation Center is underway.

Workers from SJB Services, Inc., a geotechnical and environmental testing and consulting company, were drilling holes to find the bedrock in the fields adjoining the college’s new lighted all-weather synthetic turf field.

Site survey, soil investigations and the preliminary design work have all begun. Actual construction of the $36.7 million complex is set to begin in the spring. The first phase of the project is targeted for completion during the Fall 2009 Semester.

SUNY Canton Announces Athletic Facility Plans

Thursday, November 1st, 2007

SUNY Canton President Joseph L. Kennedy announced today that the college will be increasing the size and scope of its future Athletic and Convocation Center.

Site survey, soil investigations and the preliminary design work are underway with actual construction set to begin in the spring. The new plans are to build a $36.7 million complex.

“We have added an additional $18.7 million to our new capital plan for these facilities,” Kennedy said. “Combined with the previously approved $18 million from the state, this will enable us to include all of the modern amenities that this type of project should incorporate. It will dramatically change the atmosphere and personality of our campus.”

The new plan includes a hockey arena, gymnasium, field house, fitness center, pool, locker room facilities, and athletic department office space. Previous designs had planned to continue using the gymnasium and facilities in Dana Hall, but that is no longer a viable option.

“At this time, the renovation costs far exceed the costs of replacing Dana Hall,” Kennedy said. “Because of recently diagnosed structural problems in Dana Hall, we are in the process of vacating that facility, utilizing other on-campus temporary space, and moving forward as expeditiously as possible with our new Athletic and Convocation Center.”

SUNY Canton athletics have experienced tremendous growth recently. The college’s teams now compete against other four-year institutions in the Sunrise Conference of the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics. Men’s and women’s cross country teams were added this past year and the college recently adopted Kangaroos as its new athletic nickname.

“Our athletic program continues to evolve and progress at an exciting pace,” Kennedy said. “As we do so, we will continue to recognize those who have made it possible. The Dana name will be remembered and honored appropriately within the new facility.”

SUNY Canton’s new all-weather, lighted synthetic turf field was unveiled this fall. It has hosted the college’s soccer teams and has been extensively utilized for the area’s high school Section X soccer playoffs. The college also did extensive renovations on the cross country trails that run behind the campus through the woods along the Grasse River. In addition, a new on-campus baseball field will be ready for competition next fall.
