KENTVILLE – The indoor soccer dome in Kentville will henceforth be known as the Credit Union Rec Complex.

The name change comes as part of a significant sponsorship contribution from Valley Credit Union that will see $100,000 invested in the facility throughout the next 10 years. The complex, owned and operated by the Valley District Soccer Association, is also home to the Kings County Squash Club.

“The newly named Credit Union Rec Complex is one of the premiere indoor turf facilities in Atlantic Canada,” said Matt Schurman, president of the facility.

“We are very excited about this partnership with Valley Credit Union. Not only will their investment allow us make necessary capital improvements, but they are a locally focused cooperative with deep roots and commitment to the Annapolis Valley.”

The recreation complex opened in February 2005. The indoor field is used for many things, including baseball, rugby, football, model airplane flying events and walking programs.

“We have watched the facility become so much more than just the “soccer dome”; it’s become a true multi-use facility,” said Len Ells, Valley Credit Union President and CEO.

“It is a great fit for us to help support the Credit Union Rec Complex as it continues to expand its awareness and use in the community.”
